FlashForge Users Now Offered More 3D Printing Options with Simplify3D Partnership
Simplify3D is one of the most popular brands of 3D slicing software, and released its most recent version less than a year ago. It’s compatible with a wide range of 3D printers, and now users of FlashForge 3D printers will benefit from the comprehensive software’s upgraded package thanks to a new partnership between the two companies. The partnership enables FlashForge to offer new hardware and software combinations for professional users, as Simplify3D software will now be offered along with FlashForge Dreamer and Creator Pro 3D printers.
“We’re pleased to provide new software options for two of the most popular FlashForge machines,” said Clayton Webster, CEO of Simplify3D. “Both companies have worked together to offer a seamless experience, allowing professional customers to opt for the upgraded software solution right from the start.”
Simplify3D has worked with FlashForge in the past, and supports many earlier FlashForge models, so owners of those 3D printers can also take advantage of the upgraded software. Overall, Simplify3D is compatible with more than 400 3D printer models, working with manufacturers around the world to provide its numerous options. Users of the Dreamer and Creator Pro will now be able to benefit from new functions such as:
- Variable print settings
- Customizable supports
- Mesh repair tools
- Innovative dual extrusion workflows
- A wide range of print customization options
FlashForge is one of the more mature companies in the 3D printing industry; in fact, it was one of the first to begin offering desktop 3D printers. The Dreamer and the Creator Pro have been popular models, each winning multiple awards and consistently ranking high on 3D printer rating lists. The combination of FlashForge hardware and Simplify3D software is a powerful one, and will allow users of FlashForge 3D printers to have more control over the 3D printing process, allowing for new applications and better print quality.
“We are excited about this new strategic partnership,” said Webster. “Pairing the right hardware and software continues to be a major challenge in additive manufacturing industry, and we look forward to continued work with FlashForge in the future.”
The new FlashForge and Simplify3D partnership represents the meeting of two popular brands in their respective areas of the 3D printing industry. Users appreciate Simplify3D for its versatility, working with so many different 3D printer models in the desktop sector, as well as, as its name suggests, its simplicity. It can easily manage multiple 3D printers and is a commonly used program by engineers and other professional users who need to manage complex workflows with ease. Simplify3D streamlines the 3D printing process while also providing numerous options for customization, allowing it to offer an all-around positive 3D printing experience.
The new Simplify3D product offerings are now available directly from FlashForge’s website.
