Lake Forest, California (PRWEB) February 18, 2014

MatterHackers’ upcoming “MatterControl for Android” Desktop 3D Printer control tablet version will now make 3D printers stand-alone as well as networkable. In other words users will be able to share their printer across a network and print from anywhere using their mobile devices, laptops, and desktops or print from the printer directly without the need for a PC connection. This is revolutionary in the new Desktop 3D Printer market and will set the standard for how networked 3D printing will evolve.

“The big picture, is any 3D printer can now become a Wi-Fi-enabled, stand-alone device”, says Lars Brubaker, CEO of MatterHackers. This will enable other new network features. “The printer will be able to download designs & print directly from the Internet. You will also be able to receive notifications from your printer via email or SMS,” Lars continued. MatterControl for Android will also feature an intuitive touch screen interface directly on the printer.

MatterHackers located in Lake Forest CA, sells 3D printers and 3D printing consumables. 3D printer manufacturers use their "MatterControl" solution to provide a clean, standard and consumer friendly user interface to their printers. Designers will use “MatterControl” to create and upload their designs/models as well as monetize the models like a developer who sells their applications on Apple’s App Store. 3D printer users will use “MatterControl” to shop, purchase and print 3D designs just as they use the App Store for mobile apps.
