5 things that you should not do with our 3D Printers
“Your imagination is the limit of 3D Printing” Have you ever read this before? Actually, that’s not entirely true… As for any technology, there are limits to 3D Printing and rules that you need to follow to use our 3D printers successfully. At Sculpteo, we are happy to 3D print every one of your creation but in some situations, we might have an internal conflict between pleasing you and making sure we can... Read More
Glass 3D Printer by MIT: an exclusive interview with Dr Pierre-Thomas Brun
MIT hosts some of the most prolific labs when it comes to 3D printing! It excels in various fields such as design, materials or 3D printer. Dr Pierre-Thomas Brun is a young French mathematician based at MIT and a member of the team that created the amazing molten glass 3D printer – which they call “viscous sewing machine“. He kindly accepted to answer to our questions. Dr Pierre-Thomas Brun is an Instructor in... Read More
Our Best Tips about Wall Thickness for 3D Printing

Staples and Sculpteo partner to launch new 3D printing offer
It’s been a while since we’ve heard stories about how 3D printing will change retail as we know it. Think of a shop in which you’ll be scanned from top to bottom, one where you’ll leave with made to order products. Building on their early success in 3D printing, the major office supplier, Staples Inc., just opened a new platform for anyone to discover professional quality 3D printing at fair market prices. Sculpteo is... Read More
These 3 softwares will help you to create lightweight structures
How to optimize a mechanical design for 3D Printing? This topic is crucial when you’re re-designing an existing part, whose shape is derived from manufacturing needs. In this case study, we explain how to use cool softwares to re-design a part with the same function, same performance but less material. 2 weeks ago, Jess mentioned in an article about 3D Printing and mechanical engineering how we redesigned a spare part for an old...

3D Printing & Aerospace: check out our staff picks!
Aerospace and 3D Printing are made for each other and NASA and European Space Agencies are demonstrating this almost every week. At Sculpteo we are proud to 3D-print for prestigious project like the Philae mission and produce some satellite parts for CNES. But there is also a lot of lovers of the stars among the Sculpteo folks. We asked them what’s their favorite story about Aerospace 3D Printing. Alvise likes the First espresso... Read More
Material can change shape with 4D Printing
3D Printing is already reshaping a large number of industries and no-doubt that all potential applications are not discovered yet. This doesn’t prevent the researchers to work on the next step: 4D Printing. Programmable materials are able to change shape without complex stimulation. Watch them in action. 4D Printing is developed by Self-assembly Lab, which is a cross-disciplinary research lab at MIT inventing self-assembly and... Read More
