Tensile strength: Additive manufacturing vs Injection molding
This is the final installment of the “Material Considerations for Additive Manufacturing of Polymers” series investigating the tensile performance of polymers processed with Additive Manufacturing. To quickly recap, Part 1 of this series described two AM manufacturing technologies, Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), and introduced two materials that the FDM and SLS systems can process. Part 2 examined... Read More
Tensile properties of materials: FDM printer & SLS printer
As was mentioned in “Material Considerations for Additive Manufacturing of Polymers: Part 1”, the material properties of a part manufactured via AM do not necessary reflect the material data sheet that the manufacturers release. Luckily for designers and engineers, researchers have been working to identify trends in the properties of parts printed by the different systems. Part 2 looks specifically at tensile properties of materials... Read More

SLS method & FDM process for 3D printing with Plastic
Hi Everyone, I’m Phil. This week, we’re starting a new series of posts on material considerations for 3D printing with plastic. When designing parts you intend to 3D print, being aware of the material (or system) you plan on building your part with is critical to successful fabrication. There are fundamental differences in the way that each system builds 3D parts, which means not only are there different design and... Read More
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the 3D Printing Cloud Engine: Vol.1
Hello Everyone, I’m Arthur, Business Developer at Sculpteo, and I’d like to talk about the integration of Sculpteo’s 3D Printing Cloud Engine. It’s been over a year now since I joined Sculpteo, and I’ve seen hundreds of Cloud Integration projects. Some were successful and some weren’t. It came to my mind that now might be a good time to start a series of posts to guide you “through” the... Read More
Get your hands on your 3D printed HD selfie!

Hi, Alex here again, Sculpteo’s UX designer. Great news Wednesday as we rolled out a totally new print page, with a different layout and a couple of pretty nice new features rolled in. I thought I’d take a few minutes to give you a tour. The old ‘design’ view has now been split up. A design’s settings, customization and 3D printing are now all available from the design’s thumbnail in your gallery.... Read More
