Introducing Kudo3D Print Job Software

Posted by Kudo3D (Creator)

Dear Backers,

Before introducing the new software,  we would like to give some updates.  The printers to Europe are being mailed by the fulfillment center now.   We are also working on updating our website to add more information about Bean and also the online shop.    As for the most updated manual,  please visit

There are many video links in the manual to assist in learning.    Please make sure to browse through the manual and the printing guide before using the printer.  If you have a technical problem,  please check the FAQ first in the last section of the manual.      If you can not solve the problem,  please send an email to us.   

The new Kudo3D print job software has the following features

  • The slicing speed is 10 to 20 times faster than the free slicers. 
  • Integrating hollowing, support generation and slicing all into one. 
  • Has a variety of support structures to meet the needs for Dental, Medical, Jewelry, Engineering, and Art applications. 
  • Easy to adjust the positions, shape and sizes of the generated supports. 
  • Can select specific regions to add supports. 
  • Can add infills for hollowed structures. 
  • Slicer has anti-aliasing function. 
  • A mask wizard to equalize the intensity of the light if you need even more precision. 
  • Permanent license with free updates.
  • Can install on two PCs.

Here is an introductory video.

      I just got my PayPal payment of $81 for shipping returned. How shall I pay?

      I have ordered this software additionally and have been paid with shipping fee. I received the package, but I can not find the license code anywhere. please contact me.

      Hello, is there a special e-mail address where I can send my interest as a supporter to the software? I already wrote through the contact form on the Kudo3D homepage but never got an answer.
      Thanks in advance, I am looking forward to your reply.

      @Kudo3D we really need some demo access to test if we can run this on VMs or Linux Wine. Not everyone will have Windows. Also is this software compatible with WanHao, AnyCubic, eSun, Moai, etc? Makes it more appealing if I can use it for all my printers.

      Before buying the software. make sure your printer works. A lot of DOA printers. check out Facebook groups or Kudo3d Forum. Mine broke in two weeks and they don't want to do anything.

      I agree with everyone. First they FAQ stated $35 for US shipping and mine was more than double that. The FAQ stated it worked with third party slicers, but they were developing their own. No mention this software would cost extra. In the video they claim you just pour and send the object to the printer and you are printing. In fact it stated all you need is a web enabled device like a phone, tablet, etc. Every printer I've looked at from the $150 to the $10000 printer comes with the software to run it. It might be an open source free software, but it is at least configured for the machine at hand. This is the most expensive project I've ever sponsored on any site. I was continent since it was not their first project. I now regret it completely.

      So now we have to purchase software to use the printer? That''s just great! (not really..)

      @creator Is there a Mac OSX version of the software?

    12. Paprheron on

      this is kind of a slap in the face to your backers. we pledged and waited (ok, it takes time to get the bugs out) but then you add additional shipping charges on top of the shipping we already paid. Now you want to sell us slicing software at another $100+. we all could have taken our$800+ and purchased another option that we could have been using... I feel I will be offer mine up for sale as soon as it arrives. This is the first truly awful project I have backed. congratulations for being the first one to motivate me state my disappointment.

      Did I miss something, but it didn't say the software was going to be extra in the campaign. Said that there was a tool chain but after kickstarter, they would be working on a better solution. So how do we use this printer without software to run it?

      Thanks for the update, and the discount on the software. We were all wondering if you were going to extend that discount to the bean backers as well.
