It’s the end of August! No reason to be sad though, because we’ve planned lots of events for next month! Before September kicks off, this is our ultimate friday pick list! We already told you about Joaquin Baldwin last week! But the designs he added in between are simply amazing and we wanted to display them this week also. Joaquin created the skeleton of a skeletal Lepidoptera. The Death’s Head Hawkmoth (Acherontia...Read More
Busy month for Sculpteo in September! Meetups, Inside 3D Printing, World Maker Faire, Designer’s Night…
We’ve been busy all summer planning different worldwide events for September. The list is quite long, and if you’re in the US, in France or in the UK, you have a shot at meeting us to discuss your 3D printing projects! In France: September events are starting for us with a joint Meetup. Clément Moreau, our CEO, will be speaking during the third Paris Tech Talks Meetup at Deezer HQ in Paris. The event...Read More
We’re launching two new materials: Silver and Wax!
After a full summer of extensive in-house testing, we are happy to announce that you now can order your design in Silver and Wax! During the summer we learned everything there is to know about those two new materials, and we have to say the results are amazing! We’ve integrated the new materials directly to our online quotation tools. If you want to order a print with these new materials, the process stays exactly the same. You...Read More
If you’re a Minecraft player, chances are that you want to hold a 3D print of your skin in our own hands. Until now it was possible to order different characters “Chibis” from an active group of Minecraft player through the store of one of them. Maruku’s shop is hosting different models of Chibis with different skins. If you’re not familiar with Maruku’s crew on Minecraft, there still is a solution...Read More
Summer is winding down, but it’s no reason to feel bad about it. There are still plenty of nice sunny days to come and also plenty of 3D printing projects to imagine. In the meantime, just to relax before the weekend, you should take a look a our friday pick list. Joaquin Baldwin‘s store is a treasure when it comes to find beautiful designs. He has created lots of models, but our favorite one is probably the reproduction...Read More
NASA shows 3D printing in Zero-Gravity
We already published a post about NASA’s big plans to integrate 3D printing in the International Space Station. Made in Space is the startup behind the project, and together with the NASA, they published a video about 3D printing in zero-gravity conditions. The 3D printing experience in Zero-Gravity was a success, and Made in Space also announced that the machine can survive the rigors of launch and function in a microgravity...Read More
The 3D printed robot that moves on power lines.
Robots are a huge theme when it comes to 3D printing. Makers are fond of drones, or even Terminator-like robot with 3D printed parts, but we often forget that some robots can be quite simple and don’t necessarily need to look like humans. This is anyway the bet of Nich Morozovsky, mechanical engineering graduate student at University of California San Diego, who designed a robot that can moves on power lines to look for damages...Read More
All shipping fees at 6.50$ for the USA and Canada until the last day of August!
It’s summer and since we will be present at the Inside 3D printing in San Jose and at the World Maker Faire in New York, we figure that north Americans deserve a little something to take on their 3D printing projects. Until the 31st of August, we will only charge 6.50$ for every shipment to the US or Canada. In other words, one price fits them all. No matter the size and weight of your print. Now don’t hesitate to get in...Read More
Another week comes to an end. But it’s not a sad news, on the contrary! It’s time to discover our friday pick list with some awesome 3D printed objects. We’re fond of this particular “implicit” spinning-top ring. It takes a little while to catch the the right way to “launch” it, but once you got it, it’s pretty fun to watch. We’ve printed in our blue plastic material, but...Read More
Lots of us have heard about projects that aim to print houses for humans, but what about animals. Lately, we’ve seen lots of projects aiming to 3D print houses for humans, but what about making shelter for animals? And not just any animals, but tiny little 6-legged ones. This has been the project of Aki Inomata. The japanese artist has in deed decided to 3D printed shells for hermit crabs. Since hermit crabs have to move to...Read More
