Stratasys, a leader in polymer 3D printing, has launched its new AI-powered GrabCAD Print Pro software, with integrated quality assurance functionality from Riven, a recent Stratasys acquisition. GrabCAD Print software manages the print preparation process for Stratasys 3D printers, and the new Pro version is designed for manufacturers who need to efficiently produce end-use parts and move to production-scale volumes. It is specifically designed to improve printed-part accuracy, reduce waste, and shorten time-to-part. The software is expected to be available from 16 May for customers using Stratasys printers based on SAF and FDM technologies.

The GrabCAD Print Pro software includes all the features of GrabCAD Print standard, however, its advanced capabilities create greater opportunities for large-scale additive manufacturing with better system controls, reduced production time, and enhanced workflows. The benefits include the Warp Additive Model (WAMTM), automatic warp correction to ensure part accuracy through 3D scanning and warp correction; the ability to develop standardized manufacturing templates allowing customers to prepare builds quickly and error-free; improved per-part cost estimation, with a significant reduction in time estimating multi-customer trays; label generation, including unique coding, serialization, and placement for SAF; 3D Array to arrange parts on the Z-axis – allowing the stacking of parts to reduce build times and increase throughput; and integration with qualified best-in-class partner plug-ins.

“We are proud to deliver the best-in-class print preparation software package that reflects additive manufacturing’s expanding role on the factory floor,” said Rich Garrity, Chief Industrial Business Officer for Stratasys. “Our customers are increasingly expanding 3D printing implementation beyond prototyping to end-use parts production at scale, where consistent quality and process efficiency are truly essential. This new next-generation software is designed to help them achieve their current and future business goals and allow them to significantly, and rapidly scale up their additive manufacturing capabilities.”

For the first time, GrabCAD Print Pro also features third-party partner plug-ins, with initial plug-in partners including AlphaSTAR and Castor. AlphaSTAR provides toolpath-driven analysis and quality assessment of print parameters and toolpaths, as well as thermal process simulation to help improve design cycles and produce higher-quality parts with fewer iterations. Castor’s decision-support software automatically analyzes thousands of parts, at once, to identify the best opportunities for additive manufacturing.

“The integration with GrabCAD Print Pro enables us to offer greater value to our customers,” said Omer Blaier, co-founder, and CEO of Castor. “Through this partnership, we enable more manufacturers to seamlessly incorporate Castor into their design and production platforms, thus identify additive manufacturing opportunities more easily. We’re excited to be part of the innovative Stratasys platform.”

GrabCAD Print Pro is an annual per-user subscription licensed product and will include optional monthly updates with additional features.
