The Artificial Intelligence for your 3D Printing Projects: Business Case
At the beginning of the year, we’ve announced at CES 2017 that we were launching a new DMLS and SLM online 3D Printing service, and, to go along with it, AMT (Agile Manufacturing Technology), a new software suite entirely dedicated to 3D Printing. The first tool of the AMT suite is Business Case, the first Artificial Intelligence for 3D Printing! In this article, you’ll find out everything about this tool, which helps you... Read More
Learn How to Fasten Laser Cut Metal Sheets Together Without Using Tools
You’re tempted to try our metal laser cutting service but you’re not sure how to create volumes with it? This article is here for you! Today, I’ll explain how to fasten laser cut metal sheets together without any tools, rivets, glue, or welding. This way, by creating 3D objects, laser cutting becomes a true alternative to 3D printing! This is the second article of our series on metal laser cutting: the first one explained how... Read More
Laser Cutting or Water Jet Cutting: Which is Best for Your Application?
When it comes to digital manufacturing cutting techniques, there are several options, that can each take the information from your 2D file in order to create your object directly. The two main ones are laser cutting and waterjet cutting. Today, we will compare those two techniques, and see which one fits which application best. How does laser cutting work? Laser cutting is a subtractive manufacturing technique that uses a focused... Read More

Read all the 3D printed alumide news, as well as a reminder on this 3D printing material’s characteristics, and available colors. New maximum sizes for 3D printed alumide When you design to 3D print in alumide, make sure you respect these maximum sizes: For raw 3D printed alumide: 315 x 240 x 190 mm. When raw,... Read More
3D Printing Companies :What are the Challenges of Running a 3D Printing Factory?
3D Printing is one of the key elements of the era of the factory of the future. 3D printing services make it possible for any person or business with a 3D file to virtually run their own 3D printing factory, distantly, and go from a file to an object, easily, at a moderated cost, and without the need to invest in machines and in their running, maintenance and update. But what goes on behind this apparent seamlessness? What happens... Read More
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
Multicolor 3D printing: How does Multi color 3D Printing 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
Women in 3D printing welcome Endeer, Syos and Plast’If
On Monday, we were at Paris Pionnières, the Parisian business incubator for female founders, for the first #3DTalk held in France! The event was organized by Women In 3D Printing, the organization created by Nora Toure, Business Developer at Sculpteo. It asked the question: “What does it mean to be a 3D printing entrepreneur?” to three young women entrepreneurs: Claire Chabaud, founder of Endeer, Pauline Eveno, founder of Syos, and... Read More
Tutorial: How to Fold Sheets of Metal in Steel and Aluminium Easily
We recently released our new metals for laser cutting: stainless steel, raw steel and aluminium. This service, directly available online, is a great tool to create mechanical parts, directly from your 2D file. But what if you want to create 3D objects with our laser cut metals? Well, you can! You just need to fold the laser cut metal sheets. And with the right design, it’s possible to do this by hand, without the need to invest in... Read More
The Clitoris Printed in 3D by Odile Fillod
Odile Fillod, French sociologist studying sciences and scientific vulgarization, recently 3D printed a clitoris, on-scale and anatomically correct. It was largely talked about because of its potential impact on education. Today, we take the opportunity of International Women’s Day (March 8th) to tell you about this object, its importance in building an exact sexual and anatomical education, and about how 3D printing can forward...
