Welcome to the advanced digital maker group.

admg is a specialist IT consultancy, set up to bring the latest from the world of 3D printing and ‘maker’ technology to your business, projects in art and industry.

We couple an extensive understanding of the 3D printing industry with a love of prototyping complex systems using basic open source building blocks as found in many ‘Maker’ projects, such as Arduino microcontrollers, Raspberry Pi computers and other powerful low, cost electronics.  Our quick fix solutions have seen active service in high uptime environments such as Sky’s broadcast chain!

If you have an idea, we can help make it real.
