Stratasys software improves efficiency and reduces costs for additive manufacturing

Industrial Solutions


Stratasys has announced it is launching two new software packages, GrabCAD Streamline Pro and a new version of GrabCAD Print Pro for PolyJet. These packages bring the power of GrabCAD software to additional customers to help increase their efficiency and reduce costs through improved workflows.

 

The first version of GrabCAD Print Pro for FDM and SAF has increased hardware use amongst some customers by 30 to 50%. Customers can better organise the front and backend of moving and processing parts, 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; reduce costs by eliminating expensive tooling and moulds needed for traditional manufacturing; and remove geometric complexities that are not feasible with conventional methods.

 

These new software packages help customers across multiple industries, including automotive, aerospace and healthcare, take advantage of the complete Stratasys offering of solutions across hardware, software, and materials.

 

‘Our software provides essential capabilities for scaling up additive manufacturing workflows,’ said Victor Gerdes, vice president, software, Stratasys. ‘We are connecting users with a centralized platform, giving them more information to make data driven decisions and providing them with the precision and detailing that can only come from additive manufacturing. Throughput, efficiency and applications are key to manufacturing, and these GrabCAD software packages will further advance adoption of additive manufacturing by delivering measurable results that display real business value.’

 

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 reduces the effort in managing a company’s entire fleet of Stratasys 3D printers from one platform. It creates the opportunity for secure, centralised software workflows for efficient part production at any scale, 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.

 

‘Many manufacturers have struggled with integrating additive manufacturing into their manufacturing ecosystem,’ said Ryan Martin, senior director, research, ABI Research. ‘For greater adoption, they need to add enhanced software solutions that will provide them with the necessary quality controls, repeatability, and scale. Software is a key to unlocking the next steps additive takes in becoming more mainstream in overall manufacturing.’
