Project Summary

3Di helps bees fight against Varroa mites!

It was only a few months ago we were working on an exciting project that involved the welfare of elephants In India and now at the other end of the spectrum, Bees!

Stuart Roweth, the inventor of Bee Gym, approached 3Di to assist in development of his unique product.

The Bee Gym is a framework consisting of four different shaped devices, which bees can use to scrape off or injure Varroa mites or other parasites. With this device in the hive, there is no longer the need for chemical treatments that can be detrimental to the bees.


3Di created 3d CAD in Pro Engineer, which was then used to make the injection moulding tooling.

With the tooling made from 3Di’s CAD and specification, a trail run was started in 3Di’s injection moulding plant with great success.

3Di now manufacture and supply Stuart with the Bee Gym.

We wish Stuart all the best with his product and are grateful to be part of a project that has a positive effect on wildlife.
