The 3DPrinterOS cloud solution is now available for print farms with a new Formlabs integration. Supported systems include the best of the Formlabs portfolio, encompassing Form 2, Form 3+, Form 3L, Form 3B, Form 3BL, and Fuse 1.
“For over five years, Formlabs in-cloud slicing has been the number one request from 3DPrinterOS users. We are extremely excited and proud to finally offer the community one-click print now available for Formlabs 3D printers, straight from the web browser, with no downloads. Simply upload your part, and it’s instantly sliced in the cloud or private servers, ready to print and scale across an infinite number of users, printers, and locations,” said John Dogru, Founder, 3DPrinterOS.
The Formlabs slicer, available now with full cloud slicing, is a significant stride forward for both the hardware OEM and 3DPrinterOS. It’s also a direct response to what customers have been requesting. Powerful, neutral operability is set to push the boundaries of what Formlabs operators can achieve.
Setting up 3DPrinterOS for Formlabs 3D printers is fast and painless. In short, it’s a two-step process: First connect the 3D printer to the 3DPrinterOS Client web interface, then start slicing (as long as the Formlabs system(s) has the latest firmware updates).
“Our customers, and the industry, have been waiting for cloud slicing for the Formlabs printers. Very similar to the rest of the industry, until now you’ve had to use desktop software to prepare everything. It’s not easy, you can’t with one click give the ability for thousands of users in a university or enterprise to securely and easily send jobs to the 3D printers. That’s why 3DPrinterOS exists, and why we are the #1 choice in the top 100 universities in the world like MIT, Harvard, Yale, etc., and top companies like Bosch, Google, John Deere, Eaton etc.,” said Dogru of the integration.
As the first operating system for desktop 3D printers, 3DPrinterOS, brings ease of use to a fragmented market. It supports any 3D printer, bringing know-how and neutrality to create a world’s-first offering of integration and secure operation.
The decentralized platform has been used to build more than 2,000,000 parts in more than 130 countries, with almost a millennia of total 3D printing time. The company works with some of the biggest names in the 3D printing industry, from hardware OEMs to software developers, to offer the single most important outcome for users: solutions.
