3D Systems has rolled out 3D Sprint 2.0, a print management and print optimisation software developed for the company's plastic 3D printers.

The software, according to the company, streamlines 3D printing workflows by reducing the need for users to divide projects among multiple software programs. This results in a simplified and more productive printing process.

New features within the software allow users to perform advanced operations, including part splitting, cutting and keying; offsetting, shelling and thickening, as well as part grouping, triangle reduction and part quality checks. 3D Systems printer management tools within the platform facilitate firmware updates, system checks and log retrieval to help users efficiently streamline processes while monitoring and managing print queues and materials. 3D Sprint 2.0 accommodates .stl, .obj and .ply file inputs as well as a variety of polygon and neutral CAD formats.

3D Sprint 2.0 supports and will immediately ship with all ProJet 1200 and ProJet MJP 2500 Series printers. Support for other 3D Systems plastics printers as well as premium software levels with advanced editing and additional CAD format support will be announced at a later date.
