RaiseCloud Lite Extends Its Benefits to All Non-Raise3D Users Thanks to the New RaiseOcto Plugin
Irvine, April 21th, 2020 – For several years, Raise3D has pushed the boundaries in cloud printing thanks to the Beta version of RaiseCloud, its printing platform. Those who own Raise3D printers have been able to increase their productivity by making FFF production easier through a cloud interface, which helps in remote slicing and printing, monitoring filament consumption, reduced downtime through instant notifications, visual monitoring of prints and a plethora of other features.
While RaiseCloud is moving towards series production, with extensive workflow and production processes embedded, Raise3D has decided to extend its benefits to those who are more community-oriented and usually use different brands of printers: the Makers.
We are announcing RaiseOcto, a plugin based on Raspberry Pi with Octoprint on board that, together with the RaiseOcto app, will allow Raise3D users to manage all their machines, regardless of the brand, on the same platform.
With RaiseOcto, users who have 3rd party open-source 3D printers will be able to use RaiseCloud Lite, a version of RaiseCloud with the features that are essential for starting a print farm.
RaiseOcto will, therefore, enable all 3D printing users to instantly have all their desktop 3D Printers at their fingertips, no matter where they are.
Gina Häußge, founder of OctoPrint stated: “I really like the dashboard and the monitoring capabilities RaiseCloud offers for all of the connected printers, and the communication between my local OctoPrint instances and the cloud servers feels fast and snappy”
Users can slice their models online thanks to its integrated ideaMaker slicer or upload Gcode files previously sliced offline, then send them off to print by choosing a machine that is on standby, and let RaiseCloud do the rest. In the meantime, they can also monitor the progress of any ongoing prints, view snapshots of the printers that have cameras attached to the Raspberry Pi, tweak standard printer settings on the fly like temperature, feed rate, flow rate, fan speed, as well as cancel jobs, prioritize the order in which queued parts are printed, create work orders, review time-lapses and organize Gcode and STL files with ease.
For those who are production-oriented, RaiseCloud gives the ability to create teams with dedicated permission settings along with a long list of reporting features to keep track of all the activity related to their 3D printer statistics, like filament consumption, work order details and history, job statistics and much more. RaiseCloud Lite differs here from the standard version, by limiting the number of team members and printers, and not having a reporting system.
The features available on RaiseCloud Lite are usually enough to manage a small-scale print farm for personal use or for a small business, making it as powerful as most paid platforms. However, given the fantastic contribution of makers producing PPE during the worldwide pandemic crisis, Raise3D will waive any limitations and extend the full available benefits to everyone.
With the current situation around the world as it is, and having so many makers around the world mobilizing their machines with the goal of printing as many PPE accessories as possible, RaiseOcto can be a valuable addition to maximize their output of PPE accessories for their community.
