MiniStage, operated by the team at eStage, uses the latest 3D printing technology and methods, including extruded plastic and UV reactive resin. We can produce detailed and complicated 1:25 and 1:50 model elements leaving model makers the valuable time required to work on finishes and paint effects.
We work directly with designers and model makers to create custom prints for your individual needs. We are also building a collection of standard models available for immediate purchase from our online store. These include everyday items regularly used in theatre productions, I.e. tables, chairs, doors, decks etc. We would love to hear from you if you have suggestions or ideas for things we should create and then stock.
We are working to develop and expand our printing services to the industry, so your requests, ideas, or feedback would be greatly received. Contact us with your thoughts; we cant wait to hear from you.
We are currently working to be as environmentally aware as possible by using biodegradable plastics, 100% green power, offsetting delivery carbon and planting a tree in order to sustain a positive impact.
Filament and Resin Printing
We print in-house using PLA (Polylactic Acid) filament it is the default filament of choice for most extrusion-based 3D printers. It is also one of the most environmentally friendly filaments on the market today. Derived from crops such as corn and sugarcane, PLA is renewable and, most importantly, biodegradable.
We also print using Resin (Photo polymers cured with UV light); this enables us to deliver model parts with layer heights from 0.15mm to as fine as 0.02mm producing amazingly detailed models.
We use 100% renewable solar, wind, and hydro electricity to run our printers and create 3D models. Each month, we support a range of carbon reduction projects certified at the highest level by Gold Standard or the Verified Carbon Standard.
We use 100% recycled packaging and carbon-neutral delivery methods, and to top it all off, we will plant one extra tree in our Ecologi Forest for every order placed.
