At Christmas 2016, Sculpto launched a polar 3D printer that was completely different from other desktop 3D printers. After only a short period of time, it became one of the best-selling 3D printers in all of Denmark. Now the Danish company developed their 3D printer further and is about to launch the new Sculpto+!
Sculpto was founded in the year 2015 when the entrepreneurs, Simon Breum Fisker and Jacob Lindeberg, became aware of the 3D print technology. Simon and Jacob immediately saw the potential of this technology and it didn’t take long before they arrived at the conclusion that everyone should have access to it!
Though, they quickly realized that the reason why everyone didn’t have a 3D printer at their disposal was that a 3D printer was quite expensive, complicated to use, big and time demanding. So Simon and Jacob teamed up with some of the best 3D printing nerds and software developers in order to build a conecpt that would make 3D printing much more accessable.
Instead of cartesian 3D printers weighing more than 10 kg, they decided to design a polar 3D printer that was much more simplistic in its construction. They did so by rethinking the traditional design of a 3D printer. This led to an incredibly simple and stable polar design which makes the Sculpto 3D printer to one of the most compact and mobile 3D printers on the market and with a weight of only 2,7kg and the possibility of printing objects with the size of a football, 3D printing has suddenly become much more accessable.
Somthing else that, in Simon’s and Jacob’s opinion, needed to be changed was the software. The process of finding or designing a model demanded expert knowledge and was very complicated. Sculpto has changed all that by automating the processes in the “cloud” and making the printer 100% wireless, making it possible to print directly and with only one click on your smartphone or tablet.
