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.
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.
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.
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.

3D printed prototypes and educational parts by Sculpteo
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!
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.
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.
7 architecture students from ENSAD designed this incredibly detailed city and choose to 3D print in polyamide for their school exhibition named GIANT.
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.
STEM Day for girls
Sculpteo is sponsoring STEM Day for girls and happy to 3D Print science classes projects. Lesson ideas come to live thanks to 3D printing!
