The latest generation of the Z-SUITE 3D software for 3D design and printing is out for testing. The software is currently in a Beta testing phase for those who want to try it out and help the company iron out bugs in the software.
3D printer manufacturer Zortrax is inviting users to test the latest features in the beta version of its Z-SUITE software.
Z-SUITE BETA will allow printer owners to try out a range of updates and improvements on features from the previous version and also new features included in the new version of the print management and slicing software.
The software also improves printing with Z-ULTRAT Plus, Z-PLA and Z-PETG filaments in double-extrusion mode on the dual extrusion M300 Dual and Inventure 3D printers.
Additional new features for both machines include hybrid supports whereby a portion of the support structure adjacent to the model is printed with soluble support filament, while the primary build material is used for the remainder.
Automatic support generation algorithms have also been optimized to enable higher quality print outcomes. For the Zortrax Inkspire 3D printer, it is now possible to edit and generate separate supports for every model placed on the working platform.
“We are launching Z-SUITE BETA to fulfill the expectations of Zortrax printers’ users. We want to customize new software features to meet the real needs of the community of users of our devices and engage them in the company’s development and enhance the process of implementing changes in our software,” says Rafał Tomasiak, Zortrax CEO
Users can apply to become BETA testers via the Zortrax website where the latest version of Z-SUITE can be downloaded. When bugs or errors are found, testers are invited to use the “Report a bug” option.
