We've joined forces with German-based 3D comparison platform 3YOURMIND to help you make designs created in Vectorworks 2016 3D-printing ready. As if that isn’t enough, you’ll be happy to hear that the new plugin enabling this additive process is completely free of charge.

Through 3YOURMIND's plugin, Vectorworks 2016 users can check, analyze, and repair a 3D file to optimize it for 3D printing. With one click on the 3D printing extension inside Vectorworks, the file is uploaded to the 3YOURMIND comparison tool, where it can be scaled and then previewed using the different 3D printing materials available. Finally, users can instantly compare prices for their 3D model from available vendors and order it online.

"We're thrilled to have teamed up with 3YOURMIND to offer this free plugin to our user community," said Jim Wilson, user experience manager at Vectorworks. "Now, users are just one click away from uploading their 3D files via this plugin to services that cater to all their 3D printing needs, where a wide range of materials are available to choose from and where secure file transfer with SSL is guaranteed.”
