an FDM 3D printer manufacturer based in Barcelona,
Has disclosed the launch of its brand-new cloud platform.
This is designed to replace the company’s present Cloud software,
the new platform is based on the basic technology of AstroPrint, recently acquired by BCN3D last July.
The new release will enable BCN3D customers to streamline their 3D printing workflows and scale their operation with real-time fleet management,
remote build monitoring,
and increased collaboration between teams, and more.
According to Daniel Arroyo, chief software Officer of BCN3D.
” For our current clients, the integration of AM processes in their business is becoming more important as applications are more pressing.
With increasing print part numbers,
there’s more interaction between people and machines, workflow needs to be robust and seamless.
To support those customer needs, BCN3D aims to provide software layers that add effective value on top of hardware,
Closing the ring of an enterprise-level solution.
A shift towards industrial applications
BCN3D’s recent 3D printer releases include the sigma D25 and Epsilon series,
it is noted that the firm is shifting focus towards the industrial-grade 3D printing markets.
The firm says, its main verticals in 2021 are the manufacturing, engineering and automotive sectors,
with its primary applications becoming tooling, low volume batches and functional parts.
This shift started in 2019 when BCN3D disclosed its high-performance materials collaboration with Mitsubishi Chemical and BASF Foward Am.
One year later, the Smart cabinet,
an added device created to ensure filaments are kept perpetually at low humidity levels was launched by BCN3D technology.
BCN3’s technology has since then been the bedrock of several automative projects,
a Portfolio that includes Nissan and Elisava Racing team from Barcelona’s University School of deign ad engineering, the latter using it to 3D print end-use parts for an All-electric intelligent mountain rescue motorcycle.
To meet up with its hardware progress,
BCN3D has now turned to its software portfolio.
The cloud targets the combination of remote fleet and resource management under one system,
enabling companies to easily carry out controlled 3D workflows.
BCN3D Cloud tiers
Starting October 12 it will be available under threw different plans:
Teams, private and standard.
The three cloud plans include their specifications to meet the needs of a diverse range of customers.
BCN3D Cloud Standard plan will be included with their previously released printers (Epsilon series and Sigma D25 3D printers).
it enables users to manage a set of printers.
The standard plan also enables real-time stats, allowing for smooth workflow analysis.
BCN3D cloud teams are aimed at larger organisations that need to structure a department with configurable roles and permissions for their employees
there is a three-month probationary trial period, then a price of $595 a year.
Lastly, the BCN3D cloud is created for organisations and projects that need to be on a low( where privacy and security are very important).
