Big news from the world of the cloud. 3DPrinterOS, developer of the world’s premier cloud-based 3D printing operation system, has revealed that they will be collaborating with Microsoft Azure to greatly expand their global presence. Through this new collaboration, it should become easier than ever before to manage thousands of networked 3D printers, users and designs through the cloud– and to do so from almost every corner of the globe.

This is great news that could provide a huge boost to 3D printing-based production everywhere. As you might recall, 3DPrinterOS launched its public cloud single interface in early 2015, where users can manage their 3D prints, fix, store and stream 3D designs to 3D printers, all while having access to complete data tracking and analytics. From every perspective, it makes it easy for IT managers to access and manage 3D printing directly through any web browser. It was quite a big hit, and thousands of users from all over the world jumped onboard. At the beginning of the year, 3DPrinterOS also launched a private cloud system to make it far easier for organizations and businesses to use their state of the art cloud-based 3D printing operating system, without having to worry about IP loss.

Since then, the revolution has been steadily growing in momentum. From their HQ in Silicon Valley, 3DPrinterOS is currently providing their single interface 3D printing services to countless businesses, universities and other research institutes around the world. Among others, Ford and Cisco already use 3DPrinterOS, as do the universities of Duke, Yale, Purdue, UTEP, CalTech, UMD and UC Davis. In just the last eight months or so, 62,000 parts were 3D printed in more than a hundred countries using 3DPrinterOS. You might be using it yourself.

But the company isn’t stopping there, and has just announced this new collaboration with Microsoft Azure – Microsoft’s own cloud computing platform that provides application management and development services through Microsoft’s datacenters. With their backing, the company hopes to expand the 3DPrinterOS network presence throughout the world, revealed 3DPrinterOS CEO John Dogru.“We are extremely excited to collaborate with Microsoft Azure to serve our Enterprise Clients with its highly secure, hyper-scale global cloud,” he said. “It was a challenge to find the right company that had the cloud infrastructure, compliance, security, and reliability around the world including countries like China and Europe.”

The Microsoft team, for their part, are happy to play a role in bringing the cloud to 3D printing businesses as well. “The cloud is transforming entire industries and creating new opportunities for even the most innovative new businesses. The market leading scale and speed of Microsoft Azure helps spur global growth opportunities for companies like 3DPrinterOS who are utilizing cloud computing and IoT connected devices in a completely new model of decentralized manufacturing,” said Nicole Herskowitz, senior director of Microsoft Azure. While the exact details of the collaboration aren’t known yet, 3DPrinterOS is clearly going places.
