DigiFabster Expands to Support CNC Machining
DigiFabster is pleased to announce that it will be extending the capabilities of its software-as-a-service solution for online quoting, order entry and customer relationship management to include Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling applications.
"Many of our customers provide both additive and subtractive manufacturing solutions for their clients," says DigiFabster CEO, Constantine Ivanov. "Many of them were telling us they wanted to use our software to manage both workflows. While CNC machining is certainly different from 3D printing, there are some similarities. We have leveraged our years of experience working with advanced algorithms and software design to meet a new requirement and deliver more value for our customers."
From an end-user's perspective, DigiFabster's software retains the same easy-to-use interface for which the company has always been known. DigiFabster's i-frame based "widget" can be placed on nearly any web page, allowing shops and service bureaus to retain their branding and emphasize their unique value-add.
Behind the scenes, DigiFabster's configurator allows managers to make decisions about which materials to offer. It also automatically calculates machine time and offers options for post processing and finishing. Once the system is set up, it allows purchasers to select the appropriate options and get a quote online, automatically. If they are ready to buy, they can use DigiFabster's eCommerce features to submit and track their order.
"CNC milling is definitely a different animal," says DigiFabster CPO, Peter Van der Zouwen. "The calculations needed to generate an accurate quote are often more complex than with 3D printing. We spent a significant amount of time making sure we understood the relationship between materials and machine time, among other variables. Our beta-testers are very happy with the results."
For machine shops, service bureaus and other users of industrial equipment, quoting, order entry and customer management can be some of the most laborious, time-consuming processes. DigiFabster helps automate those tasks so employees can focus on higher-value activities.
"Some of our existing customers have seen their labor cost drop by 20% or more," says DigiFabster's Ivanov. "Others have repurposed that labor into providing more of a hands-on approach with their best customers. It has helped them grow their revenues by 25% per month and more. In either scenario they find they're getting almost instantaneous ROI."
DigiFabster's new CNC features will launch on September 10, 2018. Job shops, service bureaus and others who offer CNC milling can find out more by visiting
