Smart3D Macro, a new production 3D printing platform

A suite of 3D printers conceived to seamlessly transition from product development to manufacturing.

Industry Supplies introduced the new Smart3D Macro platform, offering broad material capabilities, a large build volume and a print speed that makes it a real manufacturing engine.

The new system was designed in two form factors. On the office side, the Prototyping Unit (PU) serves the needs of designers and engineers working on product development. For the industrial space, the Production Module (PM) was conceived for machine operators running production batches on the manufacturing floor. Each PM comprises four 3D printers, a dedicated computer, active drying thanks to the company’s Hybrid Drying Technology™ and advanced print farm management and automation features.

With its up-to-120°C actively heated 350 x 350 x 400mm chamber, Macro is more than a printer of high-performance materials. It is a solution to print any material at its highest performance. The Smart3D team has gone a long way to ensure material properties are optimized, regardless if it’s ABS, nylon, PEEK or composites. From a professional drying solution that restores the material’s optimal moisture level without being damaged by high heat or hydrolysis, to a system capable of printing the materials close to their glass transition temperatures, to an open material platform that enables a vast and constantly growing range of applications.

“The global manufacturing industry is a $12T opportunity for disruption, and 3D printing is widely considered the technology that is primed to do that. With the Smart3D Macro, we aim at the beginning to unlock its true potential. With the impact of the current pandemic in their established supply chain, many companies are looking for local, in-house or on-demand production alternatives. We’re proud to bring to the market this cutting-edge manufacturing solution,” said Roberto Gawanski, CEO, Industry Supplies.

In the same way, its hardware was designed with a scalable and modular approach, Smart3D offers software modules that serve diverse user needs. Businesses and educational institutions may benefit from the Smart3D Cloud, or install the Smart3D LAN printer management software locally if it better suits their IT requirements. To securely interconnect devices in production plants, the company has developed an IoT solution that works as a serverless neural network where communications take place without the need of a central server. This provides a new level of redundancy, as there is no danger of attack at one node that may compromise the rest of the network. Last but not least, the Factory Management module offers multiple packages to integrate Smart3D systems with the company’s ERP, enabling management of the factory’s full workflow.Smart3D Macro
