Dallas, Texas – Feb. 23, 2018 – 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. The service is offered to users as a monthly subscription. As part of the acquisition, SD3D is excited to announce that they will be making the Optimatter software even more accessible by providing full access to the Optimatter web interface free of charge to individual end-users.
Founder and former CEO of 3D Matter, Arthur Sebert, states “OptiMatter is a very important tool for the 3D printing industry that 3D Matter created to help users understand the properties of their printed parts. I am very happy that OptiMatter is going to be integrated into SD3D’s robust offering of automation tools because OptiMatter’s data can now be connected to the rest of the 3D printing process. That’s what was missing for OptiMatter users so far.”
SD3D will be continuing the Optimatter service, allowing current customers to continue using the features they have come accustomed to, all while making full access to the Optimatter software free of charge for individual accounts. Furthermore, SD3D plans to integrate the Optimatter platform into their overall suite of automation software for 3D printing – providing added benefits to both the existing users of Optimatter along with users of other SD3D software products.
