"This collaboration with 3YOURMIND offers our users completely new possibilities. The 3D printing of a Solid Edge file is now easily possible with just a few clicks,” says Dan Staples. And he adds: "On the platform, users can choose between a wide range of materials and choose their desired material properties like biocompatible, for example, or materials suitable for rapid prototyping. This will help our users print their 3D files to the highest standards. "
With the free plugin, Solid Edge users can use a full range of 3D design features from within the CAD system and upload the finished file with just one click to the 3YOURMIND online portal. Here they can compare various 3Dprinting providers and materials options, with real-time price information for each material type. The printability-analysis and optimization functions of the plugin assure that users not to waste time and money with unprintable designs. Therefore it vastly improves user-experience and the speed at which 3D projects can be processed. In addition, the cloud capabilities of ST9 are providing faster and more flexible deployment options, improving user access, and remote collaboration across design teams.

3YOURMIND offers intelligent 3D printing solutions for industry and architecture. Their comparison tool (on 3yourmind.com) presents a convenient way of ordering a 3D printed model of a prototype online. Users can upload a 3D file, which is automatically repaired and optimized to achieve a better 3Dprint result (increasing the likelihood of being printed correctly on the first attempt, saving time and money). Afterwards, the user can compare prices of various 3D printing services and choose different materials. The clients and partners of 3YOURMIND are DAX30 groups and 3D printing suppliers. In April 2016, 3YOURMIND was awarded with the German Innovation Prize.
