Simplify3D has been building up steam over the past few years with their professional 3D printing software. With loads of 3D printer support and the cleanest UI this side of manufacturing revolution, they’re not showing any sign of letting up.

The team just had a round of head-butts and high-fives with the release of the latest version of their acclaimed 3D printer software. The platform and printer support is enough to leave other options in the dust, but the features in Simplify3D 4.0 are another step in sealing their fate.

Simplify3D 4.0 3D Printing Software

There’s a lot in this release with a lot of the focus on just making the 3D printing process more enjoyable instead of a constant exercise in trial-and-error. Here’s a breakdown of some of our favorite new features:

Variable Print Settings
The new Variable Settings Wizard gives you the power to customize any setting that you want for different regions of your model. You can customize the print quality for different features, or even change the mechanical properties of the part.

Variable Extrusion Sizing
New functionality in Simplify3D will automatically adjust the amount of plastic that is extruded from the nozzle to create smaller or larger extrusions depending on the shapes you are trying to print.

Improved Sequential Printing
The sequential printing mode in Simplify3D allows you to finish printing a complete part before starting the next one. This greatly reduces the number of travel movements between parts, improving print quality. This mode now also supports multiple processes for the same model.

Improved Model Foundation
Several new features have been added to improve the adhesion between the bottom of your supports and the build platform. This can be particularly helpful for tall prints, where the supports need to be securely anchored to the bed to ensure they stay attached for the entire print.

Preview Your Process
The interactive print preview has now been updated to include more information about which exact process was used to create different parts of your model.

Seamless Process Transitions
As you change settings for different regions of your model, Simplify3D will automatically create a seamless transition between these settings. Whether you’re changing the layer height, infill, or anything else, the software ensures a smooth transition without extra solid layers or Z-scars.
