Cloud CAD services
HTS Resources provides a broad range of consulting services:
- Custom CAD designs are developed with
which is an open source tool and the code for adapting it is part of the deliverable which can be independently adapted using this free to use software. OpenSCAD is code based CAD. OpenSCAD is code based CAD design software which has similar to syntax to
and Constructive Solid Geometry (
CAD management software
for 3-D printing compliments this service by storing the file and showing how they can be adapted when needed.

- From printing single units to building "botfarm" fabrication centers, the LabBot 3-D printers can be set up to provide a variety of options. These systems can be adapted to print a variety of different inks. Fast turn around times are provided. CAD designs and 3-D printing optimized slicing parameters can be stored using our
CAD management software
. Additionally, custom Gcode development and related graphical user interfaces for optimizing the fabrication process can be delivered through the automation
whether hosted online or delivered running on a
LabBot 3-D printer
The modular coreXY LabBot 3-D printer is set up to do fused filament fabrication. In the XY dimension it is around 35% larger then typical personal 3-D printers but it is designed to be adapted to extend the functionality (like from a FFF 3-D printer to a pipetter).
The LabAutoBox controller includes the 8 channel syringe pump, 8 servo driven 4-way valves, pipette wash station, 3 peristaltic pumps, pressure compensation vessel, wash/waste bottles, enclosure, control electronics and LabBot robotic scheduling software that runs on a Raspberry Pi computer. This tool is designed to convert CNC systems (like 3-D printers) into liquid handlers not just the LabBot. Note: this is a standard line item that comes with the LabBot pipetter system.
LabBot 3-D pipetter
This is the LabBot configuration for functioning as a 8 pipette tip liquid handler designed for laboratory automation applications. While this system can be converted into a 3-D printer, the bed is fixed rather then moving up and down.
3-D printing CAD cloud service
Develop and manage your STL files online using our web service. Store slicing profiles and slice for 3-D printing without having to install software locally using our low cost subscription service. Learn how to use free SCAD based and CSG CAD design techniques using our intuitive educational resources.
RaspberryPi scheduler software
This software makes it possible to integrate devices with the 3-D printer. It was designed to work with the widely available RAMPS motion controller running the smoothieware firmware. The deliverable is on a RaspberryPi.
- Building 3-D printers and creating laboratory automation processes is great exposure to work with mechanical, electrical, software and experimenal assay developmental skills. These services work with open source tools like (OpenSCAD, Arduino, RaspberryPi, Fritzing, Python, PHP) to rapidly and inexpensively deliver prototypes.
Patent search and drafting
- USPTO registered patent search and drafting is available. Prior searching, annotated mechanical drawings and claims drafting is available to support the prototype development and fabrication processes.
