3D Print Job Submission Form
A 3D printer is a small factory. A 3D printer's job flow benefits from the use of processes similar to those used in small-scale factories or other job shops that handle small runs of custom piece work. The requirements for this job handling process includes a readily accessible and easy to understand form customers use to unambiguously describe the details of each job that they submit. The process must also provide operators with an interface that enables them to process their job flow efficiently, optimize the quality of the objects produced, keep costs down and track the invoicing and payment for completed work.
This is a template of a 3D print job submission form that has been used for processing 1,000's of 3D print jobs during a 12 month period. Each job submission results in a row being added to a spreadsheet through the use of JotForm's Google Sheets integration feature. While the spreadsheet the rows are added to can't be changed or added to, Google Sheets' IMPORTRANGE function can be used to populate a range of cells in another sheet used for managing the production process.
Follow the link given below to find more information on how this form and Google Sheets can be used to manage 3D print jobs submitted by students. Variations of these tools can also be used in other operational contexts.
