3DPrinterOS - City MapSince mid-March, 3DPrinterOS has been used for more than 4,000 hours of printing and run 1,200 printers in 68 different countries in 517 different cities worldwide.

It’s an operating system for 3D printers with an app engine which powers features like “Magic Fix.” The cloud-based system is capable of analyzing, repairing, and orienting files for printing on specific machines, and it reduces the chances of failure and wasted material for new users.

Rapide 3D signed on with 3DPrinterOS to bundle their entire line of printers with the 3DPrinterOS cloud operating system, as we reported two weeks ago, and now new details have emerged.

Beginning with the Rapide 200 and 200 XL, Rapide owners will have immediate access to all the features of 3DPrinterOS and be able to connect their printers to the cloud via Windows, Mac, Ubuntu, or Raspberry Pi.

The CEO of Rapide 3D, Ethan Hunt, says he believes 3DPrinterOS will revolutionize the 3D printing industry.

“What Windows achieved in the personal and desktop PC environment in the late 80’s and early 90’s, 3DPrinterOS is about to do in the 3D printer space,” Hunt says. “3DPrinterOS will launch 3D Printing to the masses with its intuitive interface and user-friendly commands, and Rapide 3D wants to be a part of this both now and in the future.”

3DPrinterOS - World UsageThe 3DPrinterOS suite allows users to fix, manage, edit, slice, share, and print objects through their phone, tablet, computer, or smart device.

3DPrinterOS, created by 3D Control Systems located in the Bay area, was funded by Vulcan Capital, and the company says their goal is to offer compatibility on hundreds of 3D printer makes and models. A secure cloud interface allows for streaming design files directly from the cloud to 3D printers via standardized platform.

Once a Rapide printer is connected to the cloud, the system features remote control and live viewing of printers via any Internet connection, and Rapide owners will have access to cloud storage for their files, demo videos and customer support.

The company has also built a playlist of tutorial videos on YouTube to simplify the use of their printers with 3DPrinterOS.

Rapide 3D was founded in 2012, and the Australian-owned 3D printer manufacturer is based in Shenzhen, China. The company offers 10 models of 3D printers from the Rapide Lite Series to the Rapide S, an innovative chocolate 3D printer.
