What’s New In 3D Printing at SOLIDWORKS World 2018

Article by Eissa Ahmad updated January 31, 2018


Next week at the Los Angeles Convention Center, SOLIDWORKS World will be celebrating its 20th anniversary. The 4-day event will be packed with innovation, ideas, and knowledge revolving around 3D design. This year, the event will boast over 5,000 attendees and more than 200 information sessions. DS SOLIDWORKS will be broadcasting a live webcast of select sessions you won’t want to miss. There will be plenty happening this year, including 3D Printing SOLIDWORKS World announcements from Javelin partner Stratasys. 

3D Printing SOLIDWORKS World 2018


Stratasys will be showcasing many interesting things this year, including software workflow improvements, interactive demos, new updates regarding SDM, and two 3D printers from their FDM and PolyJet lineups. The F123 Series of 3D printers features a simple and fast workflow, as well as the ability to print 3D models directly from SOLIDWORKS without the need for file conversion. Explore the convenience of office-friendly F123 Series printers, as well as how GrabCAD Print and SOLIDWORKS work better together for rapid prototyping.

On the show floor, you can view cutting edge solutions in rapid prototyping and design with GrabCAD Voxel Print. With Voxel Print, users can set different characteristics to every material in their print. This opens a world of possibilities with material compositions and parameters. This year, you can experience what that feels like by checking out the Agilus interactive kiosk, including a few 3D print models and demos.  

Furthermore, you can learn about all the work Stratasys has done for biomedical companies, Olympic teams and more with various stories and press releases on deck.
