Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA, has partnered with 3DPrinterOS, Covina, California, to help scale its Additive Manufacturing lab. The AM programme at Lehigh has seen a good deal of growth since its launch in 2016, with nineteen AM machines and over 1,500 users who have additively manufactured over 4,377 and logged more than 67,000 of build time.

3DPrinter OS, a cloud-based platform that provides a centralised solution for managing and operating AM machines, was adopted in order to support the programme’s rapid growth. The university needed a way to manage the increasing number of machines, users and build requests whilst keeping the programme running smoothly.
