Insight Software for Stratasys 3D Printers

INSIGHT SOFTWARE

OPTIMIZE BUILD OUTPUT FOR 3D PRINTING

Insight software prepares your CAD program’s STL output for 3D manufacturing on a Fortus machine by automatically slicing and generating support structures and material extrusion paths. For maximum control, users can manually edit parameters that determine the look, strength, and precision of parts as well as the speed and material use of the FDM process.  

  • Optimize build orientation for maximum strength and smoothest surface finish
  • Customize supports for fast, easy removal and best use of materials
  • Program pauses into the build for any reason, such as to embed hardware or circuitry
  • Manipulate tool paths for advanced control over part properties

Included with Insight is Control Center. This sophisticated software application communicates with user workstations and Fortus systems, to manage jobs and monitor production status. Design, engineering, and manufacturing teams can network and share 3D manufacturing capacity to maximize efficiency and throughput.

*Compatible with GrabCAD Print for use with job reports, scheduling, and remote monitoring.
