The Benefits of 3D Printing: Remote Production
At Sculpteo, we are convinced that 3D printing is changing the face of manufacturing, engineering and design in many ways. Today we tell you about how 3D printing enables Remote Production. What is remote production? How is it creating a new paradigm? How can it help your business? What are the challenges and questions that arise with it? Read the previous episodes of our Benefits of 3D printing here! Benefits of 3D... Read More
Who’s Behind the Three Main 3D Printing Technologies?
In 1980, rapid prototyping was born. From 1980 to 1988, many experiments were made and different 3D printing processes were created. But who were the men and women behind this incredible innovation? We can guess they perfectly knew they had created a revolutionary process. But maybe they didn’t know how it was gonna evolve and prompt profound transformation in the whole manufacturing world. Today, we invite you in a trip in the past,... Read More
How to design a 3D printed bike: Which material for which application?
Have you heard of our Sculpteo Bike Project? For CES 2017, we created the first ever fully functional digitally manufactured bike: 70% of its parts were produced by our 3D printing and laser cutting service. Then, to prove it was actually functional, the two designers of the bike, Piotr Widelka and Alexandre d’Orsetti, went on a long trip from Las Vegas to San Francisco, and rode the bike on over 1000 km! This trip was documented on... Read More

Our ambition is to give businesses the keys to understanding what’s at stake in the 3D printing industry. What is the State of 3D printing The report will set a comparison of how 3D printing permeates the different industries, an evaluation of the return... Read More
Try our 3D Printing Cost Comparator: 3D Printer or 3D Printing Service?
When 3D printing started gaining popularity, there was a common idea that, in the future, everybody would own their own 3D printer at home or for their company, and that remote production would be a thing of the past. This hasn’t happened yet, and, we believe, probably won’t happen anytime soon. The three main reasons are: It takes a high level of expertise to properly design for 3D printing and use a 3D printer A lot of products... Read More
Benefits of 3D Printing: Integrated Assembly
Since 19th Century Industrial Revolution, producing goods required heavy industry, machine tools, production line and economies of scale. In traditional manufacturing, infrastructures and time are mostly dedicated to assembly. The whole Ford system is based on an ‘assembly line’ and is seeking for ways to optimize assembly time. 3D printing is revolutionizing in that it is now possible to minimize assemblies and welding steps. In this... Read More
Meet Up on February 23rd! Carbon CLIP will be there!
