Solidity Check 2.0

Solidity Check 2.0


When it comes to 3D printing, you can never be too careful when checking the different characteristics of your 3D file. Closed volumes? Check. Wall thickness? Check. Size of the embossed details? Check. If you want a full list of all the things you should double check to ensure a quality 3D print, head over to our materials pages. Now if you feel like it’s your online 3D Printing Service’s job to do all those things for you, our...

The Thickening Tool – How it Works

The Thickening Tool – How it Works


You may remember that last week we released the Thickening Tool. It allows anyone to turn their 3D model into a printable file with just a click. But how does the technology work? Read on to find out. Sculpteo’s Thickening Tool uses a system of complex geometric algorithms to complete its process. However, for a more poetic explanation: the object does not grow, it reforms. What is the difference? Well, if a 3D model were to...

3D Printing or Plastic Injection : our guide to cost efficiency


It’s out! We’re happy to announce the launching of our Guide to Cost Efficiency through Short Series Manufacturing. There’s no need to prove how useful 3D Printing is for Rapid Prototyping. Or even to create customized objects. However, the advantages that the technology presents can go far beyond that. Advancements in pricing and online technologies (specifically Sculpteo’s Batch Control tool) have opened the world of 3D...

Price Optimization With the Multipart Upload

Price Optimization With the Multipart Upload


The new Multipart Tool, has been live on our since last week. It allows you to separate the multiple volumes in your 3D file into separate 3D prints! This article will explain how to optimize your multipart files for a 3D print. A multipart file (as we define it) is a 3D file with multiple, separate volumes. After that type of file is uploaded, you are taken to the following screen: Here you are given the option to choose either...

Introducing “Multipart” : simplifying upload for multipart 3D files


To give you the best online personal 3D printing center, we’re always bringing new tools to our online interface. After the Repair Tool, Solidity Check, Cut-Away View, Batch Control for short series, Hollowing to hollow your 3D model, we’re introducing “Multipart” to easily 3D print a file that contains more than just one part. Whether you want to 3D print an object with moving parts or an object that requires...
