Valoptim and Sculpteo: 3D printing architectural models for customers!

Posted By Lucie Gaget on Oct 10, 2018 | 0 comments

3D printing is well used for architecture. We can see that 3D printed houses are becoming a reality and that 3D printing could become a common manufacturing technique in architecture. Additive manufacturing can also be used for other application in this sector, and that is precisely what we can see with, Valoptim, a property development company which decided to work with us to 3D print architectural models.

Creating architectural models to improve customer experience

Additive manufacturing can actually be used on different levels and for various projects. 3D printing allows developing projects that are highly customizable and Valoptim decided to make the most of this 3D technology. This manufacturing technique can be used to create models of houses or flats. This is the project developed by Valoptim, a property development company!

Indeed, Valoptim decided to offer 3D mock-ups to their customer when buying a new flat. This way, future owners get an accurate model of their home, in order to materialize the new flat they purchased.

This project is actually a great technique to improve the customers’ relationship. It is a good way for them to plan their lives in this future home. By choosing our online 3D printing service, Valoptim has a “made in France” project!

“Sculpteo is using the best machines and 3D printing processes on the market.” states Edouard Pellerin, CEO at Valoptim “In the beginning, we just wanted to see what was possible using 3D printing in our sector. This innovative process turned out to be really interesting for us: architectural models are realistic, with a qualitative accuracy in finishes. It is allowing our customer to discover a small version of their future flat so they can plan their move-in easily. This innovation contributes to our dynamic will to improve the customer experience inside our company”


3D printing could be the best 3D printing technique for your project   

At Sculpteo, we are offering a wide range of 3D printing materials and finishes allowing our customer to make the most of the 3D printing technology such as Valoptim did. Additive manufacturing is perfect for these kinds of projects. These French property developers needed a customizable and small-volume production technique.

Clément Moreau, CEO, and co-founder of Sculpteo explains: “The agility, the quality and the accuracy offered by these new technologies are real assets for people buying flats in construction. It is an opportunity to visualize the flat before moving in.

Thanks to our qualitative catalog, they easily 3D printed their projects. But this technology can also be used in many different sectors such as fashion, automobile or in the medical sector.

The 3D technology: A great asset for architecture


The 3D technology can be used for visualization, simulation, prototyping or even production. We can say that 3D is definitively a great asset for real-estate and architecture. By using 3D modeling software for architecture, it is possible to get a better visualization of a project and to try new ideas. It is even used to develop immersive visits using virtual reality!

At Sculpteo, online 3D printing service, we can see that the 3D printing technology is more and more used for architecture projects. We saw told about one of them recently on our blog, with the example of Gaëtan Le Penhuel & Associés, 3D printing architectural models in a short lead time and at a reasonable price.

If 3D printing for architecture is a great asset for prototyping and architectural models, it is also used for production. Indeed, additive manufacturing is starting to be used to 3D print real houses and architectural structures. This technology is really promising for the future of architecture.


Additive manufacturing was a great asset to the construction sector. Now, property developers such as Valoptim can easily use this technology in order to improve their customer experience and allow the customer to be prepared for their new home!
