3D Control Systems announces ZAP, its automated workflow platform that integrates disparate 3D printer systems, frees users of risk for future technology integrations, and eliminates costs for system migration, deployment, and upgrades. This makes ZAP a suitable solution for manufacturing factories looking to address requests that range from automating internal 3D printers to managing external production more efficiently.
The ZAP operating system eliminates having to deal with multiple 3D printing systems that do not talk to each other. The software platform works like an operating system that is agnostic to other printer manufacturer software and design tools in use. It integrates and connects disparate 3D printing systems automatically.
For several years, 3D Control Systems was controlling 3D printers from the 3DPrinterOS cloud operating system that could provide file management, job preparation and more for organizations operating fleets and arrays of 3D printers. The results have been positive and address an industry gap. As 3D printers are added, the management complexity increases, and systems to oversee them bring value to organizations and manufacturers.
“ZAP encompasses everything operators need to run a factory, from ERP, MES, CRM, and PLM. Our extensive partnership ecosystem has driven full automation,” said Michelle Bockman, CEO, 3D Control Systems. “The solution for our customers’ biggest challenge with 3D printing is to give them one agnostic cloud-based decentralized manufacturing operating system.”
