When paired with Sandboxr’s Digital to Doorstep platform and impressive brand portfolio, WhiteClouds has the potential to be the leading 3D printing solution provider.
Through Sandboxr’s Digital to Doorstep solution, WhiteClouds’ 3DaaS platform will now be able to offer businesses 3D Printing in the Cloud with unmatched customization and personalization via Sandboxr’s patented configurator software.

It also ties directly into WhiteClouds existing software capabilities, further streamlining the company’s customization workflow while opening additional creative avenues.
