Anyone who would like to be able to drop the wired USB connection from their computer to their 3D printing system may be interested in a new product being developed called the SMART+3DP.
SMART+3DP offers a wireless touchscreen system that allows users to control 3D printing as well as view the print and even pause the printing process during layers if required.
The new SMART+3DP wireless 3D printing system is being developed by Drotix who explain a little more :
“Free you from USB attachments and connecting cords. With the touchscreen system, you can manipulate your printer from the SMART+3DP device itself. The system allows you to rotate, scale, and prepare the 3D model before 3D printing. You can slice with Cura (And other slicers) locally or using our cloud, and even repair your 3D file before 3D printing.
Use SMART+3DP as your personal or commercial 3D Print Kiosk by connecting a big Touch Screen or Monitor, Keyboard & Mouse bundle. SMART+3DP allow to set use limits (Per user, Time, Filament and schedule) or to bill the jobs by Schedule/Time/Filament used combination in a prepaid or postpaid basis.”
