Sculpteo Tools: Repair your 3D files with Sculpteo


3D Printing works with 3D files. That’s stating the obvious. However every 3D file is not printable in 3D. Some software is directly programed to export printable 3D files without having to know tricks to make closed volumes, but most of the software out there isn’t particularly “user-friendly” when it comes to creating a printable 3D file. Any error on the file would make it non-printable. To help you with...

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 Sculpteo the process begins...
