The intuitive 3DPro(TM) Software Suite has an easy-to-use 3-D print user interface much like common 2-D print user interfaces and provides numerous productivity and cost-saving benefits.
Viper(TM) Pro SLA(R) Systems are the first systems to feature this new software package. 3D Systems plans to make 3DView(TM), 3DManage(TM) and 3DPrint(TM) its new industry standard tool, with future releases available for its other products, including legacy SLA(R) Systems, Sinterstation(R) Pro SLS(R) Systems and InVision(R) 3-D Modelers.
The company believes that the creation of a new industry standard software interface will make it easier to manage and operate service bureaus, manufacturing centers, print centers and offices that use multiple products and systems.
Key features of the new software are:
-- Integrated job submission, tracking and reporting
-- Integrated CAD viewing and verification
-- Integrated .stl file manipulation tools
-- "Drag and drop" part placement and build preparation
-- Configurable automated file processing
These features significantly simplify the build set-up process, reduce build set-up time, reduce labor hours and increase total system throughput and system utilization.
The new software also features a synchronized database that tracks system and build data for an entire operation. Data and reports can be automatically generated, supporting scheduling and forecasting activities, operations management and statistical process control (SPC) programs.
"We are pleased to deliver such a significant productivity tool to our customers," said Abe Reichental, 3D Systems' president and chief executive officer. "The creation of a common and standard user interface across product lines combined with sophisticated scheduling, tracking and reporting capabilities are new to our industry and directly support our manufacturing and 3-D Modeling growth initiatives."
