Announcing PrintRite3D® – Machine Health Module

Sigma Additive Solutions Launches its Machine Health Module for Standardizing Machine Health Data Logs

Part of its Digital Quality Framework for AM Qualification and Standardization

Gain Consistency Across Your Site and Supply Chain with:


A standard framework for in process-quality


Deep instant insight into your machine sensor data


A uniform format, analytics package, and reporting tool


Dashboard visualization view showing key real-time metrics

For a limited time, we are offering our Beta partners early access to Sigma’s Machine Health module, including:

  • Ability to link machines by API or upload all machine sensor csv log files
  • Creation of a common standards-based file format for analytics, visualization, and reporting agnostic of machine type
  • A single cohesive environment for all in-process quality data, customizable to your unique production requirements
  • Deep insight into your machine sensor data
  • Dashboard visualization view showing key metrics
  • A path to scale to future integrated Process and Part Health modules containing sensor fusion of camera, thermal camera, melt pool data, and more

About the Machine Health Module

In heterogenous environments, the proprietary quality control approaches that various additive machine manufacturers have developed often lead to inconsistency in quality assurance across manufacturing operations. Fragmented quality strategies lead to cost-control issues, increased scrap rates, and missed deadlines for in-house and contract manufacturers alike. Industries like aerospace, defense, medical, and automotive have become frustrated by the AM industry’s complicated, expensive, and time-consuming path to achieve efficient part qualification and standardization.

Sigma’s PrintRite3D Machine Health module marks the beginning of Sigma Additive Solutions software-only approach to quality assurance by allowing users to take disparate machine log files and standardize them. Built upon our robust PrintRite3D monitoring and analytics technology, we are creating a framework for connecting and standardizing distinct sensors and images into a cohesive product suite.

This act of sensor fusion – conjoining data types – will provide improved confidence in defect detection, root cause analysis and mitigation – allowing everyone to interpret control charts and other data types/sources uniformly.

Our team at Sigma Additive Solutions has spent more than a decade creating and refining the technology to provide a framework for standards-based data exchange, metrics, and analytics.

We are committed to an open architecture philosophy, acting as a 3rd-party agnostic option connectable to the broad install base of the additive industry.

PrintRite3D for Machine Health Features

(Launching First to Beta Partners Globally)


Common Language – Transform your data logs to common machine health format

  • Clean, standards-based language for sensor types versus one-off terminology
  • Consistency across machine make and model

Dashboarding – Critical to quality (CTQ) metrics

  • Quick look summary
  • For individual builds or your machine fleet

Evaluation – Access and monitor real time and historical data

  • Interrogate builds in real time or post-build. 
  • Identify Special and Common Cause variations using standard analytic run rules

Monitor Trends – Build-to-build or machine-to-machine

  • Compare trends across your fleet
  • Compare trends throughout production runs


  • Receive real time alerts when a variation is detected
  • Customizable CTQ metrics boil down to Pass/Fail

Sensor Fusion – Communicates with other sigma modules for holistic quality

  • Correlated with other sensors to determine root cause
  • Quantify deviations using statistical modeling

Automated Quality Reporting

  • Simplified and customized with your CTQ metrics
  • Auto-populate your regulatory requirements

Open Architecture

  • Your data is your data
  • Easily exported raw or analyzed data sets
