Zortrax inCloud printing management system is a cloud-based service for remote management of Zortrax 3D printers from anywhere in the world. This system manages 3D printing manufacturing processes for both single-device users and businesses running large 3D printing farms. It will also help reduce the number of man-hours necessary to run the printing process.
The Zortrax inCloud printing management system allows users to upload a selected model to a chosen 3D printer and start or pause the printing of the model remotely. A Multiprint function introduced within the system is aimed at businesses running large 3D printing farms. It allows for the selection of currently available devices and the order of mass printouts, so that all models, printed on various devices, are manufactured and finished at the same time.
Users can also remotely access cameras built in the M Series Plus machines to check if the previously printed models have been removed from build platforms and the machines are really ready to go.
They can also see the ongoing printing process on live footage. The system allows for building teams of users with access to the inCloud service within the company and assigning available 3D printers to each of those teams. That is an important feature for the enterprises seeking to limit the number of people working on site, due to the pandemic safety measures. Ready-to-print models can be uploaded directly to the chosen printer or printers, so there is no need for employees to operate the machines on the spot. It suffices to have one staff member at the office to take the prints off the build platform once the printing is done.
Since some of the projects printed through the inCloud might be confidential, Zortrax inCloud has been designed to ensure the highest level of privacy possible.
The remote management system is available for users from September 2, 2020. Zortrax inCloud enables free transfer of models up to 1 GB total. It is possible to upgrade the service up to 3 GB for the Standard Plan, 16 GB for the Professional Plan and 50 GB for the Enterprise Plan. The available transfer is renewed monthly. And there is also an option to buy more transfer, if need be.
