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 software is primarily targeted towards academics and engineers looking to optimize 3D print settings. Optimatter simplifies the process of finding the best 3D print settings and materials for demanding end-use applications.
Optimatter – 3D Printing Material Optimization Software
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 print settings. Optimatter ensures 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.”
Features – 3D Print Material Forecast and Optimize
Optimatter provides two main functions for conducting 3D printing materials research. The first is Forecast, which allows the user to dive deep into the empirical data of specific 3D printing materials. This search can be done across different 3D printing processes including FDM, SLA, SLS, and others. The second function is Optimize. This allows the user to provide specific application parameters about their application. As a result, Optimatter will provide a list of 3D printing materials and settings that will conform to the application requirements.
SD3D will be continuing the Optimatter service indefinitely. This will allow current customers to continue using the features they have come accustomed to 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. This will provide added benefits to both the existing users of Optimatter along with users of other SD3D software products.
