To start and run a 3D printing business, you’ll need software to facilitate collaboration between you and your clients. MakerOS was built to do exactly that. MakerOS is a business solution for product development companies that offer either 3D printing, CNC, laser cutting, product design, or any other digital fabrication service. The primary purpose of your company varies, depending on what type of company you are. If you’re just starting out, MakerOS is an out-of-the-box, turn-key solution to get the infrastructure set up and get your business up and running. If you’re more established, MakerOS can optimize your existing processes, help you win more clients. Our software features a suite of integrated tools that ensures project workflows are completed both optimally and efficiently. The tools include a “Public Autoquoter”, an online 3D viewer, a file sharing and messaging portal, an inventory manager, and a payment portal. All of those tools are connected and work with each other so that the process is streamlined and made incredibly easy for both the business and the client. By being more efficient from using MakerOS, we help drive growth, profitability, and scale your business. We also offer a 3D Printing Pricing Calculator that will tell you exactly how much you should price for 3D printing services. It accounts for everything a 3D Printing Business should consider when pricing, including rent, human time, machine time, and more, to get a real baseline number for how much to price and, more importantly, how much to profit. This calculator was developed from years of experience in the industry. We’ve worked with dozens of 3D printing companies and have quoted hundreds of projects. We took a very holistic approach in developing the calculator, which we elaborate on in our most recent on-demand webinar, “How to Optimally Price For Your 3D Printing Service Bureau in 2020.”
