3DPrinterOS announced a private cloud 3D management platform for enterprises at the International CES 2016. The 3DPrinterOS private cloud is meant for any enterprise and provides a scalable platform that can easily distribute access to organisational 3D printers, is accessible through a web browser and customisable for unique business needs.
“It is clear that many organizations can’t use public cloud servers for the threat of IP loss“, 3DPrinterOS explains. “Now, for the first time enterprises can deploy a secure manufacturing platform to all its employees across the globe with the click of a button that is proven to work through 1000s of hours of testing worldwide.”
CEO John Dogru adds: “While working on the private cloud we especially kept in mind the security requirements of F500’s and other enterprises.”
A single interface. Easy to deploy and track
In fact, the private cloud gives enterprises access to advanced data analytics and they can track the entire lifecycle of every print job, including all revisions and user comments, all from a single interface. Thanks to the efficiency, it’s a huge money-saver for the enterprise. Many big manufacturing enterprises like Jabil, Cisco and Ford have already taken the lead starting to use 3DPrinterOS. They use it to instantly 3D print via a web browser, and produce qualified parts in multiple locations with just a few clicks.
The power of cloud manufacturing
Enterprises face many hurdles when looking to bring additive manufacturing into their workflow. One of which is concerns around the IP created during the 3D printing process and tracking that IP as it goes from design to creation of a physical object. The3DPrinterOS private cloud solves IP concerns by being deployed within the four walls of an organization and it allows groups to manage all files, users and machines from a central portal. By being able to leverage the power of the private cloud, Enterprises can now easily scale 3D printing programs. Where without the cloud, printers are often utilized by only 3-5 users trained specifically in the workflow that machine, with the 3DPrinterOS private cloud a single secure workflow can be taught to all users.
“Our goal is to disrupt the $12 Trillion manufacturing market by providing a platform that can help save time and resources even beyond 3D printing,” explained Dogru.
Launched in early 2015, 3DPrinterOS saw over 43,000 hours of printing across 4,100 machines in 96 different countries.
