Sculpteo Partners with French Post Office

France-based 3D print service Sculpteo has partnered with the French post office, La Poste, to provide 3D print services at three locations in the Paris area. 
 
La Poste is interested in exploring new ways to revive interest in using postal services - and 3D printing could be one of those ways if the experiment works. 
 
Customers will be able to select or upload models using workstations at the La Poste offices to trigger a print. It appears that there will not be 3D printers at these offices, but instead Sculpteo will produce items at their usual facility and then forward them for pick up at the post offices. 
 
Will this help La Poste? We're not sure, but certainly visitors to these offices will no doubt gain an understanding of 3D printing they never had before.
