Paris - Sculpteo, based here, said Monday it is now
offering online 3D object creation services to U.S. customers.

 Sculpteo.com allows artists and digital photo
enthusiasts to turn 3D files into 3D hard copy creations, as well as easily
create 3D objects based on 2D drawings or simple text, the company said.

Sculpteo said
customers can order a number of different objects or model figures designed by
themselves or others, including static or articulated figures, miniatures,
prototypes, robots, models and more.

The final product
is shipped to customers in within two weeks.

The company's
design options include:

  • Users designing
    images using popular 3D software and upload them to Sculpteo.com in formats
    including OBJ, 3DS, STL, SKP and others;
  • Users selecting
    from numerous pre-designed images from Sculpteo's online gallery; and

  • a user selecting
    a 3D file available on the Web.
  • Sculpteo enables
    online customized image editing or as well as selecting size, material, and
    color or monochrome printing options.
  • Price is
    calculated automatically based on customizations.

Customization options
are as follows:

  • The material can
    be chosen based on the type of end product the customer would like. The user
    could select a sturdy plastic material for a more flexible object, while the
    plaster casting would be used for a more solid non-moveable item.

  • The size of the
    object can range from 2 inches to 10 inches depending on the type of material
    chosen.
  • The color choices are monochrome or
    multicolor.

"The response for
Sculpteo in Europe has been tremendous and the North American market has been
clamoring for our unique solution," said Clement Moreau, Sculpteo CEO and
founder.  "We are thrilled to be entering
this market and look forward to inspiring creativity and serving the business
and consumer community."
