Sculpteo is very much concerned with your projects and the amount of money you have to invest when 3D Printing. Additive manufacturing has a lot of advantages, including a lower price than traditional manufacturing, especially if you’re planning to 3D print small batches or do some rapid prototyping. But it is a perfect solution for any project, from solid objects to complex shapes, everything is 3D printable. On our online 3D printing service, we elaborated some special tools for you to reduce your 3D Printing costs. This article gives you the keys to make the most of our service with a cost-reducing objective.
1. Hollowing tool
Our Batch Control tool optimizes the space inside of our 3D printers and time of printing in order to decrease the final price of your series.
