Stratasys New Platform Improves Additive Manufacturing

Polymer 3D printing solutions company Stratasys Ltd. has introduced two new software packages. Namely, the GrabCAD Streamline Pro™ and a new version of GrabCAD Print Pro™ for PolyJet™.

These packages bring the power of Stratasys’ GrabCAD software to additional customers. Thus, helping increase their efficiency and reduce costs through improved workflows.

The first version of GrabCAD Print Pro for FDM and SAF has increased hardware usage amongst some customers by 30 to 50 percent. Moreover, customers can better organize the front and backend of moving and processing parts. Thus, giving them more opportunity to scale up their additive manufacturing capabilities.

They can also accelerate time-to-market by facilitating rapid design iterations and reducing dependency on physical prototyping. Moreover, they can also reduce costs by eliminating expensive tooling and molds needed for traditional manufacturing. In addition, they can remove geometric complexities that are not feasible with conventional methods.

“Our software provides essential capabilities for scaling up additive manufacturing workflows,” said Victor Gerdes, Vice President, Software, Stratasys. Furthermore, Gerdes said, “We are connecting users with a centralized platform. (We) give them more information to make data-driven decisions. (We also) provide them with the precision and detailing that can only come from additive manufacturing.”

GrabCAD Streamline Pro

The new GrabCAD Streamline Pro is a comprehensive workgroup software suite, powered by GrabCAD Print™. Designed to connect people, parts, and printers, GrabCAD Streamline Pro eases managing a company’s entire fleet of Stratasys 3D printers from one platform.

Moreover, it creates the opportunity for secure, centralized software workflows for efficient part production at any scale. This is regardless of the number of printers or types of parts printed.

In addition, GrabCAD Streamline Pro enables integration of Stratasys printers and GrabCAD Print with GrabCAD software partners, and a company’s business systems. This thereby leads to higher efficiency, reduced cost and business process automation.

Some of the key features of GrabCAD Streamline Pro include an advanced dashboards and analytics for AM Managers. It also has real-time monitoring and customizable alerts for shop operators to stay informed about printer events.

In addition, it comes with simplified tools for submitting, tracking, and consolidating 3D printing requests.

GrabCAD Streamline Pro maximizes productivity, increases cybersecurity, and optimizes software workflows. Thereby, making it essential for scaling 3D printing. Learn more about GrabCAD Streamline Pro here.

GrabCAD Print Pro for PolyJet

Building off the successful launch of GrabCAD Print Pro for FDM and SAF, Stratasys is bringing the GrabCAD Print Pro package to its PolyJet technology. Specifically, PolyJet is becoming more recognized in manufacturing, as it produces a high-quality finished product.

With GrabCAD Print Pro, manufacturers have advanced capabilities to allow for more large-scale additive manufacturing. GrabCAD Print Pro also has advanced features that support workflow automation, which leads to more sustainable repeatability, more consistent part accuracy and reduced prep time.
