Sculpteo and FOCUS: a partnership to increase the pace of hardware manufacturing thanks to 3D Printing

Sculpteo, provider of 3D printing services and FOCUS, the Startup Accelerator program that was launched by Usine IO at Station F, on of the biggest startup campus. The collaboration is dedicated to the industry 4.0: the Sculpteo factory in the cloud will enable startups to foster the adoption of hardware manufacturing.

The Focus program

Launched at the initiative of Usine IO, this year marks the second year of the Focus program. Several hardware startups selected by a jury of experts will work during several months around a given theme.

If the first edition was dedicated to smart autonomous vehicles, the industry 4.0 is at the heart of this year’s edition. Usine IO and its program partners evaluate the maturity of each project, then offer startups a personalized and complete follow-up based on technical, trade and business expertise.

According to Clément Moreau, cofounder and CEO of Sculpteo, “Usine IO plays its role of accelerator and innovator with an all-in-one manufacturing service integrated with Sculpteo. Startups can develop better, and faster. The factory in the cloud allows startups to overcome the constraints of manufacturing, such as the fees of the dedicated engineering departments or the round trips to the offshore factories. Hardware startups can develop functional products and test their real-world usage at a much higher pace!”
