It is one of the best tools used in the 3D printing industry for home based printers. The software is available free of charge. The company also includes a very detailed instruction manual on their website. The level of customization possible with MatterControl is astounding. Beginners of 3D printing should definitely start with this application. It is quite user-friendly.
Updates to MatterControl
The latest version of their software, the MatterControl T10 was released at the CES 2016. The physical device is more accurate and allows for wireless printing. It also has a higher resolution and is a bit bigger. The most interesting part about this new software is that users can turn 2D images into 3D.
Another great feature is that the interface has become more user-friendly. Even users who are beginners will find it quite easy to work with MatterControl T10. Although the company has yet to release the product, reception from the customers has been warm. Other new features included in their latest device are cloud services. Now, users, have access to a wide array of templates from the cloud.
The MatterControl has really been a revolution. The level of functionality it places in the hands of users is quite important. It will definitely be a major player in the development of 3D printing. It’s also a perfect compliment for the best 3d printer
Still opportunity in 3D printing
MatterHackers has created a niche for itself in 3D printing. This is a sign that there are still numerous opportunities available in this industry. Anyone who is interested in 3D printing does not necessarily have to try to create a printer. What is important is to build on the works of others to help revolutionize the industry. This is what will take 3D printing to new soaring heights. Overall, MatterControl is a very effective solution for 3 D technology.
Last year It’s been an honor/privilege speaking at the following conferences:
- Flex Camp Wall Street – 11/15/2010 – My session: Essential Eclipse plug-ins and tools for Flash Builder developers
- Adobe MAX – 10/23/2010 – My session: Essential Eclipse plug-ins and tools for Flash Builder developers
- RIA Unleashed – 11/11/2010 – My session: AIR workshop

- CFUnited – 7/28/2010 – My session: Security Threats in Flex Apps & Flex Data Binding Pitfalls 10 common misuse mistakes
- FlashAndTheCity event organizer & speaker – 5/14/2010
Additionally I attended Microsoft MIX 2010 thanks to an invite from@thedavedev
Conference season is just around the corner again and this year I am already confirmed to speak at four conferences as well as likely to attend/speak at three more conferences. This year I feel that it’s not as clear as in previous years who’s the “cool kid” on the block and where everything is heading. I believe that although Flash is still used heavily by many companies as the prefer technology when developing certain applications for the web/desktop such as video, charting and others, it did lost some of it’s “cool kid” status. I believe that this year more than ever it’s crucial to attend conferences in order to better understand which way the wind blows.
