Stratasys, a leader in additive manufacturing or 3D printing technology, has launched a work order management software solution for shops that provide centralised 3D printing services. GrabCAD Shop is designed to streamline work order management processes by substantially improving the way designers, and shop operators collaborate on 3D printing orders.

Enterprise 3D printing shops, within larger design firms, manufacturing enterprises, or educational institutions, typically lack effective purpose-built solutions to manage shop work orders. Instead, many rely on email, spreadsheets, white-boards, and paper because simple and affordable software designed specifically for 3D printing has been lacking in the market. However, as 3D printing’s usage continues to grow by double digits every year, the efficiency penalty of this approach is becoming a significant business issue, Stratasys said in a press release.

A private beta programme began this summer and Schneider Electric was quick to sign on.

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. GrabCAD Shop streamlines this process. Requiring no IT implementation support, the cloud-based software organises print work requests, CAD files, and project specs all in one space. As jobs progress, shop operators and engineers receive status updates on the platform and via email. GrabCAD Shop comes pre-populated with Stratasys printers and materials so that any Stratasys customer can achieve immediate value. It also provides the ability to add third party printers and traditional fabrication technology systems.

“We’ve switched over completely to GrabCAD Shop. Our previous print request process was a Word document, and no one liked filling that form out. GrabCAD Shop’s simple set-up makes it a lot quicker to create print orders, and easier for me to manage them through the process. We also like how all the jobs are stored in the cloud so we can always go back and reprint an old job if needed,” Doug VanWaart, print manager for Schneider Electric said.

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