Airwolf 3D is partnering with MatterHackers to include MatterControl Pro with its printers, pre-calibrated with Airwolf settings. Those who already own an Airwolf will be able to download the software from the Airwolf web site.
"Desktop 3D printers right now are seen as a very technical product. We hope to change that by eliminating the steep learning curve," said Erick Wolf, Airwolf 3D's President. "With MatterControl the entire process is simple, you can literally drag and drop your 3D designs and then hit 'start.'"
MatterControl has reached version 0.90 and has added crucial new features – automatic calibration and the ability to print on a bed that isn't level. This, combined with full email and phone support, a file library, job queuing and the option to use a simple or advanced interface puts MatterControl in a league with the proprietary software solutions employed by 3D Systems, MakerBot, Afinia and UP!, even though it can serve open source-based hardware.
"We are pleased to partner with Airwolf 3D on this initial release of MatterControl Pro. Both of our companies are driven by a consuming desire to create great products that put the power of 3D printing into the hands of individuals," said Lars Brubaker, CEO of MatterHackers.
Airwolf 3D will be hosting an open house for customers and colleagues at its new 5,200 square foot facility at 5:30 pm, this Friday, September 27th. Airwolf's new location is in Costa Mesa, California, near the intersection of the 73, 55 and 405 Freeways and less than one mile from the John Wayne International Airport. Those wishing to attend the event can RSVP on Airwolf's site.
