-Universal cloud-based design-to-print platform makes 3D printing easier, more intuitive and readily accessible
-Introduces the next generation of the Fortus 900mc and FDM material Nylon 6 enabling manufacturers to build robust production parts, jigs and fixtures, and factory tooling with unmatched reliability and repeatability

HONG KONG/PRNewswire/ — Stratasys Asia Pacific, subsidiary of Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq: SSYS), the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, today announced the global release and availability of GrabCAD Print: a universal design-to-print application to advance the company’s 3D printing software strategy.

Built on a proven, Software-as-a-Service platform, the solution creates an easy-to-use 3D print preparation and scheduling environment for both designers and engineers, making 3D printing significantly easier, more intuitive and highly accessible.

The company also introduced the next generation of the proven large format Stratasys Fortus 900mc production 3D printer and new FDM material Nylon 6 that are designed and built for the manufacturing floor.

Unified Platform for Job Preparation, Scheduling and Monitoring

Announced in June 2016, the Stratasys GrabCAD Print software is specifically designed to make 3D printing faster, easier, more intuitive, and readily accessible while reducing errors by eliminating requirements to translate and repair CAD files. Product designers, engineers, and 3D printer operators can now send native CAD files to a Stratasys 3D Printer or service bureau directly from their familiar CAD environments.

Further bolstered by an extensive new business intelligence infrastructure, the application also facilitates data sharing related to job scheduling, print queue status, material usage and historical usage, thus accelerates data-driven decision-making. All information is readily available via standard Web browsers, mobile applications or locally installed clients while securely managed through the GrabCAD Platform.

The software now includes localization for more than eight global and support for a broad range of advanced Stratasys FDM printers. Customers such as Joe Gibbs Racing and 4Moms are now utilizing GrabCAD Print to dramatically streamline their complex production processes, consolidating both monitoring and scheduling and effectively balancing demanding workloads via a unified interface.

The GrabCAD Print Software can now be downloaded on the GrabCAD website.

Large format Stratasys Fortus 900mc and new Nylon 6 fill the need for high throughput, precision and repeatability

Stratasys also introduced the new generation of the proven large format Stratasys Fortus 900mc production 3D printer as an important step towards a clear manufacturing-centric approach to 3D printing. With unmatched accuracy, repeatability and predictability that are required for critical manufacturing applications, the Fortus 900mc Gen II offers a new control software, internal camera, GrabCAD Print software, other strong lineup of features in addition to the core mechanics of the original 900mc system, delivering high throughput and superior reliability to manufacturing professionals making industrial & heavy equipment, and those at service bureaus.

The Fortus 900mc uses engineering-grade thermoplastics — including the newly released FDM Nylon 6 (Polyamide 6 / PA6) — to build robust production parts, durable functional prototypes and reliable manufacturing tools such as jigs and fixtures and other factory assemblies. The full specification of the Fortus 900mc Gen II can be found here.

The Stratasys Fortus 900mc Gen II is expected to be of interest to three main groups:

  1. Industrial product, aerospace and automotive users that need to optimize their manufacturing throughput to create efficient and cost-effective solutions.
  2. New product designers who need a quick, reliable method to test prototypes for fit, function and durability, or who need to quickly create manufacturing aids or tooling.
  3. Service bureaus that need a flexible 3D printer that can work in multiple engineering-grade materials to produce robust and often larger parts for their customers’ needs, from concept testing to manufacturing floor-ready manufacturing aids and tooling.
