How a CT scan and Additive Manufacturing improve the aerospace industry?
We already had a few examples of how 3D printing is used in the aerospace industry. In a previous blog post, we talked about 3D printing with moon dust and 3D printed parts on airplanes. Now it’s time to have a closer look at how Additive Manufacturi... Read More
How about 3D printing with moon dust?
It’s been a while since the Apollo Program and Neil Armstrong’s words ”that’s one small step of a man, one giant leap for mankind” echoed on the radios. But, the aerospace industry doesn’t sleep. Next step: lunar and planetary colonization. We alread... Read More
Medical 3D printing: How Additive Manufacturing can help treatment testing
Additive Manufacturing has been used for medical purposes for a while. We already talked about 3D printed synthetic skin and organs. But there are plenty of other opportunities for 3D printing to not only improve our lives but even save them! In this... Read More
3D printing spare parts: What are the advantages for your company?
3D printing opens many possibilities for companies and including additive manufacturing technology in a production process has a lot of benefits. Whether for rapid prototyping or production, all sectors can use this cutting-edge technology. Indeed, w... Read More
The software tools you need to use before 3D printing
Do you want to use 3D printing? If your answer is “yes”, you will first have to create a 3D model. To make this 3D model, you will have to use CAD software and/or 3D tools in order to make sure that your file is actually 3D printable. These programs ... Read More

Breaking news in conductive 3D printing: the Bionic Mushroom
Conductive 3D printing might seem like old news, as we already talked about how it can help to build electronic devices and electrical circuits in the future. We also wrote about hydroprinting and even MIT’s invention of using colloids for Additive... Read More
Your next flight will be with 3D printed engine parts!
Additive Manufacturing is becoming commonly used in many industries and aerospace is no different. We already talked about 3D printed rocket engines and Siemens’ turbine blades. Now it’s time to talk about Airbus again. Clearly, this Aerospace gi... Read More
What are smart materials?
We hear more and more from new experiments made using 4D printing. The 4D printing technology is using the same printing process than 3D printing, the difference between these two manufacturing techniques is the material: the use of what we call smar... Read More
Discover more about 3D printing and digital manufacturing with our blog
Sculpteo is a digital manufacturing service that provides both a 3D printing and a laser cutting service. We decided to add a blog to our website back when the company was created. The overall goal is keep you updated on all the latest news and trends of the digital manufacturing in general and 3D printing in particular. On our blog you’ll find information on the 3D printers, on 3D modeling with detailed tutorials, comparisons between the technologies, events and even discounts.
