MatterControl For 3D Printing Software

MatterControl is a free, open-source, all-in-one 3D printing software package that lets you design, slice, organize, and manage your 3D prints. With this software, you can design your parts from scratch using the Design Tools, or visit the Design Apps to browse existing projects.

You can also slice your designs using a variety of advanced settings for customized support generation, software bed leveling, and integrated controls for dual extrusion using powerful 64-bit processing. When you have all the variables managed, you can print straight from the app – no need for multiple programs – MatterControl does it all.


MatterControl Software For PC

Download, install and launch the free 3D printing software. Using the configuration wizard, select your printer and an empty bed to connect to, and configuration will be completed. You can then add the objects which you will eventually print.

The nicely designed interface basically provides a panel of folders – Design Apps, Downloads, History, Library and SDCard (if applicable) – and basic shapes called ‘primitives’ at the left of the workspace and a tools pane at right.
