3D Printing Materials: Our Focus on Material Simulation.
Among the wide range of 3D printing materials that our online 3D printing service offers, you might not know which one to choose for your application, or have a clear idea of the properties of each one. Of course, you can always refer to our material pages, technical specifications, etc. But it can help also to have a comparison of unfamiliar 3D printing materials with more familiar materials that you encounter in your everyday life...

3D Printed Screws & Threads: Which 3D Printing Material, Which Design?
No matter what’s your 3D printing application, you might at some point need to attach two parts together thanks to screws, whether you want your object to be easy to put together, or you want it to fit into another pre-existing object. Because 3D printing is the champion of integrated assembly, it is tempting to design the screws and threads directly into your 3D printed object. Today, we’ll answer the questions: Should you 3D print... Read More
Design guidelines for Metal Laser Cutting
We recently launched our new metal laser cutting offer. Online metal laser cutting is an easy, fast, and high-quality way to create your mechanical and aesthetic parts, but, to make the most of it, it is important to apply some essential design rules. Today, we share with you those design rules, as well as some information about how metal laser cutting works, that will help you understand the reasons behind the design rules. ... Read More
Multicolor 3D printing: How does it Work and What Is It For?
What are the options to 3D print in colors? Of course, you can paint a monochrome part created with SLS (Selective Laser Sintering), SLA (Stereolithography) or another technology. You can also use a multi-nozzles FDM (Fused Desposition Modeling) 3D printer to have several separated colors directly in your 3D print. Or you can 3D print directly in multicolor, directly in the 3D printer, with pretty much as many colors options as you... Read More
