3DES.network is a blockchain technology that aims to offer decentralized slicing for the 3D printing community. Find out how it works today in our 3DES review.
What Is 3DES?
3DES, found online at 3DES.network, is a decentralized slicing platform that promises to offer faster, cheaper slicing.
The 3DES ICO begins on September 30, 2017.
Overall, 3DESwants to enhance the 3D printing process of today using the benefits of blockchain technology. Today, in order to 3D print something, you need to model the shape, then repeatedly program and set the slicer before completing printing. The process needs to be completed multiple times. Special G-code generation is required, which is highly resource-intensive. And for a low power computer, the process can take hours.
The developers of 3DES.network believe they’ve found a better solution.
How Does 3DES Work?
3DES is a decentralized slicing platform that aims to offer a faster, cheaper solution to the 3D printing community.
Instead of forcing users to repeatedly set and program their slicing, 3DES allows users to model the shape, slice with 3DES, and print.
The principle behind 3DES is simple: 3DES uses a decentralized network to harness the processing power of a network of computers. These computers collectively put their processing power towards slicing. Someone who is 3D printing doesn’t need to rely on the processing power of a single computer. Instead, they can rely on a decentralized network of computers around the world.
Meanwhile, 3DES allows users with a computer to monetize their processing power in a unique way.
The end result is a more efficient 3D printing market that makes it easier for anyone to 3D print anything.
The 3DES Road Map
3DES was founded in December 2016, with development beginning in April 2017. The ICO is taking place throughout September, October, and November, with an MVP release of 3DES scheduled for January 2018.
The developers will release a beta version in May 2018, with a full public launch expected before the end of the year.
The 3DES Token Sale
The 3DES token sale is taking place throughout September, October, and November, with the pre-ICO launching on September 30.
There’s a total supply of 35 million DES tokens. 71% of those tokens are available during the ICO. 14% are reserved for the founders, 10% for the pre-ICO, 2% for bounties, and 2% for a private ICO.
Tokens are priced at 1 DES = 0.001 ETH.
Who’s Behind 3DES?
3DES is led by CEO Alena Anokhova, who has worked in the 3D printing space since 2015. Other key members of the team include Sardorbek Imomaliev (Developer), Dmitry Felinger (Developer), and Irina Medev (Marketing Manager). The team is based in Russia, and the core team appears to have met while attending Novosibirsk State University.
3DES, or 3DES.network, is a decentralized slicing platform that outsources slicing to a community of users. Those users exchange their processing power for DES tokens. Meanwhile, 3D printers can utilize the network to program slicing faster and cheaper than ever before. The end result is a more efficient 3D printing industry.
