3D printing molecular structures

Innovations within the chemical field never stop. Give a new life to your projects in the chemical industry by using 3D printing!

It can be hard to capture the exact look and feel of a molecular structure with only a description or to explain a chemical reaction. However, by introducing the 3D printing technology you can look at the chemical structure from all angles. You can also hold and touch it which adds another level of understanding. Thanks to rapid prototyping, you will be able to 3D print your molecules from scratch and watch your 3D image to come alive with your 3D model. 

You can 3D print in several materials, such as plastic or resin and many more. These materials have great technical features. For example, both plastic and resin are durable and solid enough to easily move and use the 3D printing. You can also use our multicolor material which allows for a distinction between molecules on the same chemical compound.


3D print parts of your machine

Equipment in chemistry are often complex and the machines are often composed of hundreds of parts that can actually be 3D printed instead. Laboratory equipment can be optimized thanks to additive manufacturing!

Thanks to 3D printing you can 3D print important parts for your machine. You could 3D print simple objects as boxes but also 3D print complex objects as mechanical parts. 

With this technology, you have the possibility to 3D print big products for your needs in chemistry, or to print prototypes. Thanks to our professional 3D printers you can do it without having to purchase a 3D printer, and you can also reduce inventory time. Cheap cost and speed provided via 3D printing will help you to shorten the amount of time and iterations required to get your desired results.

Create accurate tools thanks to 3D printing

3D printing allows you to create affordable and complex pieces which would not be able to get with traditional manufacturing. For example, you could 3D print mechanical pieces or boxes for your product. Developing innovative parts has never been so easy!

Complex parts can wear out easily, instead of ordering new parts imagine if you could re-engineer the parts to reduce wear. Your parts would last longer and they would be custom made specifically for you. With 3D printing, you can print a new part in just a few clicks. You wouldn’t have to have any stock on hand in inventory, instead, you can manage your stock electronically with just the push of a button. 

The plastic material and the flexible material are specially fitted to produce very accurate tools. Our professional 3D printers allow you to get an accurate chemical tool thanks to a high 3D printing resolution (from 25 to 100 microns). From the chemical tools or a promotional model, Sculpteo is able to 3D print what you want to make perfect chemical projects.


The 4 Sculpteo benefits that make a real difference for the chemical industry

High Definition 3D Printing

We're working with a range of full-color or monochromatic high-grade 3D printers that offer excellent accuracy, with various technologies which can be used in the chemistry world such as Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).

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 give you the ability to print your model starting at 1 copy. If you are not in a hurry, we can offer cheaper 3D printing solutions for chemical companies.

Customized service

We can prepare your 3D file on-request, 3D print it with raw material, and take charge of the finishing steps (painting, display case...). Implementing 3D printing in your manufacturing processes becomes easy with our online additive manufacturing service!

Prototypes and products printed by Sculpteo

OpenQCM Microbalance

Open-Source Quartz Crystal Microbalance

Open Source projects are all the rage nowadays, just like 3D Printing. OpenQCM is the first scientific scale, to fully utilize the open source revolution. For the project to fully capitalize on open source, it needed to first be universally accessible – and 3D printing has made it a possibility.

3D printed Prototype of the 360° degrees giroptic camera

Giroptic's prototype

Giroptic is a successfully Kickstarter funded startup who printed a partially functional prototype to show their customers a full-scale version of the product.

Maquette de la villa Teo par JB Pontecorvo

Jean-Baptiste Pontecorvo's Project

This designer chose full-color material and white plastic material in order to create his study models for the Teo Villa. Teo Villa is a very innovative self-sufficient green housing project; 3D printing was used to perfectly simulate the shapes of the roof and to create the model of the wind turbine.
