The CAD software SOLIDWORKS by Dassault Systemes has partnered with Korean 3D printer manufacturer Sindoh.
Sindoh has developed a full integration so users can 3D print directly from SOLIDWORKS. Users can add a local or network printer just like a 2D printer and have access to a dedicated command bar for Sindoh’s 3DWox desktop 3D printers. There they can set print quality, slice the model, add support structures automatically and access many other functions.
Once the print job is sent off, the printing progress can be monitored in the task panel on the right hand side. It will also give you information on the estimated printing time and the amount of filament needed. Additionally, a camera feed can be monitored via a smartphone.
Sindoh is a well established Korean company on the market of 2D printers and has released the 3DWox desktop 3D printer last year.
The printer features a closed chamber, a heated print bed, a colour touch LCD control panel, automatic filament loading, WiFi/USB/Flash connectivity, interior LED lights as well as a camera. Moreover, users benefit from an assisted bed levelling feature. In a print area of 210 x 220 x 200 mm users can create objects out of ABS, PLA, HIPS or Nylon with a layer hight between 0.07 and 0.4 mm. The 3DWox printer is available for around $1.300.
