The Polar Cloud is making waves in 3D printing industry reviews. Two excerpts of recent reviews are below. Want to check it out for yourself? Just go to the Polar Cloud (cloud.polar3d.com), sign up for free and get access to the on-going projects, Polar Cloud collection of objects and monthly 3D printing challenges.
"Smooth Software: Polar 3D is targeting the education market with the clever and easy to use Polar Cloud. More than just a cloud slicer, this website is intended to serve as a web community where technical support, design challenges, 3D model libraries, and group projects can be shared."
"The company imagined a complete workflow to make students’ lives easier. To send a file to print, you upload the 3D model in your object collection and send it to the connected 3D printer. Once the file is ready, Polar Cloud opens to a beautiful live camera showing the mirror platform from the extruder point of view — the printer has a wide angle camera placed right behind the nozzle, which gives a great monitoring experience of the print at all times. Polar Cloud also enables the user to monitor several machines at the same time, perfect for a digital manufacturing lab."
"The Polar 3D is more than just a printer. It is a set of very powerful software products and services which have actually made the experience of using the printer an absolute delight. With the Polar3D, I do everything through the web - sending my models for printing directly to the printer.
The Printer Control Panel
"Polar 3D provides a cloud service where you can connect, and control, your printer and even multiple printers. I saw the founders control their 15 running printers from their Polar3D cloud interface at the ISTE conference where I met them - and it was incredible and useful.
"Since each printer also has a camera onboard, you can see the progress of every print live from anywhere you can gain web connectivity. To go one step further, every print job run is saved in the printer's history - so you can see information about all the prior print jobs, and - wait for it - you can watch a time lapse" video of any prior print which is automatically saved!
