The Sculpto+ is 100 % Wi-Fi controlled and is easily operated from your smartphone, tablet or computer. Our solution secures a stable and very high print quality in order for you to focus on printing your ideas! Never before has 3D printing been this accessible.
Download the Sculpto app, plug in the Sculpto 3D printer, connect it to your Wi-Fi and you’re ready for 3D printing!
Sculpto is a danish 3D printing company who manufactures a series of c compact and modern 3D printers that makes 3D printing very easy! With a Sculpto 3D printer, you can print directly from your smartphone or tablet. The only limitation is your imagination!
From the Sculpto app, you can choose from hundreds of different 3D models or create and design your own custom models in the 3D modelling program of your choice.
The Sculpto app is free!
If you want to design your own 3D models, you can find a lot of free 3D modelling programs on the internet.
You can find a lot of different free 3D modelling programs that are easy to use. The Sculpto 3D printer supports most of them – all it takes is for the program being able to export STL files (in other words, files in the file format .stl).
We have tested a bunch of programs that we recommend to beginners and people with little 3D printing experience:
On our Facebook-page you can se some of the things that we have printed in 3D and get inspired!
You can also see the 3D models that are a part of the Sculpto app – you can download the app on Google Play and in App Store.
Or get creative by designing your very own models in e.g. a 3D modelling program.
You can only print in one color at a time on this type of printer. If you wish to print an object in multiple colors, we recommend to divide the object in several smaller parts and print one part at a time in the color of your choice.
Besides that, it’s also possible for you to apply paint to your 3D prints.
The 3D printer pulls a biodegradable plastic material – in the shape of a more than 100 metre long cord – into a hot metal nozzle that melts the plastic material. The nozzle and the surface on which the printer is printing subsequently move in the pattern that you wish to print. This process is repeated layer by layer while the distance of the nozzle to the surface is increased. In this way, the object you want to print is also shaped upwards.
On a Sculpto 3D printer, the metal nozzle is located on a moveable arm whilst the printing surface is rotating circularly beneath the nozzle.
The Sculpto 3D printer uses a biodegradable plastic material called PLA which is made of sugar beets and corn. It’s not toxic and no harmful fumes are released when printing. The PLA is delivered on rolls (called filament) of either 0,5 or 1 kg and you can order it from Sculpto’s webshop.
It exists in various different colors and we are continuously adding new variations to the webshop – see the current selection here
People oftentimes get pleasantly surprised by the price of 3D printing. Mainly, there are two types of costs involved with 3D printing:
1) The printing material: You print using filament that you buy in rolls of 0.5 or 1 kg. In order to save material and time, your 3D prints will never be printed 100 % massive. Instead, the Sculpto 3D printer will print a grid in the solid parts of your models. This grid maintains the strength of the object and saves material. You can adjust the strength by increasing or decreasing the density of the grid.
In other words, it’s the weight of your print object that decides the price. The weight is shown to you before you start the print. The suggested retail price of 1 kg Sculpto filament is 250 DKK. Based on that price, here are a few examples of the cost of 3D printing:
Table-tennis ball: 1,25 DKK
Tennis ball: 3,25 DKK
2) Power: The power consumption of a Sculpto 3D printer is roughly the same as the power consumption of a typical laptop.
This is how the Sculpto app works
When your Sculpto 3D printer is connected to your local Wi-Fi, the Sculpto app takes over. The app is your remote control to the printer and from here you can browse between hundreds of different 3D models, follow the status of the printer and start your prints. You can download the Sculpto app on Google Play and in App Store.
