Berlin based enterprise 3YOURMIND GmbH expands its range of 3D printing software applications. As of today, there is a free plugin for Onshape (online CAD program), with which the user can correct and optimize their CAD data for 3D printing. Onshape is the first complete cloud-based CAD software platform; designers and engineers therefore require no software installation on their computers and can create 3D objects in their web browsers - even having multiple users working simultaneously on a project.
"This collaboration with 3YOURMIND offers our users completely new possibilities. The 3D printing of an Onshape file is now easily possible with just a few clicks,” says Joe Dunne, Onshape’s Director of Developer Relations. "The range of features and materials is exceptional and will help our users print their 3D files to the highest standards."
With the free plugin, Onshape 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. With that, they can compare various 3D-printing providers and materials options, with real-time price information for each material type. The printability analysis and optimization functions of the plugin, as well as the direct connection to the 3YOURMIND portal, vastly improves the user experience and speed at which 3D projects can be processed.
For more information on the plugin, visit the Onshape App Store.
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 3D-print result (increasing the likelihood that it will be printed correctly on the first attempt - saving time and money). Afterwards, the user can compare prices of various 3D printing services - and choose from different materials. The clients and partners of 3YOURMIND are DAX-30 groups and 3D printing suppliers. In April 2016, 3YOURMIND was awarded with the German Innovation Prize.
About Onshape Inc
Onshape is the first and only full-cloud 3D CAD system that lets everyone on a design team work together using any web browser, phone, or tablet. Onshape was built from scratch for the way today’s engineers, designers and manufacturers really work, giving them secure and simultaneous access to a single master version of their CAD data without the hassles of software licenses or copying files. Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Onshape is a new venture-backed company that includes key members of the original SolidWorks team plus elite engineers from the cloud, data security and mobile industries.
