In this blog series we will share our expertise on the Carbon 3D M1 resins. After the 1st post on Rigid Polyurethane the second article will focus on the most... Read More
Is your 3D file good enough for 3D Printing? 6 questions to find the answer
Here at Sculpteo, we encounter a lot of different 3D files. However, some of them are not suitable for 3D printing, and need some more work before being produced. Here are the 6 questions you should ask yourself whenever you want to launch the printing of an object! Does your 3D design have volume? First of all, you need to be sure that your design is a volume. Try to imagine a flat surface as an object: if it exists in real... Read More
Take the assembly out of your enclosures by designing a living hinge
Assembling your enclosures take time and effort to complete, and the last thing you want to do is hand assemble 3D printed enclosures if you don’t have to. That’s why today we will show you one unique design for hinges that will remove the assembly step. Integrated assembly is only one of the many benefits you receive when you use additive manufacturing to create your parts. This is a big benefit for those interested in saving not... Read More

When is 3D Printing the best solution for production?
3D printing, also called additive manufacturing, is the process of using specialized equipment to assemble, via a computer and a 3D model, an object layer by layer. It has some unique and interesting advantages over traditional manufacturing. First, additive manufacturing allows production costs to stay the same rather there are one or a thousand units. This has several implications: it makes production available to small businesses... Read More
