“Simplify3D software has made it possible to go from ZERO 3D printing knowledge to an object in a student’s hand in two class periods. We’ve been printing monograms, necklace pendants, logos, tools, Christmas ornaments, coasters, robot parts, and much more. It’s great to have a student work on a model design, and start printing in under 60 minutes.”
Steven Kuensting – STEM Coordinator for Nerinx High School
Focus on Teaching, Not Tinkering
Simplify3D includes hundreds of pre-configured 3D printer profiles so that you can achieve exceptional results right out-of-the-box with no tinkering required.
Project Planning Made Easy
Accurately plan your next lesson before you start 3D printing using the built-in statistics that show you how long each print will take, the amount of material it will use, and more.
Simplify3D automatically saves every project into a single file making it easy to organize your successful print settings and ensure that you achieve consistent results every time.
Learn how different factors affect your part and identify potential improvements before sending it to the 3D printer. The print preview mode includes several coloring options, real-time updates, and animation controls.
Manually control your 3D printer and learn how your machine communicates with the software throughout the print.
Take advantage of built-in-tools designed to intuitively help you setup your 3D printer, print with multiple materials and colors, optimize the settings for your part, and more.
