The Print3D plug-in adds a new menu item called Print3D to the File menu of your CAD application. Just like the Print command, the Print3D dialogue box pops up. Instantly, the software gives you guaranteed prototype quotes on every component you have open in CAD. Just like you can alter the page setup on a document, the Print3D interface lets you easily change the orientation of your part for 3D printing, select process, material, finish, delivery options – and see your price change in real time.
