3D Printing and Education – Duke University Case Study

Duke University is home to one of the world’s leading programs for giving students access to 3D printing. Duke’s program, which started with just a few students able to try 3D printing on a single Printrbot Simple Metal, has now grown to 35+ printers and over 250 students with access. Their goal in 2016 is to distribute access to 3D printing to the entire student body and faculty.

“We went out and looked at other colleges and toured labs trying to really understand what was working for them and what wasn’t,” said Chip Bobbert, Digital Media Engineer and Emerging Media Technologist at Duke. “Where schools struggled was in providing an easy way to make machines available and manage that process,” said Bobbert.

3DPrinterOS Announces Private Cloud for Enterprises at CES 2016

3D printing - Enterprise

3DPrinterOS announces private cloud 3D management platform for enterprises at CES 2016. It is clear that many organizations can’t use public cloud servers for the threat of IP loss. Now, for the first time enterprises can deploy a secure manufacturing platform to all it’s employees across the globe with the click of a button that is proven to work through 1000s of hours of testing worldwide. ‘While working on the private cloud we especially kept in mind the security requirements of F500’s and other enterprises,’ said CEO John Dogru, a former Lead Automated Manufacturing Engineer at Dell.

The 3DPrinterOS private cloud is meant for any enterprise and has all the perks of a public cloud. It provides a scalable platform that can easily distribute access to organizational 3D printers, is accessible through a web browser and customizable for unique business needs.

A single interface. Easy to deploy and track
In fact, the private cloud gives Enterprises access to advanced data analytics and they can track the entire lifecycle of every print job, including all revisions and user comments, all from a single interface. Thanks to the efficiency, it’s a huge money-saver for the enterprise. Many big manufacturing enterprises like Jabil, Cisco and Ford have already taken the lead starting to use 3DPrinterOS. They use it to instantly 3D print via a web browser, and produce qualified parts in multiple locations with just a few clicks.

The power of cloud manufacturing
Enterprises face many hurdles when looking to bring additive manufacturing into their workflow. One of which is concerns around the IP created during the 3D printing process and tracking that IP as it goes from design to creation of a physical object. The 3DPrinterOS private cloud solves IP concerns by being deployed within the four walls of an organization and it allows groups to manage all files, users and machines from a central portal. By being able to leverage the power of the private cloud, Enterprises can now easily scale 3D printing programs. Where without the cloud, printers are often utilized by only 3-5 users trained specifically in the workflow that machine, with the 3DPrinterOS private cloud a single secure workflow can be taught to all users.

‘Our goal is to disrupt the $12 Trillion manufacturing market by providing a platform that can help save time and resources even beyond 3D printing,’ explained Dogru. 3DPrinterOS is building upon the success of its public cloud launched early in 2015. The public cloud saw over 43,000 hours of printing across 4,100 machines in 96 different countries.

The private cloud is part of 3DPrinterOS turnkey approach to helping Enterprises enter 3D printing as they understand how each and every business has a unique use for additive manufacturing. 3DPrinterOS team will be demonstrating the new enterprise focused private cloud @CES this week in Booth: 72323.

The Influence Of Education On The 3D Printing Industry

This article written by 3DPrinterOS CEO John Dogru originally appeared on TechCrunch. 

 

You probably don’t own a 3D printer yet. Like computers in the early 1980s, it’s an intriguing new technology that hasn’t quite found its place in the home.

However, schools and universities are proving to be a petri dish of innovation, where there is an existing space for experimentation and practical application, as well as palpable enthusiasm for the technology among both teachers and students.

What is the best flexible filament for my 3D printing needs? – My3DMatter study

Please enjoy this excellent study reprinted with permission from My3DMatter.

Flexible filaments arrived on the market a couple of years ago and have really broadened the range of objects that can be made with personal 3D printers. While flexibility is a new dimension to the material selection that users can now tap into, this dimension has not been well investigated.

There are many suppliers of flexible materials, and this diverse product selection is also associated with a wide range of filament flexibility levels, mechanical performance, visual quality and processability. Also, there is currently little understanding of how to use a given filament to get the right flexibility for prints, in particular by adjusting the infill %.

This study compares a set of six flexible filaments along various criteria to provide users with a point of comparison among current suppliers. It also gives insight into how to use flexible filaments to reach the right level of flexibility, and the key parameters to adjust when printing this type of material.
