What is 3D Printing?

3D Printing or additive manufacturing is a digital manufacturing technology that enables us to transform a 3D file into a object layer by layer. The 3D file sums up all descriptive informations about the 3D model so that they could be translated in a group of digital orders for a 3D printer.

The 3D printer builds objects by adding a layer of material on the top of another layer. A lot of different materials are available (plastics, resins, wax, metals...) for 3D printing, in the form of powder, liquid or filament.

The main benefit of 3D Printing is the possibility of producing any kind of shape, starting at 1 copy. This manufacturing process is ideal for custom parts and short series for scale models.

The benefits of Sculpteo 3D Printing for scale modeling

  • Our professional-grade 3D Printers are able to produce high-detailed objects thanks to excellent resolution (layer thickness up to 25 microns). This high-detailed rendering is strongly appreciated for scale modeling.
  • There's no minimum order, we manufacture your model starting at 1 copy. This way, you can do tests before ordering larger quantities.
  • You can easily change the scale of your design directly online, avoiding you from uploading several versions of the same 3D model.
  • You can share a link of your models with other enthusiasts and earn royalties on the sales of your creations.

You design in 3D

In order to 3D Print you need to send us a 3D file that you can easily design with a 3D modeling software (or CAD Software). For beginners, we suggest a list of free softwares and offer free tutorials.

You upload it

25+ 3D file formats are accepted on! You just need to upload and we'll give a feedback and a quote for your custom part in seconds. We also provide optimization tools to help you to get your scale model at the best price.

Your order online

You can choose directly online your material and your scale. Plastic, full color material, resine, alumide, metals... the choice is yours!
Tip: white plastic is best for scale modeling.

You receive it

We deliver your order at the place of your choice so you can make unique figurines! Items are usually shipped 48h after your order. Looking for some advice on finishing? Have a look on our tutorials about painting and finishing.
