Single software solution developed to accelerate additive manufacturing workflows for 3D Systems’ plastic 3D printers

ROCK HILL, S.C., Dec. 19, 2016 -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today the release of 3D Sprint 2.0, a productivity-enhancing print management and print optimization software developed for 3D Systems’ plastic 3D printers.

In line with the company’s commitment to providing end-to-end digital manufacturing solutions, 3D Sprint 2.0 streamlines 3D printing workflows by reducing the need for users to divide projects among multiple software programs. This results in a simplified and more productive printing process, saving users of 3D Systems’ plastic printers time and money.

3D Sprint 2.0

3D Sprint 2.0 delivers a wide range of design tools specific to additive manufacturing with 3D Systems’ plastic 3D printers.

3D Sprint 2.0 delivers a wide range of design tools specific to additive manufacturing that enable users to manipulate, edit and prepare 3D models for printing directly from the software interface. New features within the software allow users to perform advanced operations, including part splitting, cutting and keying; offsetting, shelling and thickening; part grouping, triangle reduction and part quality checks. 3D Systems printer management tools within the platform facilitate firmware updates, system checks and log retrieval to help users efficiently streamline processes while monitoring and managing print queues and materials. 3D Sprint 2.0 accommodates .stl, .obj and .ply file inputs as well as a variety of polygon and neutral CAD formats.

“3D Sprint 2.0 is the fastest and most reliable user interface we’ve ever used,” says Ian Sayers, 3D Printer and Scanner Sales, Hawk Ridge Systems, a 3D Systems partner. “Having a single piece of intelligent software that can create estimates on numerous virtual machines makes our operations more nimble, and the level of interoperability sets a new standard for what people will expect from 3D printing interfaces in the future.”

“Our goal with 3D Sprint 2.0 is to make 3D printing in plastic easier and faster than ever before,” says Ilan Erez, Senior Vice President, General Manager, Software, 3D Systems. “Having a single software platform for 3D Systems' plastic printers helps our customers achieve greater productivity and improved results.”

3D Sprint 2.0 supports and will immediately ship with all ProJet® 1200 and ProJet MJP 2500 Series printers. Support for other 3D Systems plastics printers as well as premium software levels with advanced editing and additional CAD format support will be announced at a later date.

3D Systems Corp. (DDD), the additive manufacturing pioneer, believes the industry is on the verge of an inflection point in which it will generate volume and profits by “connecting prototyping to manufacturing.” Brean Capital’s Ananda Baruah, who has a hold rating on the tech company’s stock, highlights 3D Systems’ healthcare business as a market differentiator and driver of growth moving forward, reports Benziga.

Healthcare as a Successful Vertical

After a healthcare event hosted by the Rock Hill, S.C.-based company, the Brean analyst noted that 3D Systems’ healthcare business accounts for 27% of the firm’s overall sales, with an organic growth rate of 10% to 20% throughout 2015.Wrote Baruah in an analyst note: “We came away understanding 1) that the HC business itself could be in the process of growing into a legitimately material business on its own, and 2) more fully grasping DDD's strategy of leveraging the holistic platform capabilities of the HC vertical by applying it to the other target verticals of aerospace, automotive, and general industrial.”

Analyst: 3D 'Better Positioned Than Market Estimates'

After the 3D-printing industry boomed a few years back, 3D Systems and long-time rival Stratasys Ltd. (SSYS) experienced a significant slump and lack demand in the consumer segment. The current 3D-printing industry revival has been supercharged by the entrance of larger firms HP Inc. (HPQ) and General Electric Co. (GE) as the industry moves towards 3D printing for industrial manufacturing.

Baruah believes that 3D Systems is better positioned to gain amid this large-scale industry transition than the market estimates, as the firm works on developing “end-to-end solutions and ecosystems across verticals.” The analyst indicates that 3D Systems’ healthcare vertical is a prime example of how the firm can cultivate a vertical businesses and apply the platform to other key verticals moving forward, such as aerospace, automotive, defense and general industrial.
