Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a leader in polymer 3D printing solutions, has introduced GrabCAD Print for the Stratasys Origin One and Origin One Dental 3D printers. An application of the GrabCAD Additive Manufacturing Platform, GrabCAD Print will provide users with an integrated, all-in-one software solution for streamlining the 3D printing workflow for print build file preparation and post-print analysis.
The integration with GrabCAD Print is the first step in integrating Origin One into the full platform. The GrabCAD Additive Manufacturing Platform enables two-way connectivity between 3D printers, additive manufacturing and enterprise applications, and broader Industry 4.0 infrastructure. The open and enterprise-ready platform brings together GrabCAD applications and third-party GrabCAD Software Partners via the GrabCAD Software Development Kit (SDK). This ecosystem approach enables manufacturers to manage their production-scale additive manufacturing operations across the entire digital thread – from design through production. GrabCAD Print for Origin One will provide an alternative to 3rd party pre-print software solutions, providing users with a consistent user experience and connectivity with Stratasys 3D printing technologies while replacing the native Origin web application.
“After being acquired by Stratasys, customers told us that the ability to use GrabCAD Print should be a top development priority. Today we are happy to announce that we’re able to bring the productivity and simplified workflow of GrabCAD Print to that rapidly growing community of Origin One users,” said Ronen Lebi, Vice President, Head of Production (P3) for Stratasys. “In addition to GrabCAD Print for Origin One, we are continuing to add solutions to our portfolio to best meet the needs of our customers. These new solutions allow us to better serve customers who need an offline printer solution and provide additional security features for the Stratasys Origin One printer.”
The GrabCAD Print software solution provides improved print preparation, an improved automatic support generation tool with lower support material consumption, as well as new functionality including labeling, native CAD file support, printer status monitoring, and printer scheduler. The software also enables access to the Open Material License (OML) which allows users to develop materials with profiles and settings optimized for their needs, manage material collections, and share materials within their organization. The Open Material License is also a way for material vendors to publish material profiles qualified by them to Origin technology.
In addition to GrabCAD Print for Origin One, the company has introduced two additional Origin One offerings. Origin One Local is a new on-premise printer configuration that includes the same functional capabilities as the Origin One. The local version provides an option for customers in segments such as government and defense or with other extreme IT restrictions to still benefit from the Origin One’s capabilities. Stratasys is also providing the Origin One ProAero air extractor system, available for office PolyJet-based 3D printers as well. The professional, plug-and-play system extracts air from the Origin One printer to ensure fumes, dust, and odor are captured and filtered out before clean air is recirculated back into the room.
GrabCAD Print for the Stratasys Origin One will be introduced at no charge for all Origin One and Origin One Dental printer customers. GrabCAD Print for Origin One, Origin One Local, and Origin One ProAero are expected to be available in H2 2022.
A live event, with replay available, that will provide more information on new manufacturing solutions from Stratasys will be held on Wednesday, May 11, and Thursday, May 12.
