A straightforward 3D print helper that allows you to create custom models and take full control of your device, even during the printing phase

When 3D printing first appeared, people used to spend a lot of time and money to acquire the desired models. Nowadays, all that was considerably simplified thanks to the numerous open source projects that allow you to generate models in just a few steps. MatterControl is a lightweight utility that can lend you a hand with designing, organizing and managing 3D models and get the most out of your 3D printer.

Works with both 2D and 3D models

The setup is a quick and uneventful operation that does not need any special attention. The program comes with a modern and sleek interface and includes a basic tutorial that can show you where to find the most important functions. Before getting started, it is advisable that you first register your printer, as the app allows you to connect to it automatically. There is no limit to the number of printers that can be added, so the tool may be suitable for a small business as well.
As you probably hinted, the app allows you to work with some predefined 2D and 3D models, but you can also employ models that you created before or start from scratch. Regardless of the choice, the models can be edited, grouped and ungrouped, transformed, duplicated, so on and so forth.

Allows you to make adjustments while printing

Once you preview the model and are happy with how it turned out, you can proceed to printing it. You will be happy to learn that the tool comes with advanced features that permit you to control all printer's functions and even make some adjustments during the printing phase. For instance, you can use Z+ or Z- buttons to simply adjust the height of the nuzzle.
