Anyone who used 3dprinteros.com?

Recommended Posts

Looks like something that is useful for FabLabs where there are multiple printers and multiple users at the same time. But for home use? I don't see any benefits.

(Gotta admit, I didn't read through the entire website..)

The standard "generate GCode on the computer, put it on the SD card and print from the card" way is very simple and efficient. I want to stand next to the printer and check that everything is going well for the first minutes anyways.

As for managing multiple users / projects:

You can use multiple SD cards, or make a folder structure on the SD card. The Ultimakers can read and interpret folder structures.

They have a whole bunch of companies like http://secured3d.com/%20and%20fabsecure.com. and Fabsecure.com

We had a test unit a while ago, but it didn't work all that well and had quite a few security issues (then again, it was a early beta). I do see that they've got some financial backing now, so maybe it improved a lot. At the time the device was like 500 ish euro, which is way to expensive imho.

Glad to see our software being discussed in the forum. Just to be open and honest I work at 3DPrinterOS.

To clarify our software is free and is used for sharing and managing your 3D Printers and files.

You can connect your 3D Printer to the cloud via PC / Raspberry Pi / Mac or Ubuntu.

We actually teach classes with Ultimaker here in New York and we use 3DPrinterOS to let people queue up jobs to our printers here after the classes. If anyone would like access right now while we are still beta testing they can request on our site http://www.3dprinteros.com or send me a PM.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
