3D Sprint

Increase Productivity with Exclusive Software for 3D Systems Plastic Printers. 3D Sprint is setting the new standard in 3D printing. Experience true productivity with exclusive additive manufacturing software for 3D Systems Plastic Printers. Prepare and optimize CAD data and then manage the additive manufacturing process on your 3D System’s plastic 3D printers. 3D Sprint delivers tools that allow you to 3D print better parts without needing high-priced software to achieve it.


3D Sprint is 3D Systems’ exclusive software for preparing and optimizing CAD data and then managing the additive manufacturing process on its plastic 3D printers. With an arsenal of additive manufacturing preparation, editing and management tools, 3D Sprint enables you to significantly decrease cost of ownership of your 3D Systems 3D printers by reducing the need for costly software seats by third party vendors.


With standard 3D data importers available, you can import 3D meshes and repair them, access a wide range of 3D editing tools, conduct immediate printability analysis, and take advantage of the built-in, intelligent software to optimize part placement and supports for your 3D printer. 3D Sprint makes it easy to become efficient with 3D printing and 3D Systems printers.


3D Sprint’s management and monitoring tools allow you to accurately estimate print time and optimize material levels and usage both before and during the print operation. Manage print queues, job priorities, and monitor printers with immediate knowledge if a technical issue is causing a problem across your local network.


The single user interface delivers the tools you need to go from design to 3D print, offering an unparalleled user experience across a diverse range of print technologies. Currently supporting MJP, and micro-SLA models, 3D Sprint is rapidly adding support for 3D Systems plastic printers.


3D Sprint Features

3D Sprint Analyze and Repair

  • Advanced and automated part geometry analysis, error correction for translation issues in CAD or STL design files as well as bad polygon geometry in 3D scans
  • For more difficult geometry repair: manual polygon editing tools to select edit and delete polygons
  • Intelligently fill holes and gaps in polygon data

Simplicity with Design Automation

  • Easy-to-use modeling wizards with automated tools
  • Design automation tools help accomplish modeling objectives for 3D printing applications, reducing the need for additional software


  • Easily scalable and flexible system to adapt to rapid material and print technology innovation
  • Provides file I/O to support industry- standard 3D file formats
  • Support for all native cad and polygonal formats will be supported in our premium version

Oriented for Success

  • A complete set of capabilities such as requirement-driven orientation, dense 3D nesting and manual orientation for fine-tuning builds
  • Intelligent tools to set orientation constraints and allow the software to automatically find the ideal solution such as fastest print time, best surface finish, or optimizing support structures
  • Automatic 3D part nesting efficiently orients and packs build platform, while high-performance algorithms ensure the tightest possible geometric packing without extended computing time
  • Automated quality check before printing will identify any risks associated with build, leveraging a 10-point part and build volume inspection that ensures success

Manage and Monitor 

  • Submit print jobs directly from the Print Workspace, or load 3D Sprint build files created on another system directly to the printer
  • Accurate build time and material estimation algorithms enable efficient management of material usage and build priority decisions
  • Queue management tools deliver total control over job priorities, as well as accurate status updates on remaining build times
  • Management of directly-connected printer and visibility of all networked or shared printers

– Windows 10

*Configurations using Virtual environments, including parallels, are not supported

CPU – Intel® and AMD® processors with a minimum 2 GHz clock speed*

Recommended:  Multiple core processors.  Hyperthreading and clock speeds above 3 GHz can be beneficial but should be paired with a good balance of cores.

RAM – Minimum: 4 GB  – Minimum: 8 GB

– Recommended: 16+ GB (Based on version of Windows used)

Hard Disk – 30 GB or more recommended

Design Recommended Graphics Cards

Recommended: Dedicated (Non-Integrated) Graphics Card that meets the criteria below:

Video Card RAM: 512MB

Video Card Framework: Must support DirectX 9.0c or above and OpenGL 3.0 or above

Series: NVIDIA Quadro

Design X, Verify, and XOS Recommended Graphics Cards

Recommended: Dedicated (Non-Integrated) Graphics Card that meets the criteria below:

Video Card RAM: 2GB or More

Video Card Framework: Must support OpenGL 4.0 or above

Series: NVIDIA Quadro or NVIDIA GeForce

If you use the AMD Radeon series, the panning or rotation in the application might not operate correctly. To solve this problem, uncheck the Use Custom Settings option under 3D > Standard Settings in the Catalyst Control Center dialog box and move the slider to the left.

It is recommended to set the anti-aliasing value lower than 8. Otherwise, detection of 3D edges may not work properly or there may be problems with panning or rotating within the application. If anti-aliasing is disabled, the edges and boundaries of shaded objects can be jagged if displayed at angles close to 0 or 90 degrees.

Control, Wrap, Studio, Capture, and Design Direct Recommended Graphics Cards

Recommended: Dedicated (Non-Integrated) Graphics Card that meets the criteria below:

Video Card RAM: 2GB or More

Video Card Framework: Must support OpenGL 4.0 or above

Series: NVIDIA Quadro

Using a non-recommended card may result in random crashing, graphical anomalies, or data corruption. Use of any non-recommended configuration at your own risk.
