BEESOFT is the 3D printing software package from BEEVERYCREATIVE, a company known for their sleek, easy to use BEETHEFIRST device and its ecosystem of related products.
And now there’s a major update to BEESOFT.
This 3D printing software works with most BEEVERYCREATIVE 3D printers, and it’s open-source due to it being adapted from a group of other open-source projects such as ReplicatorG and the Cura Engine.
The company has been rather busy lately with the release of four new printer versions and a new device – BEECONNECT-wireless – an open-source solution for wireless, networked 3D printing. The BEECONNECTED device is a Raspberry Pi-based solution designed entirely by the open source community, and all the files and documentation for it can be found on GitHub.
The latest software release, 3.11.6, features a large list of improvements and bug fixes.
The announcement of the introduction of BEETHEFIRST+, a new 3D printer model which includes four BEE Printers and one BEE device, took place in May, and the BEETHEFIRST+ includes internal hardware improvements and a powerful extruder that works with all heated bed free types of filament. that are currently available on the market.
As for this latest software update, BEEVERYCREATIVE says BEESOFT users can now export Gcode, print with generated Gcode from Cura and Simplify3D and use the package in Portuguese, Spanish and German.
They add that improvements to their software presentation and UX now allow users to access BEESOFT without minimizing other running applications, take advantage of improved usability features and an easier process to import models into the work area.
Imports can now be handled in three different ways: directly via the “Import Model” button, from the main menu or with a “Crtl+I” keyboard shortcut. Those models are now imported into the workspace without overlapping.
Changes to scaling features like the addition of a “scale to max” which will scale a model up to the maximum possible value, relative resizing which is now absolute resizing and model scaling in one or two selected axes are now possible as well.
In terms of simplified usability, BEESOFT now includes a wizard to aid in extruder nozzle cleaning functions and one to aid in extruder nozzle replacement.
As for bug fixes, a scale error state has been addressed, the “Cancel” while printing is now fully responsive, models are now imported to the work area and placed in the center of the stage, and BEESOFT now includes corrected info on the nozzle size of their BEETHEFIRST printer.
The open-source BEESOFT package is available for Windows, MacOS and Linux 64-bit systems. Have you ever used a BEETHEFIRST 3D printer or BEESOFT software? Let us know in the BEESOFT Updates forum thread on 3DPB.com.
