GrabCAD print software manages the print preparation process for Stratasys 3D printer. The new Pro version is designed to improve printed part accuracy, reduce waste, and shorten time to part. It includes the features of Grabcad Print standared with additional features for better control, reduced production time, and enhanced workflows:

  •  Automatic warp correction to ensure part accuracy
  •  Ability to develop manufacturing templates
  •  Label generation
  •  3D array to arrange parts on X axis, enabling stacking of parts
  •  Integration with partner plug-ins

Initial plug-in partners include AlphaSTAR and Castor. AlphaSTAR provides toolpath-driven analysis and quality assessment of print parameters, as well as thermal process simulation to help improve design cycles and produce higher quality parts with less iteration. Castor’s decision-support software automatically analyzes thousands of parts at once to identify the best opportunities for additive manufacturing.

The new software is expected to be available from May 16 for customers using Stratasys printers based on SAF and FDM technologies.
