Introducing Microsoft Model Repair

Friday, April 04, 2014 by Alexander Oster

We are extremely happy to announce the latest product of our partnership with Microsoft to enable seamless 3D Printing for the mass market. Our cloud service on has been serving the community for years with an easy to use and automatic solution to prepare all their files for 3D Printing.

Within the years, the overall interest in and the usage of 3D Printers have risen exponentially - and so has the load on our servers for the service. We are very grateful that the 3D Printing Team at Microsoft has decided to sponsor the hosting of the service on Microsofts Cloud Computing platform Microsoft Azure, and help us to redesign and integrate the backend in a clean, professional, secure and scalable way.

This allows us to pave the way for the growth of the user-base for 3D Printers to millions of individuals - while still maintaining the performance and functionality we would like to achieve - and it allows us to keep the service free of charge.

The workflow itself has not changed very much, except that all uploads and results are stored in a secure way with your Microsoft Account credentials - we finally removed the sending of access keys via email, introduced SSL secured file transfer, and can ensure that the data handling is protected within the Azure Storage Framework. The excellent scalability of Azure allows us to instantly return the repaired files after processing.

We would further like to emphasize, that - in contrary to most other services on the web - neither Microsoft nor netfabb claims any copyright on your uploaded models or other connected content. We are a strong believer in the idea that this service shall take the pain out of 3D Printing, and we are extremely grateful about Microsoft sharing this vision.

In addition to that, we would like to announce the possibility to purchase reserved calculation capacity on the service for your Business, Website, Webshop, App or ERP-System. Via an easy-to-integrate REST API, every website, every app, every device and even every 3D Printer can ensure to use 3D printable data in their workflow - which is important for pricing, quoting, ordering, producing parts or any other thinkable use of 3D data.

We strongly believe, that this will significantly improve the stability of every aspect of the 3D Printing eco system, and every application dealing with STL, OBJ, VRML or 3MF files will greatly benefit from the service. As initial partners, we are supporting and Microsoft 3D Builder, who are using it exactly in this setting.

If you have interest, some ideas for a business application or immediate need for the service, feel free to contact us anytime.

If you would like to get an impression how serious the vision of seamless 3D Printing is within Microsoft and netfabb, please watch Kris Iverson's excellent presentation at the Build Conference 2014 in San Francisco.
