for design firms and 3D print farms

NEBULON.XYZ

Nebulon is a software development project, a cloud based datacenter for material and production control especially developed for 3D print farms and cutting edge manufacturers.
We quickly realised as a startup in the 3D print farm and 3D CAD area, that very few easy to use and versatile PLM/PDM systems for the new era of 3D printing exist. So we decide to develop our own.  The development have gone a long way and Nebulon is today the heart of our design data, parts, production orders, machine maintenance and so much more. 
Count time and material

Nebulon is a database that keeps all your design, product information, manufacturing and processes in the cloud, ready for you to reach anywhere in the world.

Nebulon integrates with Autodesk Fusion 360 and can host 3D archive files as well as STL files. 

Be in control  be in the cloud

Nebulon runs on cloud servers and can be hosted on any cloud service. This also means Nebulon can manage multiple instances of farms located anywhere in the world but all shared in one central database.

Nebulon integrates with Eiger.io from Markforged, Raise 3D and other cloud services for 3D printing

knowledge database

As production goes on, all things are feeded into the database regarding machines settings, G-codes, STL files, PDF's with service data as well as material safety data sheets. All designers and 3D production technicians share the same info and mistakes can be avoided and quality consistent between farms.

Nebulon is one of our platform development projects, it is a cloud database for material and production control specifically developed for 3D print farms and modern manufacturers.
The Product database is the top structure with all assemblies below from substructures Parts, Components, Packages and Process. This allow for complete control of all costs like machine hours, material usage, external purchase of components and human labour in the form of tasks defined in processes.

Parts

The Parts database holds information about every part that is designed in your 3D CAD system. Fusion 360 models are directly linked from the database. Parts is a subset of the main assembly in Nebulon defines as a Product. Parts have loads of properties connected to it and also carries links to which 3D printers that is used as well as material choices. The database also holds vital external data as STL files, DXF files, drawings as well as Fusion 360 archives.

Components

The component database collects data regarding all pre-made components bought from external resources like supermagnets, roll bearings, bolts and screws, RFID chips etc. Purchase pricing, supplier info, sizes and data sheets is all stored in the database as well as availability. The components have a virtual version as a 3D model that is inserted in the main Fusion 360 CAD assembly.

Packages

The material and package database keeps track of all info regarding packages and inlays, foam etc. With a Laser cutter and engraver all settings for engraving and cutting is stored on each box with values for power, speed and frequency.  Vector files for the laser can be uploaded and stored in the database for easy access.Sizes for inlays,  pricing and material information is all stored in the database.

Processes

The fourth underlying database to complete the suite is the processes. This is the database where all work tasks and man time is gathered and explained. Timing and costs as well as descriptions is stored and multiple tasks can later be added to the main product ro track the activities and get the final internal pricing of a complete product. Processes can be linked to specific task sone with a specific machine, person and part.

The MPS solution for 3d farms

3D design firms and the new breed of manufacturers need new tools to drive their business, we developed Nebulon for this purpose, a central glue between Fusion 360 and 3D printing slicers like Markforged eiger.io, raise 3D cloud and Ultimaker digital Factory.

the benefits

The benefits are many, but we have little time and space so below is four arguments to become a lostboyslab partner and join our community and use Nebulon in your production
During 2021 we will only work with partners that will join us to develop the solution in very close cooperation. Commercial licensing will take place during end of 2022.

Thinks like a 3D farm and fast like a Lamborghini

Nebulon is born the 3D print farm, it solves our daily problems and streamlines our processes. The Machine database have a full maintenance log over every issue reported, creates a lake of knowledge and allows for quick turnaround of solving issues. Essential price calculations including material costs, machine time and tasks is defined and summarized in the main assembly, the Product database.

Integration with Autodesk Fusion 360

The lostboyslab work only with Autodesk Fusion 360, it is integrated in Nebulon in several ways. Publicly uploaded models can be viewed on each part and on the full assembly in Product database. Drawings, DXF laser cutting, archived Fusion 3D models as well as STL can be stored.

Part numbered uses in Fusion to easy find and locate 3D CAD models as well as our material library for 3D filaments into Fusion 360.

Connected with 3D printing slicers like Eiger & Cura

From the parts database you have direct access to the same part as STL file uploaded in Markforged Eiger.io or you can open Cura directly from the parts database with or without octoprint. Parts numbering is consistent between the database, Slicers and Fusion 360.  Machines and material is also coded with unique identifiers that also is integrated in NFC tags added to the physical filament rolls for traceability.

Developed by Makers for Makers

Nebulon is a new way of working in a factory run by a few people with hundreds of 3D printers working in parallell day and night. It requires a new way of thinking and speed, control and flexibility is keywords.

Nebulon is in its infancy and we will continue to develop it extensively in 2021 before we launch to the public. New features like RFID connectivity, Support for 3D configurators, mass customisation and our IoT solution whatt.io
