Learning by manipulating: 3D print your example to add a new dimension to the educational experience

Additive manufacturing allows complex ideas to live in the real world. That's why 3D printing in educational programs is a true asset.

From engineering and mathematics to geography and history, one of the key challenges for education is to allow everyone to grasp the most abstracts concepts. Have you ever thought of including additive manufacturing in your lesson plans to make your school subjects easier to understand? 3D printing is the solution to give them life and allow everyone to physically manipulate complex ideas. Visualizing data into space or creating physical educational material is a great addition to 3D images, texts, and videos. Additive manufacturing makes the learning process easier, from primary education to university.

Our different 3D printing materials, like plastic or resin, are very resistant over time, which allows you to transport and manipulate your material without risk. The multicolor material allows you to recreate textures from a historical object or to present data in 3D.

HD 3D printing quality at the best price

Professional 3D printing is very complementary to the desktop 3D printer you can use in your classroom. It allows your students to push their experiments and projects further, by benefiting from a higher 3D printing quality, at the best possible price.

More than 75 materials and finishes are available directly online and the cost for your 3D print is automatically calculated and displayed online, for parts that can be up to 70cm. We are offering discounts for educational projects and bulk orders for your students.

We are 3D printing your order in a few days and shipping worldwide. Start using 3D printing in the classroom now!

Technical, design or engineering curriculum: bring the professional world to your students

3D printing is a great tool for curriculum with a high level of professionalization. Using Sculpteo allows students to understand how they can easily go from a 3D file to a 3D model and a product, which is great for their professional development. Our exclusive online tools allow everyone to analyze, review and optimize 3D files autonomously. As a result, they get a real 3D printing lesson.

Students can print mechanical parts, architectural mockups, prototypes, art... Online 3D printing gives students -engineering students, design students, etc.- the chance to bring their project to life, quickly and in conditions simulating the professional life. Instead of spending time partnering with an outside company, you can use Sculpteo's platform as an online educational tool and concentrate on other topics that matter. It will also help your students improve their critical thinking thanks to a practical approach to your subject. 


The 4 Sculpteo benefits that make a real difference for the education

High Definition 3D Printing

We're working with a range of full-color or monochromatic high-grade 3D printers that offer excellent accuracy (layer thickness from 25 to 150 microns) to give life to your 3D designed projects for the education sector.

Open 24/7

No need to wait until Monday morning to get a quote, do it online! Our exclusive 3D tools allow you to check the solidity of the walls and how details will render. 

For everyone

There's no minimum order, we 3D print your model starting at 1 copy. If you are not in a hurry, we can offer you a cheaper price.

Customized service

We can prepare your 3D file on-request and take charge of the finishing steps (painting, display case...). You started 3D printing recently? We guide you all along the way for an optimized result.

They 3D print with us

High-schools, higher education, museums, 3D printing educators...they choose online 3D printing
Thanks for the fantastic models you've made for us, and we'll know where to go to get more in the future.
Outsourcing parts allows us to work without the investments and time dedicated to the production aspect. This frees up time for my students’ creativity – and they’re very happy to see their part for real, and what’s more 100% functional in their prototype.
Sculpteo is the high-tech self-service for 3D Printing in France.

3D printed prototypes and educational parts by Sculpteo

Mechanical parts for highschool

Mechanical parts

High-school students with the help of the technology teacher Jean-Luc Durou are prototyping and 3D printing mechanical parts that they designed on Solidworks. Fast delivery enables them to receive the parts for the next class. A great introduction to industrial 3D design!

3D printed archeological artifacts

Archeological replicas

The French Science Museum Cap Sciences created a wandering archeological workshop for young children with 3D printed artifacts. These educational objects are replicas from historical treasures of the French museums.

3D printed geographical data

Datavision and 3D maps

Volker Schweifurth from Melies Art transforms the flow of data that we are receiving every day in physical full-colored objects. He uses multicolor 3D Printing.

3D printed architecture mockup

Architectural model

7 architecture students from ENSAD designed this incredibly detailed city and choose to 3D print in polyamide for their school exhibition named GIANT.

3D printed satellite

Satellite project by Paris Tech University

Study of a nanosatellite for the CNES (IUT of Cachan). Pascal Martinelli of the University Paris-Sud (IUT of Cachan) and his students created 30 prototypes of the EyeSat satellite for the CNES. 80% of the mechanical parts have been 3D printed by Sculpteo.
