3D printing of a wide variety of components – our service for you
The printing by 3D printer is often the cheapest and simplest way to produce spare parts and prototypes. We offer to print your 3D object. To reinforce your3D object we have the possibility to insert carbon fibre, glass fibre or Kevlar into the print.
The advantages of 3D printing at a glance:
✅ Fast production of complex components
✅ Production of prototypes in small quantities
✅ Manufacture of small quantities
✅ Printing of parts in different bending strengths
✅ Aluminium-like material properties through the use of carbon fibres
✅ Tried and tested industrial additive manufacturing
✅ Transformed and shortened supply chain
Our 3D printing service for you:
- Easily upload your 3D models via our platform
- 3D printing in-house
- Analysis of your model for printability and material recommendations
- Printing of objects up to 320mm x 132mm x 154mm
- You will receive a non-binding offer from us in a timely manner.
What material is there for the 3D printer?
Using “Fused Filamet Fabrication” we print your model as a plastic matrix. In certain cases, it is advisable to insert reinforcing fibres into this matrix to enable higher material strength and resilience. As basic materials we use the following material:
Onyx is a black thermoplastic made of nylon and carbon fibres. It is characterised by high heat resistance and excellent surface properties. The added carbon fibres give Onyx an impressive 1.4 times the strength and stiffness of ABS. This has led to its use in a wide range of industrial applications today.
Flexural strength: 81 MPa
Bending stiffness 2.9 GPa
Heat deflection temperature: 145°C
Density: 1.2 g/cm3
Maximum stability with 3D printing
By inserting continuous fibres into the 3D print (CFF process), the strength of the objects printed by us is increased even further. For example, a combination of onyx and carbon fibre achieves 8 times the strength of ABS (a widely used 3D printing material).
Carbon fibres are used in industry, aerospace and wherever there is a demand for lightweight, robust parts. This fibre is ideally suited to replace aluminium components when inlaid in onyx material. A part reinforced with carbon fibre has six times the strength and 18 times the stiffness of pure onyx.
Flexural strength: 470 MPa
Bending stiffness: 51 GPa
The use of glass fibre increases the strength of an Onyx print by 2.5 and the stiffness by eight times. This puts it well behind carbon fibre, but scores points for its lower price.
Flexural strength: 210 MPa
Bending stiffness: 22 GPa
Kevlar fibre also increases the bending strength and flexural rigidity of objects, but is particularly characterised by its flexibility. Furthermore, materials reinforced with Kevlar are particularly durable, hard-wearing and abrasion-resistant.
Flexural strength: 190 MPa
Bending stiffness: 26 GPa

FAQ on 3D printing
We exclusively use “Thermoplastic Onyx” as the basic material. This material consists of nylon and carbon fibres and can be used universally and is characterised by its excellent surface finish and resilience. Furthermore, its strength can be further increased by reinforcing fibres.
In general, we can print all objects with dimensions up to 320mm x 132mm x 154mm. It is important that we receive the object from you as an “.stl” file and that your object does not contain any cavities.
This is how the process looks like:
- You send us the file of your object
- We check the printability of the object and send you a quote
- You agree to the offer
- We print and check the object
- We send you finished print
On average, you will receive the print 5 working days after the request.
Single prints as well as prints in high quantities are possible. There is no minimum order quantity.
Of course there is! You can order as a private person or for a company.
The printing plate measures 320mm x 132mm. We can print up to 154mm in height.
To print your object, we need a “.stl” file from you. To check whether your file is of the correct file type, right-click on the file in Explorer/File Manager and select “Properties”. Under “File type” you should now find “3D object (.stl)”.
It is not absolutely necessary to enter your telephone number in the contact form. However, this information makes it easier for us to contact you.
Of course, we will send you the 3D print. We will discuss the delivery address with you in advance.
Ja, klar! Sie können sich den 3D-Druck gerne an unserem Standort in Remscheid (Schmiedestr.4, 42899 Remscheid) abholen. Ein Zusenden ist aber auch möglich.
Data protection and business secrets are very important to us. As soon as you have received your print and let us know that you are satisfied with it, we will delete the file. We will only use your file for printing.
We would be happy to advise you personally on the subject of 3D printing. Simply contact us by e-mail (info [at] gsr-germany.de), phone (+49 21 91 – 58 33) .
Wir bieten Ihnen neben dem Druck der 3D-Objekte auch an, die 3D-Dateien für Sie zu erstellen. Senden Sie uns dafür einfach Ihre technische Zeichnung oder eine Skizze mit Maßen. Nach Rücksprache mit Ihnen drucken wir dann Ihr Objekt aus.
Dank des von uns verwendeten Onyx Materials sind Fehler in der Oberfläche eines Druckes höchst selten. Jedes Objekt wird nach dem Druck genaustens überprüft und Materialfehler gegebenenfalls behoben. Sollten Sie dennoch einmal einen nicht einwandfreien Druck erhalten, wenden Sie sich bitte umgehend an uns. Wir helfen Ihnen gerne weiter!
