When is 3D Printing the best solution for production?
3D printing, also called additive manufacturing, is the process of using specialized equipment to assemble, via a computer and a 3D model, an object layer by layer. It has some unique and interesting advantages over traditional manufacturing. First, additive manufacturing allows production costs to stay the same rather there are one or a thousand units. This has several implications: it makes production available to small businesses... Read More
Express Production: we received an A+

3D Printing with Carbon Rigid Polyurethane resin : the complete Q&A
Over the past 10 weeks, we’ve had the opportunity to use the new Carbon3D M1 digital light projector (DLP) resin-based 3D printer. Not only is the M1 printer the fastest in its category (stereolithography (SLA) printers), it also is compatible with a wide range of materials. In this blog series, 3D printing engineer Chris Lau, our M1 specialist, will share his expertise on the Carbon 3D M1 resins. This first article will focus... Read More
Introducing the Smoothing Beautifier: a new standard for high-quality 3D printed parts
After a long period of research, the Sculpteo team has developed a brand new patent pending process to smooth laser sintered plastics. You can get prototypes that look like the finished product and small series that truly have a high-quality surface finish. We’re super excited to introduce our latest finishing option: the Smoothing Beautifier! Many of you have given us feedback on the quality surface of the laser sintered parts.... Read More
The 3D Printing Questions Accelerators & Incubators should ask
There are many accelerators and incubators out there. It’s a growing trend and for each niche market, you can be sure you’ll find just the one you need. Over a series of different posts, we covered the “accelerator” question under different angles. We covered the “19 Best Hardware Accelerators to Launch your Biz”. We wrote on “how you should choose your hardware incubator”. We built partnerships with different places both in San... Read More
State of 3d Printing 2016 : Hobbyists
As we have stated in our first blog post concerning our second edition of the State of 3d Printing, our survey reached around 1,000 engineers and design professionals at virtually all levels, across all industries, and around the world. Out of this thousands of respondents, around 300 respondents have stated that they were hobbyists. As we wanted to know a little bit more about them, we thought about dedicating a whole blog post just... Read More
State of 3d Printing 2016: first results about our methodology and the sample
Sculpteo State of 3D Printing surveyed nearly 1,000 engineers and design professionals at virtually all levels, across all industries, and around the world. We asked what they do, why they do it, how they do it, and if it’s working. The State of 3D Printing report breaks it all down. We will cover the main results in a series of posts. The first one is dedicated to our methodology and the samples. What is the ROI of 3D... Read More
