3D Control Systems, an advanced manufacturing software solutions provider, is collaborating with HP to integrate the HP 3D Application Programming Interface (API) with 3D Control Systems’ additive manufacturing workflow software. The 3D API integration promises to increase workflow efficiency by allowing more direct data sharing between software and printer.
3D Control Systems is the parent company of 3DPrinterOS, which is responsible for “one click” additive manufacturing. This operating system has helped convert fresh users to AM because it simplifies human interaction with AM. 3D Control Systems continues this work with its connect to HP’s API.
The integration of HP 3D API enables 3D Control Systems customers using HP Jet Fusion systems to streamline workflow, optimize job efficiency, and analyze production efficiency with access to critical data. The company’s advertised metrics are already impressive: 77 times increased throughput; 485% cost savings; and two months until return on investment.
HP Jet Fusion users will be able to connect directly with their systems through 3D Control Systems software to simplify device management and get real-time updates on performance and efficiency.
“Our customers demand the highest level of efficiency and digital manufacturing capabilities as they look to optimize their 3D printing production,” said Michelle Bockman, CEO, 3D Control Systems. “The ability to easily connect systems, receive important data and streamline workflow is critical to meet industrial-grade performance and quality requirements. We are excited to work with HP and take advantage of the API connectivity and support they are providing to the industry.”
