Thanks for the fantastic models you've made for us, and we'll know where to go to get more in the future.

Will Grover, Research Associate MIT

" It's a model of our lab's Suspended Microchannel Resonator (SMR) mass sensor, a tiny microfluidic device that we use to weigh single cells. We made the model as an educational or interpretive tool to help explain how the SMR works. In reality, the part of the SMR that looks like a diving board is actually about the size of a human hair. The diving board vibrates at a certain frequency, and when a cell passes through the channel inside the diving board, the frequency changes in proportion to the mass of the cell - that's how we weigh cells. In two of the images I've used a video projector to project an animation onto the model - the colors indicate different fluids in the device, and the little white circle represents a cell. This turns the model into a "3D movie" of sorts, and has been a very effective teaching tool. Thanks for the fantastic models you've made for us, and we'll know where to go to get more in the future.

They’re fully custom-made, accommodate complex geometries, and come at an attractive price. We're very happy with the service offered by Sculpteo. And what’s more, the quality of the materials and delivery times perfectly address our needs: our items ship 2 days after each of our orders! "







Pierre Garner, designer
" Quickly producing a 3D model allows us to visualize the real thing rather than an image, which helps to make decisions on its proportions and evaluate perceptions of the object. "

Withings Baby Phone designed by Elium Studio,

laser-sintered polyamide prototype.
Rewarded a star from L’Observeur du Design 2011, Lieu du Design Award for the Paris Region and 2 CES Innovation Awards
What were your needs in terms of rapid prototyping? In other words, why was it important for you to use the rapid prototyping process?
Rapid prototyping was essential for us to check the volumes of our submissions, especially for the Smart Baby Monitor where two very different solutions were under consideration. It helped with our decision based on a realistic model and let us quickly visualize the changes we needed to apply.

What are the benefits of an intermediate model in the process of defining objects?
They are multiple:
- Quickly producing a 3D model allows us to visualize the real thing rather than an image, which helps to make decisions on its proportions and evaluate perceptions of the object. It’s an essential step in the project development process and is all the more effective when used in the early stages, which only rapid prototyping allows.
- Moreover, rapid prototyping allows us to easily include functional elements (kinematics, moving parts) which a “foam” mock-up cannot. Again, this helps to validate our architectural choices.
- And finally, with an adequate design, it allows us to produce different options with a common basis and test several submissions very cheaply.

Can you tell us what you think of Sculpteo’s production process and turnaround time, and the quality of their items?
The production process is extremely simple – it can be fully managed remotely. You upload your file, they check it, send a reliable quote and start manufacturing almost immediately. That means we can receive our item within 48 to 72 hours, which is virtually impossible with other methods.

" 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. "

Jean-Luc Durou, technology teacher

" The goal for our first high school year class was to create a ‘sensor bar’ (an accessory for Nintendo’s Wii game console) that could be used on a USB port. For the last year, the point was mainly to produce parts and assemblies designed with a volume modeler to create a working prototype. We used SolidWorks (2007 version). The students themselves design the parts and I handle export in a format compatible with Sculpteo.com (WRML format for colour parts). We receive the parts within more or less a week, allowing us to get parts in time for the next class. The main advantage is the overall cost: investing in a colour 3D printer would require about 20 000 euros, plus supplies, plus training, fine-tuning, etc. 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. "







Roubert Ravaux Clément, architectes
" We have worked with a lot of partners, and Sculpteo particularly for our scale model made by 3D printing, which has allowed us to produce the model in a very short time, in the exact way we imagined it. "

Teo Villa Project by designer Jean-Baptiste Pontecorvo

Model produced by laser-sintered polyamide and colour 3D printing.
" I was wondering how a model-maker could create some of Villa TEO’s elements: the roof, solar canopy and wind turbine had complex shapes and curves. With traditional models, this would have quite simply been impossible. With rapid prototyping, it only took a few hours: it's fast, sturdy and true to the original model. I am very happy with my collaboration with the Sculpteo team, who were fully involved in the project and highly responsive. "

Jérôme Cohen, Manager
" The time we save with Sculpteo has allowed us to optimize and develop our creative work with very reasonable costs. The factories we work with are blown away by the quality and level of detail of the prototypes we send them. "

Jérôme Cohen, Manager

" We are delighted with our collaboration with Sculpteo, which has allowed us to develop a great deal of objects with extreme precision and incredible speed. Until now, modelling an object took a minimum of 2 to 3 weeks, now it hardly takes a couple of days. The time we save with Sculpteo has allowed us to optimize and develop our creative work with very reasonable costs. The factories we work with are blown away by the quality and level of detail of the prototypes we send them. "







Didier Faustino, designer
" thanks to Sculpteo, this type of printing has become more affordable and boosted our freedom of creation. "

Didier Faustino Exhibition at Galeries Lafayette Maison

" This technology allows us to increase the level of detail and precision on parts previously difficult to handle when models were managed manually. Today, thanks to Sculpteo, this type of printing has become more affordable and boosted our freedom of creation. It is also much easier to duplicate an item, like a digital mould would be destroyed after the copies are printed. This new form of creation raises questions about the difference between a physical object and its virtual doppelganger, a difference that is tending to fade as such technologies are perfected. "







Jérôme Saravas, 3D designer
" You quite obviously offered the best value for money. "

Jérôme SARAVAS

" The famous cow at http://citronvache.com.br/v2/ has evolved from Laurent Cardon’s rather 2D design to my 3D version - and from there to your 3D print. What’s funny is that in a way, Laurent is now haunted by his cow: he keeps getting given cow-themed mugs, objects with cows all over them, cows made of plasticine… So I may not have been very original, but at least I was modern. Why Sculpteo? Because of this piece about 3D printing on the 3DVF website: http://www.3dvf.com/dossier-616-1-impression-3d-en-ligne.html#3Dvolumeprint - you quite obviously offered the best value for money.
