BCN3D announced a complete reinvigoration of its current BCN3D Cloud platform. The new web-based cloud will allow companies to scale up their additive manufacturing operations and make entire printing workflows more efficient, controlled, and easier than ever before.
BCN3D set a goal of creating software to level up to their hardware solutions. The result is the new BCN3D Cloud, which centralizes all aspects of remote printer and resource management in one place for the easy implementation of a systematic workflow.
“For our current clients, the integration of AM processes in their business is becoming more critical as the applications are more demanding, an indicator of the tendency is that 3D printing machines are currently printing more than 12h a day on average. With such increasing printed part volumes, more people, and more machines interacting, the workflow needs to be robust and seamless. To support those customer needs, we offer software layers that add effective value on top of hardware, closing the circle of an enterprise-level solution.“ Daniel Arroyo, Chief Software Officer of BCN3D.
Plans and availability
BCN3D has cultivated a new platform with a renewed user experience and interface to ensure frictionless usage. The BCN3D Cloud will be available next 13th of October in order to make a smooth transition for current BCN3D customers. BCN3D has also announced three different plans.
–The BCN3D Cloud Standard plan is included for all BCN3D customers (Epsilon Series and Sigma D25) and is ideal for driving the adoption of additive manufacturing within companies. Its main features are the digital library, queues management, organizing and prioritizing print jobs, and clusters. These allow users to group printers according to different characteristics or capabilities and view statistics, which provides companies with a real-time analysis to take actions based on data.
–The BCN3D Cloud Teams allows advanced organizations to administrate a departmental structure with customized roles and permissions for members. This plan also includes the Workflows feature, which permits the creation of several workflows in order to manage and control the printing process, all the way from design to the final piece. Depending on the role, some users can add files to the workflow while others are responsible for managing the printing process. The Teams plan will be available from late October onwards for a 3 month probation period, and then 495€ per year (595$/year).
–The BCN3D Cloud Private is an on-demand plan dedicated to corporations that must be absolutely certain that their specific privacy and security requirements are being met.
