How to reduce the price of your 3D prints The price of your 3D print depends on many factors: the material you choose, the volume the object occupies, the amount of used material and the finishings, to name a few. Sculpteo designed two simple features especially for you, to better fit your budget. This post will help you to better understand the tools you have at your disposal to pay less for your 3D prints.
Big things occasionally come in small packages. Earlier this month we blogged about Spor, a pocket-sized solar charger in a 3D-printed case, but there are plenty of other Kickstarter campaigns that bring innovative 3D printing technologies into reality. If you have a passing interest in 3D printing, then you’ve most certainly read about the smallest 3D printing pen in the world, LIX .
When 3D printing objects, sometimes the size of the object matters, and sometimes it doesn’t. Shrinkage can be a major issue.
A new Android app permits children (and adults) to create 3D robot models suitable for 3D printing with an unusual approach.
Ask someone to think of a 3D-printed object, and chances are they’ll picture something hard … or perhaps rubbery . Thanks to new technology developed by Carnegie Mellon University and Disney Research Pittsburgh, however, it’s now possible to make soft and fuzzy 3D-printed items, using yarn instead of plastic or resin. Among the first items to be created were little felt teddy bears
ZooM is a classic 3D printed lampshade: probably a perfect match for your dining room. But if you order it from our online shop, you will receive a box with a 3D printed flat pentagon inside
There’s a gallery of images available that demonstrate the process of lost-PLA casting to create a metal object using 3D printing. Let’s first explain the “lost-PLA” process. The idea is to do the following:
Like most of you, we like to watch 3D prints happen. There’s something magical about seeing a real object appear out of, apparently, thin air.
A Creative Tradition Meets 3D Printing The ability to print 3D models has inspired everyone artists, engineers, and even kids to explore new dimensions of expression. And it’s no wonder we want to paint them too.
