At Printed Solid, we have been using Simplify3D since March of 2014. Here is a little bit about our experience and why you may want to consider investing in this amazing piece of software.
We were finding ourselves using a number of free programs in a complex toolchain to get our prints completed to the quality level our customers demanded. We had to repair the model in one program, add efficient supports in another, plate in another, then maybe print a high density infill part on one run and a low density infill part on a second run. Further, this toolpath wasn’t necessarily the same for each printer. Some printers worked better with certain slicers. Simplify3D allowed us to do all of those things in a few minutes on one program. The slicing takes seconds for even extremely complex voronoi parts and toolpaths seem to be more efficient resulting in faster prints. The amount of time this saved was amazing.
By far the most beneficial part of Simplify3D for us has been the supports. Put support exactly where you want it. Both the ability to manually generate support as well as the clean, easily removable nature of the generated supports have enabled us to print models with nearly no post processing that would have taken hours of work with other printers or hours of CAD support design.
One of the more intimidating parts of this software is that it is not free in a world where nearly all of its competitors are. Aside from our word, you could check with any 3D Printing user forum and find large groups of users who are already happy with this software. We do plan on scheduling some online demo sessions and other events to help introduce people to the software. Please contact us if interested in participating in an event like that.
But of course… Wait, there’s more!
