Projects in the Cloud

MakerBot CloudPrint™ software lets the teacher control all of the print jobs without having to download anything. A dashboard shows you all of the print jobs in one place, and you can see the progress of each one, including a live view of the current job via the camera. It makes dealing with multiple files very easy. Students can submit their designs directly from software such as TinkerCad, Autodesk Fusion 360 and Onshape.
