3D Systems has announced 3DXpert for SOLIDWORKS 15, the latest version of the company’s 3D printing plug-in for SOLIDWORKS users. According to 3D Systems, the plug-in provides access to a complete design for additive manufacturing toolset that was created to optimize 3D printing designs.

3DXpert for SOLIDWORKS 15 is meant to provide increased design efficiency, more design freedom, and ultimately, reduced costs. The updated plug-in adds better bidirectional data transfer, an enhanced lattice development suite, and new workflows. These workflows include improved build simulation capabilities and a new power-supports feature that automates support generation for multiple geometries.

“Software is the foundation of transformative digital manufacturing solutions,” said 3D Systems’ Radhika Krishnan. “Looking at our expertise and combining that with our end-to-end software portfolio solutions and the specific needs of SOLIDWORKS designers, we realized that we could help SOLIDWORKS users streamline their digital manufacturing workflows and gain competitive advantage in several ways, such as adding design for additive manufacturing capabilities to their toolset with 3DXpert for SOLIDWORKS 15.”

The public release date for 3DXpert for SOLIDWORKS 15 is set for March 2020. A free trial of the current version of the plug-in is available from 3D Systems.
