For those running several 3D printers in-house, the latest news from Stratasys should be of interest, as GrabCAD Shop software solution looks to centralise all your needed 3D printing services.

The cloud-based software organises print work requests, CAD files, and project specs all in one space, sending status updates on the platform and via email to all stakeholders on a project - from the shop manager to the designer who’s part it is.

GrabCAD Shop comes pre-populated with Stratasys printers and materials, and has the ability to add third party printers and other traditional fabrication technology systems.

According to Stratasys’ analysis, approximately 15 per cent of work hours in a typical 3D print shop are wasted tracking down work order requirements and manually communicating status updates to engineers, designers and operators.

“Today, communication of requirements between designers, engineers and shop operators is inefficient and lacks traceability. This results in a loss of productivity,” said Paul Giaconia, vice president of product software for Stratasys.

“GrabCAD Shop streamlines 3D printing work order management so that shop operators can focus their valuable time on making and delivering parts to their end users.”

The GrabCAD Shop public beta is now available at no charge, and is expected to be commercially available globally in Q1 2020. Click here for more info.
