Simplify3D Launches Version 3.1 and Printer Compatibility Tool

June 06, 2016 — Continuing towards the goal of a universal software platform for 3D printing, Simplify3D has released version 3.1 of its popular 3D printing software. Version 3.1 expands upon the industry-leading printer compatibility and reliability that users have come to expect from Simplify3D, adding support for many new printers including the latest lineup of da Vinci machines from XYZprinting.

As the industry continues to expand, many customers are now buying their second or third 3D printer.  Many of these machines come with different software programs, which can make the process of owning and operating multiple 3D printers difficult and time-consuming.  These challenges are even more apparent for schools that provide training on multiple 3D printers, and businesses striving for efficient production across their entire workforce.  Simplify3D solves this problem by providing a universal software solution that can communicate with all of their different 3D printers.

Version 3.1 Update Available Now

Our latest software release adds support for over 30 new printers including the latest da Vinci printers from XYZprinting, the LulzBot TAZ 6, Ultimaker 2+, FlashForge Finder, PowerSpec Ultra, BCN3D Sigma, Raise3D, Qidi Technology, and Geeetech printers. In addition to expanded compatibility, the update also includes several new features such as enhanced USB communication with real-time error checking, improved slicing for error-prone meshes, and numerous stability and performance improvements.
