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...

Innovation is a challenge for regulation, and, in many ways, regulation is a slowing factor for innovation. This can be explained in simple terms: innovation is fast, and, these days, it goes faster and faster, disrupting the way we communicate, create, consume, live; on the other hand, regulation is slow, and it needs to be: it takes into account the social impact of technology, its potential uses, abuses and complications. In the...

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...
