Sculpteo & HP Sprout team up to make 3D Printing easier!
Today we’re proud to announce that all the Sculpteo features are directly accessible in one click from the computer, scanner and drafting surface of Sprout by HP. 3D printing has often been criticized for having a steep learning curve, used only by people skilled in CAD or willing to dedicate months to learn only the basics. This is an idea that we at Sculpteo have always fought, which is apparent when you use our platform; we... Read More
Friday Funday! Ice Cream and Mechanical Engineering
How much do you know about the effects of 3D printing on ‘Mechanical Engineering’? If you’re like most people it’s not something that you’re naturally interested in and that’s why I’m excited to share with you why it’s interesting and pretty fun as well. Let’s take a look. 3D printing has been leaking into unexpected areas for the last 10 years, these are areas such as food and fashion. Engineering and hardware manufacturing are areas... Read More
Sponsoring STEM Day For Girls!
It’s no mystery that women are underrepresented in activities, industries, and fields like: science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The 3D printing eco-system is yet another industry in technology that is struggling to get women on board. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women make up 47% of the total U.S. workforce, but comprise only 8.3% of electrical and electronic engineers, and 7.2% of... Read More
3D Printing resolution on Alumide: the complete Q&A
When looking at 3D printing an object with the benefit of the SLS 3D printing technology, there is more than regular plastic. One of the material offered by SLS 3D printing is called Alumide. It’s the perfect material to create stiff parts that need a metallic appearance, that are subject to low stress and that can resist high thermal loads. It makes it the perfect candidates to create part for prototyping and testing. Now what... Read More
Make beautiful 3D prints: understanding the layer thickness
Creating a successful 3D printed object first requires you to anticipate the outcome. Our material pages are there to help you understand your design’s constraints, and provide you with material datasheets, etc. The important question is how 3D printing will render the object and what will be the result. We have therefore created an object to help you see the end product created by 3D printing when using layer-by-layer construction.... Read More
