Optimization Tools: Batch Control

3D modeling softwares, Sketchup for example, offer a great flexibility when it comes to designing objects, but those objects aren’t always ready for a 3D print. Sometimes you need more than one of the same object, but not so many to justify a series of a couple hundred thousand. Luckily, Sculpteo offers an online optimization tool that allows you to duplicate the same object in one batch. Like all prints on […]Read More…
