MIT introduces 3D printing with glass
When it comes to 3D printing, all eyes are directed to the machine performances and the development of new materials. It’s just the way it is, and we understand why. The more you can do with 3D printing the more people will see it a a viable way to produce objects in their everyday life. That being said, some materials are not that easy to print. For instance, glass was a tough one to reach. Until now. Last Friday, researchers... Read More
Fashion industry & 3D printing: Exclusive interview of Danit Peleg, Interlaced’s founder & Electroloom’s team
Danit Peleg. Interlaced. Electroloom. These three names are building the foundations of the fashion industry’s future. Their uses of 3D printing has known a viral success, but beyond that, from a professional point of view it’s their vision that matters. They re-think the manufacturing process of fashion, develop a new way to foster the outbreak of the next generation fabric and create a 3D printed textile which broaden our... Read More
3D Printing Uses: Mass Customization
Last week, I went in length about the different reasons why you should consider additive manufacturing for production. I gave many reasons among which the most controversial is probably that it’s not easy to find the right manufacturer and that factories are not always willing to take your orders. 3D printing on the contrary is offering a solution with no upfront costs. I also stated that there are in fact four “product categories”... Read More
Sculpteo & HP Sprout team up to make 3D Printing easier!
Today we’re proud to announce that all the Sculpteo features are directly accessible in one click from the computer, scanner and drafting surface of Sprout by HP. 3D printing has often been criticized for having a steep learning curve, used only by people skilled in CAD or willing to dedicate months to learn only the basics. This is an idea that we at Sculpteo have always fought, which is apparent when you use our platform; we... Read More
Looking for the best 3D printing marketplace ?
Are you curious about 3D printing but lack the skills and time to design your idea? This is not an issue anymore. Thousands of designers and users gather together on 3D printing marketplaces to share and sell their designs. It’s good way to enjoy 3D printing without having to experience design issues. Different kinds of 3D printing marketplaces are defined by people using them 3D printing services companies, like... Read More
3D printing uses: Production with 3D printing
With raw materials often 10 to 50 times more expensive than traditional manufacturing, 3D printing has been often presented as a manufacturing technology suited for small quantities only (and therefore particularly adapted for prototyping). This was particularly true until a few years ago, 3D printing technologies are now shifting toward more usability because of their recent development in terms of speed, quality and cost. It means...

Material can change shape with 4D Printing
3D Printing is already reshaping a large number of industries and no-doubt that all potential applications are not discovered yet. This doesn’t prevent the researchers to work on the next step: 4D Printing. Programmable materials are able to change shape without complex stimulation. Watch them in action. 4D Printing is developed by Self-assembly Lab, which is a cross-disciplinary research lab at MIT inventing self-assembly and... Read More
Future Materials for 3D Printing
3D Printing has grown rapidly and it’s gaining popularity in areas like fashion, aeronautics, and medicine; thanks to innovative new materials we see this technology being used for wildly different purposes. The future of new 3D printing materials will drive this technology to new horizons. With half of 2015 behind us, it’s only natural to think about the future of 3D printing materials. Many large companies have invested... Read More
Sculpteo Success Story: Backbone by Tunuva
Today’s Sculpteo Success Story features Quentin Bowden of Tunuva and he talks with us about how Sculpteo helped him create a product called ‘Backbone’ for your iPhone. Quentin can you tell us more about what Tunuva is, and also about what ‘Backbone’ does? Sure! So Tunuva started out as a 3d printing services company but it has since changed over into a product design company, and about a year ago we had... Read More
