Raise3D completes its “all-in-one” software portfolio with ideaMaker Library launch

Desktop printer manufacturer Raise3D has just launched its new ideaMaker Library software, the final piece of the all-in-one portfolio designed to integrate all stages of the 3D printing workflow.

Adding ideaMaker Library into the mix

The new library webpage can be used to access pre-determined slicing profiles (.bin) for a wide range of printers and filaments from both Raise3D and other third party manufacturers. It also serves to store model files (.stl) and sliced files (.gcode) which can be downloaded and imported into ideaMaker – Raise3D’s own slicing software. Utilizing this setup, users can be sure they are always using optimized print parameters regardless of the model.

Once file preparation is complete, the gcode can be uploaded into Raise3D’s own print management software, RaiseCloud, with a single click by logging in through the ideaMaker interface. The cloud enables users to remotely send prints to their fleet of 3D printers and monitor the process in real time. Once initiated, the prints can be controlled through both the website and the handy app.

Edward Feng, CEO at Raise3D, explains: “We keep working towards the goal of delivering an all-in-one solution that increases productivity. With ideaMaker Library as a new valuable asset, and the combination of ideaMaker and RaiseCloud, we are glad we can now provide this full solution and smooth workflow that will be a game changer for the manufacturing industry.”

Growing with the industry

Raise3D believes that as the industry grows and develops, customers’ needs follow suit. Now more than ever before, productivity and ease-of-use are some of the most sought-after features, and this is what the all-in-one portfolio aims to cater to. With 3D printing rising in sophistication and popularity, Raise3D expects its software portfolio to be needed in companies, schools, and teams within the manufacturing industry.

Over the course of the last year, Raise3D has launched a number of products to cement its presence in both the hardware and software sectors of additive manufacturing. Announced at Hannover Messe 2019, the company’s RaiseFactory 3D printing systems are based on the previously released Pro2 series 3D printers. With the release, Raise3D aimed to provide a “flexible manufacturing” system for its customers, focusing on ease-of-use, versatility, and scalability. More recently, at TCT Show 2019, the company launched its “industrial-grade” E2 3D printer, featuring an IDEX system and multi-purpose capabilities.
