We are happy to announce that Printelize now accepts 12 new 3D file formats for generating instant 3D printing quotes. Printelize Professional is an online 3D print quote software. Printelize is used globally by 3D printing service bureaus, educational institutions and internal 3D print departments to streamline the management of 3D printing order workflow. Accepting these new file types will further streamline user workflow by eliminating the step of converting every 3D file to .stl format prior to upload.
As the 3D printing market grows, industry professionals are facing a significant challenge in scaling their current processes. Particularly with tasks surrounding the quoting and delivery of 3D printing services. To overcome this problem and stay on track with the rising competition, many 3D printing service bureaus are replacing their current hodgepodge of disconnected tools with an end-to-end sales automation software. These new cloud based solutions solutions are built specifically to accelerate the success of 3D printing service bureaus. Most importantly, this is making it possible for 3D print shops to instant quote 3D printing services more efficiently.
SD3D and 3D Matter have come to an agreement in which SD3D will acquire the New York based software company, 3D Matter. 3D Matter launched the platform in 2015 in order to make it easier to visualize the performance of 3D printed materials based on empirical data derived from mechanical testing over 3000+ authentic 3D printed parts.
The acquisition includes 3D Matter as well as their flagship material optimization platform Optimatter. Optimatter is a web-based platform in which designers, engineers and researchers can optimize their 3D printed parts by ensuring the right materials and processing parameters are chosen for the specific part application.
This handbook covers how to diagnose and repair ALL desktop 3D printing issues. From A-Z, every category is covered.
3D printer maintenance is not always straightforward. This handbook will guide you through all of the 3D printing issues we have run into over thousands of hours of 3D printing time.
The physical paperback version sells on Amazon for $19.99. You can get your free digital version in .pdf format below!

Further than just explaining preferred temperature settings, we will be taking an indepth look at advanced support and infill settings, as well as many other factors that go into making a clean and successful print.
ABS is quite unique to PLA for a few reasons. The first is the difficulty to print. Small items are quite easy, and the printer can handle ABS without any issues. The problem arises when printing large parts. Since ABS has a high shrinkage rate which causes warping, we will only print larger ABS jobs with our proprietary enclosure or on our fully enclosed 3D printer. Read More

Since releasing our technology and innovation infographic a few weeks ago we have been hard at work to display some of these hardware and software advancements in action. The first to display is our revolutionary filament monitor.
The filament monitor senses the physical position of the filament to provide closed loop motion control for the extrusion axis when used with our encoded stepper motors. This provides a solution for filament jams, material shearing and under/over extrusion. This monitor also provides feedback for automated inventory control systems, including our RFID material tracking module. Read More
