Last month we finally spoke publicly about GrabCAD Print. While it was a great feeling to let the cat out of the bag, we know that engineers only start to really care about things when they can get their hands on it. Well, buckle up. Today is that day. We're psyched to announce that the GrabCAD Beta is no longer private. Click here to get started. Keep reading to find out what the private beta participants thought about our new software.
What’s GrabCAD Print? It’s a 3D printing software solution that offers a simplified CAD-to-print workflow and makes professional 3D printing easier and more accessible.
Here’s GrabCAD’s own Marc DiGregorio with more:
It’s worth mentioning that we finished the public beta way ahead of schedule (you weren’t scheduled to see it until later this summer). We’re serious about making 3D printing easier and smarter right now.
What the private beta testers had to say
We were fortunate enough to have a bunch of companies help us get GrabCAD Print ready for public consumption. No amount of thanks is enough for their contribution and willingness to mess around with new software in an environment where time is most certainly money.
So what did the private beta users have to say about GrabCAD Print? Quite a bit, actually. Take a look.
In the 3D printing workflow, the biggest annoyance is manually going back and forth between software. With GrabCAD Print you can print your CAD assembly immediately and seamlessly. -Bob Terhune, Sr. Mechanical Engineer, 4moms
When keeping up with fast paced development, frequently things will change in the last minute. In the past when a build had to be switched to a different printer I'd have to do a clean restart - redo all of that file preparation work. With GrabCAD Print it's easy to switch between printers within a single app. That's a huge step forward in improving the workflow. -Jimmy Callaway, Design Engineer, Joe Gibbs Racing
No more cobbled together solutions
We average about 50 jobs a week for 10 different teams , scheduled to 6 different printers. I typically have at least 5 different software tools open just to prepare jobs. For an organization that prides itself on being efficient, it's tough to rely on cobbling a bunch of disconnected tools together. And that doesn't include printer scheduling or trying to provide reporting/visibility to management - that’s a whole separate manual effort I have to go through as well. –Kyle Sarty, R&D Machinist, Consumer Electronics
The user interface is a million times better than what I currently have. -Kyle Sarty, R&D Machinist, Consumer Electronics
With GrabCAD Print you get everything you need in one place. It also has a clean, user-friendly interface. -Jimmy Callaway, Design Engineer, Joe Gibbs Racing
What are you waiting for?
If that’s not enough to make you drop everything and give a GrabCAD Print a try, I don’t know what is. Head on over to grabcad.com/print to get started.
This is just the beginning. There’s so much more to come.
