The simple answer to your question is – excellent and use them!

"The simple answer to your question is – excellent and use them! We have been working with HOBS for a number of years and specifically their 3D team over the past 4 years. I have always found them very professional, attentive to every detail, always offering new ideas and solutions even when we are unsure what we want! They have provided us with 3D printed models, AR products and VR products all of which have been both excellent value and very high quality. I would say that the VR model and immersive experience they developed for us inside the F35 fighter jet hanger and workshop that we are delivering for the RAF and USAF was exceptional. The level of service we received from the HOBS 3D team in London to develop, produce and then commission and test was again excellent and the feedback was so much more than expected. They have also produced a VR model and impressive experience for the new Dreadnaught submarine facility in Barrow and this has been used by the MOD and Navy Command to review the proposed facility, review security concerns and engage local stakeholders including the Planning Committees. Again the support from HOBS 3D to develop the model, features, functionality and the hardware to use the VR was excellent and they held our hand all the way. You don’t need to be a 3D ninja to work with this team they worry about all of that for you and keep it simple to understand and use. Regarding cost we found them very competitive and never felt we over paid and they under performed. Project Management and keeping us informed with progress was excellent and if we did have any concerns then they were sorted immediately."
