ROCK HILL, South Carolina and Frankfurt, Germany, –December 4, 2013 – 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) today announced Geomagic® Print™, a print driver that makes 3D files from virtually any source instantly printable on 3DS’ entire portfolio of ProJet® and ProX™ series printers. In line with 3DS’ commitment to democratizing access to 3D printing, Geomagic Print is an easy-to-use, intuitive tool that automates and optimizes the print prep process across 3DS’ platform of professional 3D printers. Geomagic Print is immediately available with the company’s new ProJet 5500X multi-material composites 3D printer and will become available across the entire portfolio during the first half of 2014.
Geomagic Print makes it easy to achieve outstanding 3D printing results by accepting files from any CAD system along with a variety of other 3D applications and preparing them for 3D printing. This powerful universal print driver can automatically setup supports, nest multiple parts into a single job and ensure the ideal settings for optimal true-to-CAD print results. Geomagic Print also detects and directs the correction of problem files and optimizes designs based on the specific 3DS printer that will be used, eliminating the need to learn and maintain any other print preparation software.
“For decades our customers just wanted to point, click and print their CAD designs,” remarked Ping Fu, Chief Strategy Officer, 3D Systems. “And for the first time ever Geomagic Print delivers with one easy-to-use product that is powerful, intuitive and works seamlessly across all of our professional printers saving our customers valuable time and money.”
3DS invented the first 3D printer and was the first to commercialize it in 1989. Today its 3D printers and scan-to-design and inspection software tools are the industry’s gold standard for high precision large-scale production-grade manufacturing in aerospace, automotive, patient specific medical device and a variety of industrial grade investment casting use cases.
3DS is demonstrating Geomagic Print and revealing a dozen new products that catapult its entire portfolio of design-to-manufacturing solutions forward at EuroMold 2013 in Frankfurt, Germany, December 3 – 6, 2013 at the Frankfurt Messe, hall 11, stand E68. The exponential speed, size and capacity gains delivered by these groundbreaking printers, advanced material options, and new scan-to-design and inspection tools defines the very essence of 3DPRINTING 2.0.
