Understanding our 60µm layer thickness printing setting
As a 3D printing service, we have our mind set on two things: offering you the widest control over our machines and bringing you innovative finishes to your 3D prints. That’s why, a few weeks ago, we launched a new printing resolution for our plastic material. Once a week, we dedicate one of our SLS printers to all orders with a 60µm layer thickness. After 8 weeks of trial and error, here are our first guidelines to better... Read More
How to choose the right material for your 3D prints?
3D printing is not a unique process with just one material or one technology. In fact, when you’re looking for a 3D printed part, you can choose between many solutions and this choice will largely impact the outcome. Depending on where you are in the development lifecycle of your product, choosing the best material can be the key to your project’s success. Let us guide you through the process of picking the right material when you... Read More

3D Printing Resolution on Multicolor Prints: the complete Q&A
Being able to construct an object through 3D printing—directly in color to boot—is a very enticing prospect. To achieve this, some 3D printer manufacturers have developed technologies that allow color to be added directly during the 3D printing process. Objects created through this process serve as mock-ups or are ornamental in nature, owing to their mechanical weaknesses. This is characteristic of this new technology, which is... Read More

Which texture resolution for your multicolor 3D prints?
This is a pretty usual situation. You have a 3D file with textures and you want to 3D print it in our multicolor material. It’s reasonnable to aim for the best possible print and therefore use the highest possible resolution for your texture. That’s WHAT anyone would do. However, we’ve run a cool test to really see how the texture resolution impacts a 3D print’s quality. We took a 3D scan made with an Artec Eva... Read More
