BCN3D has announced its new Stratos 3D printing slicing-software, which it hopes will enable users around the world to make the most of their operations
The new Stratos software will be bundled with all BCN3D Epsilon and Sigma 3D printers as an evolution of the current BCN3D Cura software.
BCN3D say that this is a new take on the Open Source Cura software is compatible with all Epsilon and Sigma printers, with the slicing tool providing ‘robust and reliable’ features to create highly detailed and clean models and to help innovators produce accurate print models with more speed and efficiency.
In development for over a year, since the beginning of pandemic, BCN3D described the shift further into software as a ‘passion project’ with Stratos allowing it to take its ‘next steps’ in 3D printing.
“Following on from last year’s Epsilon Series release, this new endeavour has been with the intention of a shift in mindset, to create a software equal in quality to that of the BCN3D hardware and increase user’s ease of use and expand on functionalities,” said a spokesperson. “A new interface, seamless communication between BCN3D Stratos and the Epsilon and Sigma D25 product family, and new slicing features allow BCN3D to do so.”
BCN3D CEO Xavier Martínez Faneca, added: “The goal of our software development was to advance it to the same level as our high-performance hardware.
“BCN3D Stratos simplifies the printing process immensely, without compromising the quality and precision of prints. We are proud to be continuously widening the variety of configurations and settings for all levels of users, with more to come in the near future.”
