Powerful management through secure connections

Smart3D Macro is a platform designed to remove the barriers preventing production companies from adopting additive manufacturing technologies.

secure-serverless-connectivity

REDUNDANT

Smart3D products use decentralized serverless connectivity. This means that no down unit may compromise the rest of the network.

redundancy

SECURE

Macro 3D printers automatically interconnect between them via a serverless neural network, which brings network security, scalability and uptime to an unknown level in 3D printing. This gives IT departments no need to struggle with Wi-Fi networks, internet access via LAN or VPN’s that may be compromised.

SCALABLE

Conceived as a modular solution that can scale with demand, Macro’s software adapts to the needs of a single user as well as to multiple interconnected manufacturing facilities.

FLEXIBLE

The elastic Smart3D network grows or shrinks automatically as devices are added or withdrawn without port allocation or complicated setups.

The Macro platform has been designed with a modular approach, which also applies to its optional software modules. The following modules may be selected according to the user’s needs.

Cloud Module

software-2-2

The Prototyping Unit may either use a cloud server for slicing and control, or work entirely ofline. Its software can be completely controlled from the printer’s screen, and it may also accept print jobs from the network or a USB-drive.

Smart 3D Cloud
The Smart3D Cloud software package may work with an Internet connection, providing online slicing service, file storage, print job creation and administration, or user management.

Smart 3D LAN
The same Smart3D Cloud package can also be installed in an internal server if needed by security and/or connectivity requirements.

Serverless Module

Decentralized connectivity
The Smart3D industrial line incorporates IoT technology. All printers in the Macro platform (Prototyping Units as well as Production Modules) can connect with all other Smart3D devices present in the network, creating a new network between them where information is exchanged. This serverless subnetwork gives the platform an important redundancy value, which avoids potential downtime caused by server failure.

Functionality
The Production Module has been especially conceived for the creation of print farms and for scalability. Each Macro PM is completely autonomous and has its own system for slicing and control. When multiple PM’s are present in a network, the connection between them is automatic and they can be managed by an advanced control system for print job, device or user administration.

Security

Every network has the inherent risk of an outside or inside attack. A compromised network, in which the attacker has gained access to some level of control, may entail serious risks for a company’s information. The connectivity between Macro systems is encrypted. This means that even in the worst-case scenario, an attack may only compromise one node (device), while the rest would continue to be secure. Without a central server controlling this interconnectivity, there is no possible attack to a central node that may compromise the whole network.
