Fabpilot, throwback to the software that industrializes 3D printing
Almost three months after its release, Fabpilot is still topical. It must be said that Sculpteo, its made a point of personally developing its own software tools to increase efficiency and to reduce the operating costs of 3D printers. After 8 years of R&D, the software helps professionals to manage and optimize their 3D printing fleet.
Fabpilot can significantly optimize how production centers operate, and takes part in the advent of the industry 4.0. This Software as a Service (SaaS) enables third parties to control and manage their own fleet of 3D printers. It handles every step of the process, from nesting orders to preparing the parts and from the printing process to shipping.
According to the developer, it is simple and easy-to-use compared to existing solutions that are either too slow, require too much training, or are too expensive. That’s why every step of the production process was optimized internally to make the most out of 3D printing, by reducing lead times and lowering costs while continuously improving the quality of parts.
The software is based on four pillars:
• User-friendly, it is intuitive and easy handling and requires no training, installation or download.
• Available on the cloud, providing users with 24/7 access no matter their location
• All the tools needed are available in one software, and do not require any additional modules.
• Finally, it costs about 5 times less than competing software.
The files are corrected automatically, the parts are hollowed out as much as possible, within the limits imposed by their mechanical constraints, multiple orders are virtually nested simultaneously to improve production efficiency.
Last, Sculpteo’s cloud technology adapts to most professional 3D printers. It is compatible with more than 30 different file formats and can convert them to a format that can be read by these machines.
