Prototype quickly and easily

Thanks to our fast and reliable 3D printing service, improve your product conception cycle. Automotive 3D printing is a clear asset for auto manufacturers in their product design process. Indeed, the advantages of additive manufacturing are numerous compared to another manufacturing process such as injection molding. Traditional methods don't give you the same freedom in automotive manufacturing.

Rapid prototyping allows designers to shorten prototyping time from a few months to a few days. This does not only shorten your product development time but it will also improve your final product by increasing the number of iterations. Moreover, using the 3D printing technology rather than traditional manufacturing technologies is reducing the cost of product development with a more rapid development. And we all know that low costs are a true competitive advantage in the automotive industry.

Our SLS 3D printing plastic material (Selective Laser Sintering) is both strong and slightly flexible. It is the perfect material for prototyping. We offer it in a wide range of dyed colors and in white or grey solid plastic and our lead time can be as low as 2-3 days.

Improve the design of your objects thanks to 3D printing

3D printing allows your designers to unleash their creativity. Machine design becomes easier with the additive manufacturing technology, and complex geometries are not an issue anymore. You can reduce costs of your concept models, of your functional prototyping, but also of your finished goods.

3D printing can virtually produce any part you can imagine as long as the design guidelines are respected. This allows you to create lighter and stronger parts that could not be produced by any other production method. Complex geometries are now fully accessible. Reducing weight is made easy with the use of lattices, for instance, a 3D design features which can only be produced thanks to the 3D printing process. You can also insert jigs and fixtures right in your parts, which will strongly reduce your lead time when it comes to your assembly line.

You can easily use our service to produce a large number of parts thanks to our online batch control tool which allows you to fully control the production of your part and save money at the same time. 3D print car parts easily thanks to our 3D printing service!

Demonstration models to sell your products

Since showing your product to the customer can often make the deal, 3D printing is definitely a very powerful marketing tool. 

With 3D printing, you can easily turn your products into reality. The customization is unlimited. This way, you can print your customer's exact product, no matter what level of uniquely tailored design is chosen. It will also reduce your production time for custom-made items.

We have several 3D printed materials to offer you. If you wish to showcase an innovative mechanical part, pick our plastic material. For a realistic representation of your product, like racing cars, our multicolor material is probably the best choice. 3D print car models which will perfectly represent your automotive products thanks to Sculpteo!

Also, keep in mind that we provide you with metal 3D printing at Sculpteo, which can be precious for your automotive projects.

Drastically optimize your supply chain thanks to 3D printing

Additive manufacturing can print any number of pieces wherever there is a printer. For instance, have you ever thought of 3D printing tooling? Our 3D metal printing can truly help you with that.

This incredible 3D printing asset means that you no longer need to produce thousands of pieces to be effective. You can etiher create a part directly from 3D printing or create a customized tool for just one application. 

3D printing is also the perfect solution for your spare parts. You don't need to have a lot of them stored somewhere, you can simply store the 3D files and print the objects on demand. This is for sure going to revolutionize the way you handle spare parts.

They 3D print with us

Engineers, Architects, industries... they have chosen Online 3D Printing!
Designing with 3D printing in mind is quite liberating because there are far fewer restrictions and boundaries, enabling otherwise impossible forms and complexity. Without Sculpteo’s expert help, we simply wouldn’t have been able to produce as compelling a product.
Thanks to Sculpteo's efficient 3D printing service, we were able to release our first Bluetooth beacons in a record timeframe.
Thanks for the beautiful models that you [Sculpteo] have produced for us, we will order from you again.

NightHawk: the first headphones with 3D-Printed parts

Thanks to 3D printing, AudioQuest was able to create parts with a complexity unachievable through traditional manufacturing means. This is a great example of mass production thanks to our service, using the batch control. Thousands of pieces have been printed so far.

Blue Robotics 3D printing

Blue Robotics uses 3D printing to design submarine drones

Blue Robotics wanted to launch a solar robotic boat from Los Angeles to Hawaii. As they realized that none of the propellers on the market fitted their needs, they decided to design a new one. And rapid prototyping helped them along their way.
