Bilby 3D are the biggest distributor of consumer, educational and professional 3D printers, filament and 3D Printer Parts in Australia.
We have built our reputation on excellence of service, and knowledge and experience in 3D Printing.
We do not just sell 3D Printers. We use then and we know them!
We also manufacture a number of the Parts ourselves; have our own brand of 3D Printing filament, and offer a 3D Print service,
for those of you wanting to try before you buy, or just looking for a one off print for prototyping or that unique gift.
Buy A 3D Print
We love 3D Printing and have a bank of working machines printing client and in house models all day, every day (well almost). So we thought we would make some sames from each of our machines, and some of our favorite prints available for your to buy.
Use them to review a machine you are thinking of buying, or just as a unique gift for a friend, or even yourself.

Why we love 3D Printing
We know it is thrown around a lot and become clichè, but we really do believe 3D printing is going to change the world in a number of ways.
3D Printing : Medical Applications
As parents of a child with Kidney dysfunction (and a rare blood type to match), we (Lee and Chris Bilby, founders or Bilby 3D)
are without doubt skewed in favor of this technology because of the tremendous ramifications to organ transplants. We are really
excited that Kidneys biologically match to the patient from their own cells are being 3D Printed and that within only a few years we
will no longer see organ waiting lists, and rejections, as patients will be implanted with an organ that is, for all intent and purpose, their own!
We already have very successful use of 3D Printing technology to product hip and joint replacements in Europe, heart valves in the USA and
prosthetics for children that would normally not have them due to budgetary constraints.
Australia's own Health Physics (research company in Wollongong NSW) was instrumental in the adoption of 3D Printers to print
pre-op evaluation models of tumors, and crushed bones. We are very proud to have been there from the early stages of their research and see
their amazing adaptation of ultrasound, MRI and CAT scans into 3D models on the old Makerbot Replicator 1 what feels like an age ago.
We have not even discussed the increased assess to hearing aids, dentures and dental products, customized prosthetics, bone reconstructions
and other amazing advances in modern medicine made possible through 3D Printing.....this is really exciting and I can not wait to see the future.
Engineering and Design with a 3D Printer
Gone are the days where prototype and interactions took months due to slow and expensive prototype creation. We remember when the average time to see
a 3D model of your design took 3-6 months, only to discover your design did not actually fit perfectly with other components and needed changing...and
another 3-6 month wait!
Our friends at Ford (Australia) use their 3D printer as an intrinsic part of the design and development process. “I actually see additive as producing situations where you’re going to have higher-skilled positions that companies are going to need to fill, both on the technician level, and the engineering and design level,” Greg Morris, GE Aviation
Pathway to market : how 3D printing has made the impossible possible
Prior to 3D printing product manufacture and prototyping was slow and expensive. Know small business owners can produce small runs at low cost and release their product without high capital investment.
Case examples Bilby 3D actually is a case in point. Our electronics boxes, Spool stands, and even some repair parts are all 3D Printed. If we were to have to use traditional manufacturing
and injection mould these parts, well the truth is they probably would have never made it to market. 3D printing not only allowed small runs, but also constant re-iteration and
improvement to the designs.
Slydev are a small Australian company specialising in customised, small run products for Nerf guns and associated products.
They have also built up excellent Rapid Prototyping and small scale production services for other like-minded designers. 3D Printing is at the heart of their business model, an intrinsic part of their success.
3D Printing in Education : Changing art, design, history and science curricula
What are the chances of the average Australian student ever going to the Louvre in Paris and standing at the foot of the amazing Winged Victory of Samothrace
in awe of its 2.75m (9 feet) grey-white marble magnificence?
Or holding a TRex skull?
Or see a trilobite scuttle across the desk?
Yet all these things are now possible and tangible with 3D Printing!
