Sculpteo not only provides one of the most elite 3D printing services on the market today, we also have a wide berth of expertise that we love to share. So if you’re looking for some light reading on the 3D happenings of the day check out our eBook Collection! To date Sculpteo has released three eBooks (listed below), this article will give you a quick summary of each – but for the complete thing go ahead and click on it directly! Go The 4 Areas Where 3D Printing Is Unstoppable Fix your Files for 3D Printing Design Guidelines for 3D Printing 3D Printing vs Injection Molding Top 20 3D Printing Stories of 2014 Our brand-new guide Go The 4 Areas Where 3D Printing Is Unstoppable introduces you to the most attractive feature of 3D printing such as the ability to create shapes and objects that cannot be achieved otherwise. In this eBook you will see 18 examples of products and research projects from the 4 categories below: complex geometries, mass customization, integrated assembly and engineering redesign
Strata Design 3D is a 3D modeling software that is renowned for being easy to use by every day designers while providing professional quality and photoreal results.
3D printing is fascinating. It still seems wild to me that you can download schematics for anything and have a plastic version of a physical object in your home a short while later.
Being able to construct an object through 3D printing—directly in color to boot—is a very enticing prospect. To achieve this, some 3D printer manufacturers have developed technologies that allow color to be added directly during the 3D printing process
If you’re interested in 3D printing and our manufacturing methods, you probably know about the most widely used 3D printing materials. Those include polyamide, resin, alumide, multicolor and some metals. However, these materials are just the tip of the iceburg, 3D printing has many other hidden surprises
When it comes to 3D printing, NASA has always been a forerunner. Not only are they using the first 3D printer in space to print tools and spare parts on the International Space Station (ISS), but they also manage to actively include their community in their projects. In this post, we review NASA’s contribution to the field of 3D printing and take a look at their 3D model database and show you how it can be used to create 3D prints
Since each printing material and 3D model is different, choosing the right wall thickness can be confusing. Yet, keeping these simple tips in mind will ensure that you won’t receive an unpleasant surprise and the walls of your object will have just the thickness they need
How do you take into account thermal shrinkage and printing resolution when you’re designing your 3D model? Matthew, process engineer at Sculpteo, explains the process in detail and give tips for your mechanical parts.
This blog post is reprinted from Public Knowledge, and is quite timely. On Thursday of this week, we'll be discussing this very topic at our Copia Inaugural Summit , with Natalia Krasnodebska from Shapeways. We'll also be distributing copies of this new report at the event
This past CES we released one of our most innovative tools to date – 3D Print Dossier & FinalProof. When used effectively, it is one of the most powerful tools in Sculpteo’s arsenal of free online functions. What are some of the other free online functions?
