How 3D printing impacts the medical industry
The singularity of the Healthcare industry is that it has to adapt with a very accurate specificity to every patient. The resources used for surgeries or to treat the patient are often customized, expensive and limited. Those constraints are very adapted to the use of 3D printing technology which prints a unique piece, fully customized and at an affordable cost. In this way, 3D printing use was quickly on the rise in this industry.... Read More
Discover 7 of the coolest metal 3D printing applications!
Metal 3D printing is a very promising technology, creating great opportunities for many industries. Using this manufacturing technique, you can produce fully functioning 3D printed parts with great mechanical properties. At Sculpteo, we strongly believe this is a real game-changing technology, and so do our customers. In our 2017 study dedicated to 3D printing, metals ranked as the third most used kind of materials. But what can you... Read More
Hydroprinting, a Breakthrough Innovation to Print Conductive Patterns.
3D printing has been used broadly in the electronics industry for everything that goes around electronic components. In past few years, production of 3D structures with conductive features attracted the attention of many researchers, especially in the field of Internet of Things (IoT). In this blog post, you will discover what researchers have developed despite the difficulties to produce this kind of structures with the regular 3D... Read More
Mat(t)isse: 3D Printing for Breast Reconstruction
Mat(t)isse developed a new technique for breast reconstruction, which uses lace and a 3D printed shell. This very innovative technique allows to personalize the implant and to avoid undergoing multiple surgeries. We had a talk with Julien Payen, co-founder of the project, about their path, their uses of 3D printing, and the implications of this new method, which are numerous and offer many benefits for women in need of breast...

Additive Manufacturing with Carbon and Sculpteo
This news was originally published by Carbon. We’re very proud to be part of this project, helping produce board alignment brackets, delivered in days instead of months for other technologies. (Photo credit: Carbon) Additive Manufacturing is no longer just for prototyping. With Carbon, Oracle was able to design and print an extremely precise bracket hardly an inch in size, enabling a 3D-printed production volume... 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
Our guide Industrial applications of 3D printing
3D Printing is creating new opportunities in a wide range of sectors, enabling easier prototyping processes, renewed approaches of the production line (remote production, cheaper small batch production, reduced tooling and machine costs, use of online 3D printing services…), and designs that were impossible before. We’ve been writing about 3D printing and the advantages it brings to various industries on this blog, and today we give... 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...

The history of 3d printer: from rapid prototyping to additive fabication
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
