The 3D printing technology offers new possibilities

3D printing is becoming more and more common in various sectors. For production or rapid prototyping, the reasons to use additive manufacturing are numerous. It is a good way to accelerate your product development, optimize your production, and work on product design. Companies are searching for new possibilities and are expanding their manufacturing capabilities. And as some of our customers, you can now also run artistic projects just thanks to the 3D printing technology.

Additive manufacturing allows you to create complex 3D objects, and this technology is now accessible to anybody. You just need a 3D model and a 3D printer to create a complex object. If you don't own a 3D printer, don't worry, you can use an online 3D printing service such as Sculpteo.  

What's been done in 3D printing?
