Software updates to Lisa and Lisa PRO selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printers make them compliant with Industry 4.0 standards. One of the aims of Industry 4.0 readiness is automated integration with factory logistics. Devices such as 3D printers need to output job status data, and Lisa and Lisa PRO now provide such information. A print monitor online function allows remote print tracking, and the user interface is more intuitive and easier to operate with easily accessible functions.

The software update also enhances Sinterit Studio – a comprehensive tool to manage the 3D printing process – which now has a better object collision detector.


3DEO, a metal 3D printing company based in Los Angeles, California, has received ISO 9001:2015 certification to further the commercialization of its technology. The certification allows 3DEO to operate more effectively on several different levels, including the ability to focus on customer requirements, ensure consistent production, and continuously improve the production process. The certification process took only 3 months, whereas implementation typically takes 6 months to 12 months.
