Where in the world is 3D Printing? 3D Printing investment by countries and companies
Additive Manufacturing not only permeates many sectors, but it is also creating a world emulation. Many emerging countries see additive manufacturing as a way to keep up with the “industrialized countries”. As the industry is expanding drastically, each country is keen to be involved in 3D printing investment. We will see in this article how each country can be considered advanced in this field, regarding public and private investment... Read More
3D Printed Nanotechnology: how do those two technologies intertwine?
Nanotechnology, like 3D printing, is one of the areas in which research and progress have been most plentiful in the past few years. They’re both on their way to revolutionizing a wide range of fields, from medicine to production, from the global economy to space exploration. How are the paths of these two advancing revolutions linked and intertwined? How can nanotechnology be applied to 3D printing and vice versa? What is... Read More

But how can you exactly know the impact of these options in term of price? Sculpteo offers a direct, interactive pricing tool: once you’ve uploaded your 3D file, you... Read More
Design, iterations, production: How a Sculpteo intern 3D printed a drone from scratch
During his mechanical engineering studies, Alexis Massol was in charge of his school’s Fablab. That’s when he first started to imagine building his own drone. He looked up plans, materials, electrical components on the internet… and, over the course of five months he built a 1.5 kg fully functioning drone, using his school’s FDM 3D printer. Then he started an internship at Sculpteo, and revised his drone’s model to 3D Print a lighter,... Read More

3D Printing on Mars and the Exploration of new Materials
It’s summer, let’s dream about Martian sand! 3D printing has proven many times how revolutionizing it is for production. In this article, by discussing 3D Printing in the context of Mars exploration, we’ll see that it can go much further: when we manage to broaden the list of materials available to us, not even the sky will be the limit. Literally: by using materials like regolith, a layer of rock and dust covering the surface of... 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.
