In our previous blogposts, we explained how to create your own spur gear thanks to Sculpteo laser cutting service and to our 3D printing service. We now explain how to choose wisely between both technologies and how to succeed with each one. I. How to drive a Gear There are two ways of transmitting the movement from one gear to another. A.Meshing gears When thinking about gears, the first image that comes to mind is two meshing gears....

In order to 3D print or to use a 3D printing service, there is one essential thing that you need: a 3D file. You can either design one yourself or find one online. But the files you find might not always correspond exactly to your needs. It might lack some features, have too many elements in it that you don’t need, or even be damaged. Thus, you will need to edit it. How to do so for your STL files? That’s the question we already tried...

When designing a technical piece, you need to know the properties of the material you are going to use in order to know how it will behave, and to prevent any ruptures or breaks. Several physical entities can be used to do so, and the most common ones are Young’s modulus and ultimate strength. These characteristics are often given by raw material providers, however they heavily depend on the production process you are going to use....

3D printing is still considered as a limited manufacturing tool as it is time-consuming, has limited materials and the technique is not yet adaptable to large-scale manufacturing. The MIT Self-Assembly Lab, Steelcase, and well-known product designer, Christophe Guberan challenge those 3D printing issues using the new process of Rapid Liquid Printing. This new technology allows to produce customized furniture and to 3D print at a large...
