Optimization Tools


In order to 3D print or to use a 3D printing service, there is one essential thing that you need: a 3D file. You can either design one yourself or find one online. But the files you find might not always correspond exactly to your needs. It might lack some features, have too many elements in it that you don’t need, or even be damaged. Thus, you will need to edit it. How to do so for your STL files? That’s the question we already tried...

You got an STL file and you’re ready to 3D print? In this article we’re focusing on how to repair or edit an STL file to make it printable. At Sculpteo, we have developed a free 3D viewer and superior repairing tools (with 99% of rate of success!) and we’ll explain to you how you can use our website to edit and repair your STL files.   1.What is an STL file? STL (STereoLithography) is a 3D printing file format used to store the...

Hi, Alex here, Sculpteo’s UX designer, with another update, this time to order tracking. We pride ourselves on being the fastest online 3D printing service, but we know that even a few minutes of the unknown feels like forever. That’s why we’ve opened up our production line, letting you see an ultra-detailed, real-time and clear breakdown of your order at each step of its production from beginning to end. How we designed our order...

The strength of a 3D printing part is driven by two aspects: its material and its design. Among the many 3D printing materials we offer on our online 3D printing service, you can choose technical ones like metals, polyamide or glass-filled nylon. However, the strongest material is easily breakable with a poor design. Thanks to the freedom of design offered by 3D printing, you can create precise structural patterns that give your...

3D modeling is, along with 3D scanning, the most used method to obtain an STL for your 3D print. In industrial sectors, designers are using CAD design to prototype, iterate and obtain manufacturable parts. Parametric modeling allows the creation of complex geometries for 3D printing with high precision and possibilities of modification in the design process.     Types of design processes CAD design is the most common way to...

When designing for 3D printing, many components have to be taken into account in order to obtain a proper 3D printed object. Shape, stress, loads, mass are the main things to consider before starting to print. The topology optimization is one of the calculation methods that help you to obtain optimized CAD models before uploading it on our 3D printing service.   What is the Topology Optimization? It is a technique that optimizes...

In 3D printing, one small fact needs to be taken into an account: not all 3D files are printable. How can it be possible? The software that most people use is directly programmed to export the 3D file without analyzing the closed volume to 3D print which is why your 3D file often cannot be printed. At Sculpteo, we created repairing tools with multiple algorithms that will analyze and automatically repair your 3D files as soon as they...

Our main mission as digital manufacturing service is not only to provide the best 3D printing and laser cutting service, materials quality but also to make 3D printing accessible to everyone. That’s why we do our best to enable you to manage your 3D file directly from our online interface without returning to the 3D modeling software. Today we explain one of the sets of online optimization tools we have created to help you improve...

To make a 3D print, you need a 3D file, but to get it you don’t need to be an expert or have a significant budget; you can download 3D files from dedicated marketplaces or try to create it by yourself using 3D CAD & Modeling software. One of the main advantages of free modeling software is that they are often more intuitive than professional software, and are user-friendly for all experience levels. Today we are going to give you...
