Sculpteo Blog - 3D Printing News and Trends


At the beginning of 2015, we decided to launch a new survey in order to gather more precise data on how 3D printing is used and of course to learn more about what our users are looking for. We didn’t expect such a huge success. Our survey was answered 1100 times and the State of 3D printing’s first edition report downloaded more than 10 000 times.  With no surprises, we are turning to our readers, users and community once again...

Human beings have always been fascinated with robotics, and it has been the basis of many science fiction movies. It seems to have recently recaptured the imaginations of the greatest fiction directors, and who knows, maybe in 10 years there will be humanoids as realistic as the “replicants” in Blade Runner. Robotic technology is growing The world of robotics is exploding, and Google’s December 13 purchase of Boston Dynamics seems to...

2015 was a paradoxical year for the fashion industry and 3D printing. Indeed, this year is a mix between disruptive applications (pushing the boundaries of 3D printing one step beyond ) and in the meantime the use of 3D printed  accessory became a commonplace. The future of 3D Printing in fashion industry is even written : sur-mesure and dematerialization are the ultimate challenges. But we should keep it in mind as a dream in 2016....

4D Printing is a term that seems to appear more and more these days. It is used to designate a technology which allows the manufacturing (with 3D printing) of objects that will change their shape after they have been produced. Often the shape changes because its own environment is transforming; like being being immersed in water or by bringing the temperature down. This is not fresh news as such, since we already talked about this in...

Every industry is impacted by additive manufacturing. Over the past 10 years, additive manufacturing (AM) technologies have radically changed our way to design, develop and manufacture new things. In the automotive industry, those technologies have made wonders to bring new shapes to life, allowing for lighter and more complex structures at the best possible cost. While it remains true that 3D printing is still mainly used for rapid...
