Rize updates, expands software for printer
Rize One This 3-D printer from Rize is used to make end-use production parts, prototypes, fixtures and jigs. It incorporates both fused-deposition modeling and piezo-jetting technology and can print multi-material parts. At NPE2018, it will be in the booth of distributor Cimquest Inc., Branchburg, N.J.
What’s new? Version 1.2.4 of Rize Software. Additionally, Rize has created an add-in for SolidWorks CAD modeling software. The add-in automatically transfers files from SolidWorks to the Rize slicing software without the need to export and import files.
Benefits Improved functionality. The new software makes it easier for users to release supports from curved surfaces on parts. The add-in makes it possible to print directly to Rize 3-D printers from within SolidWorks. This makes it faster and easier for SolidWorks users to utilize additive manufacturing; it also reduces the need to pre-process and post-process 3-D printed parts.
