New Figurine Workshop under Construction. Stay Tuned!

You might have noticed it already but our figurine workshop is under construction. We are preparing some great changes to our customised figurines service. It will be easier to use, more efficient and even more cool. Stay tuned for the launch!

While we are working on improving the figurine workshop, why not try another workshop? We have plenty of great customisation tools ready for you.

You could for example create a custom case for your iPhone, get a silver medal from your profile picture or get your favorite image 3D printed in 3D! And that’s just a few examples. We have much more workshops available.

Our goal: make it fun and easy to use for everyone. You should give it a try!

Minecraft 3D Printed Model by Sculpteo Goes to Somerville Maker Faire

He is the creator of Mineways, a free program that lets you select a model from your Minecraft world and have it 3D printed by Sculpteo.com and others.

On his booth, Eric presented great 3D printings made with Mineways. One of them was the very beautiful Solamar designed by Sterling Babcock. We are proud that he chose us for 3D printing his creation. We told you about this model a few weeks ago. It is a very demanding piece, which includes many small details and colors.

We 3D printed it using our Multicolor material. 16 million colors available, printed in 0.1mm layers with a fine mineral powder. After the printing, we inject cyanoacrylate glue into the object. It becomes hard as porcelain.

Here is what Eric told us about kids’ reactions when they visited the booth and discovered the printings:

“It was very popular! Kids loved looking at all the details and taking it apart.”
