Rapide 3D has signed with 3DPrinterOS to bundle their entire suite of printers moving forward with 3DPrinterOS’ cloud operating system. Starting with the Rapide 200 and 200 XL, Rapide owners will have access out the box to all the features of 3DPrinterOS. Rapide users will be able to connect their printers to the cloud via Windows, Mac, Ubuntu or Raspberry Pi.
Since opening to the general public in mid-March, 3DPrinterOS has seen over 4000 hours of printing across 1200+ printers in 68 different countries and 517 cities. 3DPrinterOS’ operating system opens up a whole new world of possibilities with their app engine, which powers features such as “Magic Fix” which can analyze, repair and orientate files for printing on specific machines, greatly reducing the chances of failure and wasted material for new users.
“3DPrinterOS will revolutionize the 3D printing industry with their cloud based operating system for 3D Printers. What Windows achieved in the personal and desktop PC environment in the late 80’s and early 90’s, 3DPrinterOS is about to do in the 3D printer space. 3DPrinterOS will launch 3D Printing to the masses with its intuitive interface and user-friendly commands and Rapide 3D wants to be a part of this both now and in the future” said Rapide 3D CEO Ethan Hunt.
Users will be able to manage, edit, fix, slice, share & print objects via phone, tablet, computer or any other smart device. Connecting Rapide printers to the cloud also gives remote control and live viewing of printers from anywhere there’s an Internet connection available. Rapide owners will get expanded access to cloud storage for their files, walkthrough videos, customer support and other materials to help get more out of their printers.
“We design, develop and produce hardware that is functional, reliable and innovative so it makes sense for us to partner with 3DPrinterOS so we can focus on making our machines even better” said Hunt. “Rapide 3D is excited to be partnering with 3DPrinterOS as we see this as the way forward for all 3D Printers of the future. “
