Sculpteo's New 3D-Printing Services Results In More Polished Finishes

Sculpteo, a Paris, France-based company that offers a wide variety of 3D printing-related services for individual and corporate clients, is now offering a wonderful new 3D-printing process that is designed to make it easier than ever for people to 3D-print objects that end up looking more complete.

Aptly called a 'smoothing beautifier', this particular 3D-printing process can be used on objects that are printed via additive manufacturing and laser sintering processes. This new technique is used after the regular printing process and results in a smooth and shiny finish that is a significant upgrade over the rough finish that many prototyped and 3D-printed objects show when plastic-based powders are used.

This is a 3D-printing process that aims to increase the quality of output, resulting in better product design.
