ROCK HILL, South Carolina, November 24, 2014 – 3D Systems(NYSE:DDD) today announced 3DSPRINTTM, a new desktop and cloud-based platform that changes the way people share, view and print 3D data. 3DSPRINT empowers anyone to access and print 3D data anytime, from any source, anywhere, breaking down historic design and manufacturing barriers to 3D printing. It allows engineers, designers, service bureaus and customers to focus on delivering the best products to market faster than ever and worry less about if and how they’ll get their 3D prints. Users can store, access and share data with anyone they choose, from wherever they want: in a secured public cloud, on the desktop or in their own private cloud.
“We are very excited to deliver the full power and benefits of our integrated digital thread to our extensive user community worldwide,” said Avi Reichental, President and CEO, 3DS. “With 3DSPRINT we are giving engineers and designers the ultimate streamlined shared cloud and desktop platform experience that makes the design-to-manufacturing workflow faster, simpler and ubiquitously connected.”
With 3DSPRINT, users can access the full range of on-demand cloud printing capabilities with a single click via 3DS’ Quickparts service or print to an in-house printer, opening up unlimited possibilities in the design-to-manufacturing process. Additionally, with sophisticated printability analysis and instant cost calculation, 3DSPRINT users can be confident that their parts will come out right, on time and on budget. The platform allows users to work with 3D data from virtually any source in their browser or via the desktop app.
3DSPRINT is a free platform for all users and will offer premium enterprise features for enhanced productivity and workflow control. 3DS plans to preview the platform at EuroMold 2014, including live demos and exclusive invitations for users to experience it.
The 3DSPRINT desktop app is immediately available for ProJet 1200 and ProJet 5500X, and will be available for 3DS’ entire range of ProJet and ProX printers in the future. The 3DSPRINT cloud app will be available for preview and user feedback after EuroMold 2014.
