CASTOR, an Israeli software company that enables manufacturers to reduce costs utilizing the benefits of industrial 3D printing, and Ultimaker, a leading 3D printer-manufacturing company based in The Netherlands, entered a partnership and launched a new integration between two of their leading 3D printing solutions – CASTOR’s part screening software and Ultimaker’s Digital Factory.

Miguel Calvo, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Ultimaker said: “The integration of CASTOR with Ultimaker’s Platform allows users to directly export parts from CASTOR to the Ultimaker Digital Factory and seamlessly complete the process of 3D printing in-house. The connectivity saves effort, complexity, and time spent switching between tools, streamlining the whole process, and bringing it all under one roof. Our cooperation with the CASTOR team helps organizations unlock the potential of 3D printing in-house with immediate benefit”.

The integration enables users to scan all of their parts at once, estimate the printability of parts with their Ultimaker printer, calculate the costs and lead time, and ultimately produce the parts directly with Ultimaker’s Digital Factory.

“This is great news for Ultimaker printers’ users, which now have a tool to help them find new business cases and discover opportunities to save costs with their existing hardware”, said Omer Blaier, Co-Founder & CEO of CASTOR. “We are proud to have developed the capabilities which allow us to integrate CASTOR to leading AM companies and workflow software, and we look forward to more collaborations that will help streamline the utilization of 3D printing benefits”.

CASTOR was founded in 2017 with the goal of helping manufacturers to increase profitability by using industrial 3D printing. CASTOR solves the challenge of identifying where, when, and how to use 3D printing to reduce costs. The company is backed by Evonik, Xerox and has partnerships with Siemens Digital Industries Software, Ultimaker, and Nexa3D.
