3D Sprint

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.

3D Sprint Features

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. 3D Sprint will also intelligently fill holes and gaps in polygon data.

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.

Submit print jobs directly from the Print Workspace, or load 3D Sprint build files created on another system directly to the printer. 3D Spirit’s accurate build time and material estimation algorithms enable efficient management of material usage and build priority decisions. The queue management tools deliver total control over job priorities, as well as accurate status updates on remaining build times.
