3DPrinterOS, the Silicon Valley company behind the “virtual 3D printing factory” of the same name, has announced partnerships and integrations with Siemens, Dassault Systèmes, Autodesk, and Onshape, enabling a new group of users to 3D print directly from their CAD software.

Although most consumer-level 3D printers are incapable of making commercial-level prints, 3D printing at home on a basic machine can be a lot simpler than manipulating a complex network of computers, servers, and 3D printers in a professional environment. While most amateur makers can design, slice, and print their 3D creations on the same screen in a short space of time, professionals often have to transfer their 3D files between several users and machines before the object can be printed.

In order to shorten this manufacturing latency, Silicon Valley company 3DPrinterOS has developed a cloud-based platform through which members of 3D printing enterprises can 3D print their designs directly, streamlining workflow and greatly reducing time to market. In an effort to expand its global reach, the company has today announced new partnerships with a number of CAD software developers, enabling users of different software packages to access the 3DPrinterOS platform directly from their digital design environment.

3DPrinterOS integration with Siemens' SolidEdge software

3DPrinterOS has announced native CAD-to-web 3D printing integrations with Siemens, Dassault Systèmes, Autodesk, and Onshape, enabling users of SolidEdge (Siemens), SolidWorks (Dassault Systèmes), and Autodesk Fusion 360 to 3D print directly from their CAD software without the hassle of exporting, transferring, or emailing files. “We found enterprises were wasting a lot of time sending designs through emails, sharepoints, FTPs, and deviating 3rd party systems,” said Anton Vedeshin, CTO of 3DPrinterOS. “3DPrinterOS deploys within 30 minutes and secures your entire AM manufacturing workflow, with an extremely easy-to-use platform that is highly scalable, while drastically reducing overhead.”

The new CAD integrations for 3DPrinterOS come after a six-month development period, during which the technical team strove to deliver seamless and direct 3D printing capabilities to a new user base. According to 3DPrinterOS, however, the recently announced partnerships and integrations are just the beginning, with the company aiming to provide a comprehensive solution for users of further design tools: “We are excited to enter more partnerships so we can provide all our Enterprise users with a seamless CAD to real-time direct 3D print capabilities and end to end integrations with manufacturing execution systems,” Vedeshin said.

3DPrinterOS CEO John Dogru

As well as working with major companies such as Ford and Cisco, 3DPrinterOS has been deployed across a number of US universities, including Yale, Purdue, UTEP, and Duke University’s 3D print lab, where it connects more than 35 operational 3D printers. The adoption of the virtual platform in both professional and academic environments has enabled designers to 3D print at faster speeds than ever before—something the company is extremely proud of: “We believe designers should be able to print and manufacture parts with the lowest amount of latency,” said John Dogru, CEO of 3DPrinterOS. “The designer has the most innovative potential to disrupt the future. Our goal is to unlock that potential. Our mission is to reduce the latency from design to manufacturing and distribution as close to zero as possible.”
