CASTOR and Ultimaker announce the integration of CASTOR’s part screening software to Ultimaker’s Digital Factory
Castor, Israeli software company that enables manufacturers to reduce costs utilizing the benefits of industrial 3D printing, and Ultimaker, leading 3D printer-manufacturing company based in the Netherlands, announced a partnership and launched a new integration between two of their leading 3D printing solutions – CASTOR’s part screening software and Ultimaker’s Digital Factory.
"The integration of CASTOR with Ultimaker’s Platform allows users to directly export parts from CASTOR to the Ultimaker Digital Factory and seamlessly complete the process of 3D printing in-house. The connectivity saves effort, complexity and time spent switching between tools, streamlining the whole process and bringing it all under one roof. Our cooperation with the CASTOR team helps organizations unlock the potential of 3D printing in-house with immediate benefit" says Miguel Calvo, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Ultimaker.
The integration enables users to scan all of their parts at once, estimate the printability of parts with their Ultimaker printer, calculate the costs and lead time, and ultimately produce the parts directly with Ultimaker’s Digital Factory.
“This is great news for Ultimaker printers’ users, which now have a tool to help them find new business cases and discover opportunities to save costs with their existing hardware.” Says Omer Blaier, Co-Founder & CEO of CASTOR. “We are proud to have developed the capabilities which allow us to integrate CASTOR to leading AM companies and workflow software, and we look forward to more collaborations that will help streamline the utilization of 3D printing benefits”.
