What market is looking for?The world of 3D printing continuously grows and businesses that provide 3D printing services need new specific tools like selection and providing of necessary materials, creation of unique 3D models, price counting, delivery, and much more.Once the chess legend Garry Kasparov said,
“The main thing is not how many steps forward you think, but how well you analyze the current situation.”
These words are also relevant for the rapidly developing 3D printing industry.The fact is that 3D printing is not an everyday routine for many people yet. On this occasion, 3Design was the first to enter the New Zealand 3D printing market, they pointed out a missing service for those who wanted to try it out but did not want to pay for an expensive 3D printer or did not know how to use one.Today, their new 3D printing farm, powered by 3DPrinterOS 3rd generation API, allows users to create the models they want in a timesaving and cost-effective way without having to have any 3D printing knowledge or experience, just access to the internet.
“In this case, over the last year a few companies like OnShape, MyStemKits, Pinshape, FormTap, PlanetReplicas, ZdravPrint, and iMcustom did a test pilot of the previous API versions. We have identified a very smooth user experience flow for one-click-printing. The new version has several smart fault identifications and troubleshooting mechanisms built in.", says Anton Vedeshin, CTO of 3DPrinterOS.
One-window-printIn general, the printing process via 3DPrinterOS API starts with connecting the 3D printer, selecting the printer type, positioning of the object on the build tray and scaling, selecting best slicing profile and payment. Ending with 3D printing and tracking the progress status.
The main thing is all these manipulations take place in a single window on the 3D printing service's web page. There is no forwarding to external services.One-click-print
Education platform MyStemKits provides a large library of 3D printing projects for STEAM teachers. Users can print any 3D model kit directly from the site on more than 50 types of supported 3D printers by 3DPrinterOS. Businesses like MyStemKits has a goal to take a difficult subject and make it simple. In support of this philosophy, the third generation API provides the opportunity to select a one-click-print mode and all the settings will be produced automatically by internal algorithms. All of this is done immediately.What is under the hood?You can hardly surprise anyone with a cross-platform, multi-language support or working code examples with today’s technology.3DPrinterOS application programming interface has some specific features that include:
- Virtual 3D printer cloud driver;
- Collection of payment plugins;
- Smart 3D printer detection;
- Pay per print, one click print and print business model subscription support.
As the 3D printing process becomes much more understandable and easy to use for a non-professional end user, 3DPrinterOS CEO, John Dogru notes,
"Decades ago, world was moving from physical and analog to digital - creating CAD designs, engineering products using computers, today we move from Digital to physical. Just imagine..."
