At Sculpteo there’s more than meets the eye (or the site) when it comes to the materials we offer. There are a plethora of other materials that you can special order by contacting our sales team.
You’re likely familiar with the materials we already have available for automatic quoting on our website, but there are a couple others that you can get your hands on if you’re really in need (flexible resin for example). Whatever the project, big or small, send it along to our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you with a quote for the material you’ve requested.
Here’s a list of the other materials you can special order through Sculpteo:
- Objet Resin
- FDM Plastics
- Heavy Metals
Objet resins are a particular type of resins that come from Objet Printers. They work somewhat similarly to FDM printers in there is a material being extruded by a printer head, however the raw material for an objet resin is a UV sensitive polymer liquid. The printer head then contains a UV light which is able to vary depending on the desired flexibility of the object. That means an object could have both a hard and flexible portion from within the same print. Below are a couple examples of that material:
Flexible Resin (Objet TangoBlack):
Transparent Resin (Objet FullCure 720):
All resins from the Objet Vero family (8 types):
If you’re interested in an print in our objet resin, feel free to reach out to our sales team (email@example.com) — they’ll be able to sort out any questions you may have when it comes to 3D printing your project in any material.
FDM printing is a particular and extremely cheap manner of printing, we do have multiple FDM printers that we use in house for small time prototyping and amusement around the office. We don’t often advertise the service, however if you were really hankering for the particular finish that FDM printing provides in your manufactured good, our sales team would be sure to help you find the print that is right for you. Below is an example of what those prints could look like.
There is a process of 3D printing metals which is not extraordinarily dissimilar to SLS printing called DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering). These machines are extremely expensive to run, though we have access to a production set which we would be happy to get working on your heavy metal project. For inquiries on any of the following materials, feel free to reach out to our sales team. Below is an image of a DMLS printer hard at work.
- Stainless Steel
- Tool Steel
