Two years ago, the Sculpto 3D printer appeared to make 3D printing more affordable and user-friendly for everyone. Recently, the new version Sculpto+ came with more useful features, making it a unique printer with the same printing area and price range.
The Sculpto+ printer is a compact printer for beginners, kids and adults to start with 3D printing in a simple way. In addition to small size and lightweight, it provides a high printing performance with very low noise while working. It’s also connected wirelessly with a very easy-to-use app which makes the printing process simple and fast. We got the chance to try the printer in our lab and share our thoughts and experiences with you. The first thought we had while unboxed it is that the printer is compact enough to fit our desk and the construction quality was amazing. The design is solid and precise at the same time.
Features of the Sculpto+ 3D Printer
The Sculpto+ gives three quality options for prints; fine, normal, and fast. Even at the normal setting, the quality is high enough to satisfy most users. The Sculpto application let you choose the option which fits your resolution and time needs. According to the team, an automated slicer software delivers unique high-quality prints by processing difficult trimmings and settings.
Full Wireless Connectivity
Compared to most other 3D printers, there is no need for any connection cable or SD card. The printer is completely driven by Wi-Fi, enabling you to print from any device you want without the need to sit close to the printer. The wide compatibility allows you to print using a smartphone, computer, or any other device that can run a web app. The Sculpto+ also has a built-in memory chip to store the necessary files for printing, so you can disconnect, go outside and the print will still complete successfully.
The time needed to connect the printer to our smartphone for the first time was about 30 min. The steps needed to get it online and start printing was: download the app from play store, register a new user and login, connect your printer to smartphone and home network, calibrate z-axis, place filament and then we were ready to start our first print.
As a 3D printer user, I love this feature a lot and I think it should be a primary feature for all 3D printers. Because staying connected to the printer all the time generates many limitations for users.
Another nice feature of the Sculpto+ is that you can put it wherever you want without being worried about the noise level. The engineers of the printer took care of the printing noise and successfully reduced the printer sound level to 44-47 dB. That means only the fan sound will be heard which is similar to a townhouse background noise.
