to stick with super simple:

TAP WITHOUT AN APP

Whatt.io is a combination of a cloud-based product information platform, programming tools and manufacturing methods to integrate RFID tags (NFC)  inside products created mainly with 3D printers.

Instant product information –no app needed.

With NFC tags embedded in 3D printed parts connected to whatt.io, a simple and easy way to connect product information is established. Enabled products can connect to their own lifecycle data creating true traceability. The platform allows a regular smartphone to identify a specific product by simply tapping it. The process is instant and there is no need for an app.

Powered by whatt.io, material, manufacturer, recycling, and assembly info is pushed straight to the end users phone, and the source of information is controlled through admin by the brand and product owner.

a flexible cloud platform

Complete lifecycle product data

whatt.io is our cloud platform that enables a connection between the physical product and  lifecycle product data from cradle to grave. NFC enabled parts using additive manufacturing connect the actual individual part to whatt.io cloud platform, returning information about:

  • manufacturing

  • material

  • maintenance

  • assembly

  • recycling

  • spare parts

  • ownership

whatt.io tools and admin for brand owners and 3D print farms

Tools & Admin

what.io admin and dashboard offers powerful customization to create unique messaging and a scalable inventory.
Brands are able to offer consumers to download digital content as a value-add exclusively when the physical product is purchased. 3D print farms can easily manage spare part printing pipelines based on instantly accessible product data and 3D models.

PASSIVE IoT

IoT is a network of devices that allows data about each device to be accessed, and exchanged. whatt.io:s platform enables complete, real-time visibility and control of any item linked to the Internet. IoT helps you solve your challenges, streamline your processes – and keep costs under control. A passive RFID system consists of RFID tags/labels, RFID readers and antennas, RFID middleware, and in most cases, RFID printers.

Advantages of passive IoT

The “passive Internet of Things”  obtains energy from the environment. Liberated from batteries or power cords passive IoT terminals can be very low-cost and small-size. Advantages include:

  • Traceability

  • Recyclability

  • Product information

  • Digital spare parts

  • Assembly info

  • Material data

point of sale like never before

Understand customer needs with real-time analytics, set content logic based on product data, location information, previous consumer actions, and more to ensure everyone is guaranteed a relevant message.

end to end functionality

Whatt.io is a cradle to grave life cycle product information platform, connecting 3D-printing teams, sales & marketing, and end users.

Brand owner

A Team consists of account profiles (individuals) that work together in a Team. They share material, products and parts.  A team would host a manufacturing facility producing parts.

A client is the brand owner and has the rights to the products and parts. A product always belong to a client (brand owner).

Team Cloud admin

Whatt.io is the connection between users, brands and manufacturers. The platform allows you to gather and store lifecycle information and make it available when needed. With 3D printing we can build a process of manufacturing that allows every single item to be unique. That means not only from mass customisation point of view, but also unique in that it will get a NFC (Near Field Communication) tag embedded inside the main part of the product.

The whatt.io framework eliminates the need for an app for the end user.

Our system uses the internal standard “tap” to open a URL that is unique to each product manufactured with whatt.io. Nothing needs to be installed on the Android or iOS phone to read the data by tapping on the part. NFC needs to be enabled in the settings for the Andriod phone, Apple iOS is always on.

The passive IoT from

cradle
to grave

In an ever-more competitive global marketplace, IoT-enabled smart manufacturing offers vastly improved visibility into assets, processes, and products. Take control of every step of the product journey by identifying, tracking and tracing products throughout the entire supply-consumer chain. IoT saves time and money by improving performance, while also gaining insights that can bolster your R&D process..

true tracEability

Today’s consumers demand transparency into how products are sourced and manufactured. what.io offers a trusted, dynamic experience including  location-based end-of-product-life instructions for recycling or reselling.

NFC tag ISO 144443

NFC tags for integration during 3D printing. The 25 mm diameter NFC tag 213 (RFID) is for embedding inside a part, a slot of 26x1 mm and a pause in the G code will allow adding the chip during printing. Compatible with whatt.io product lifecycle solution and enables you to add the chip after production, on packaging or on products where integration is not possible.

NFC chip integrated inside

NFC tags for integration during 3D printing. They are developed for Lostboyslab specifically with FDM/FFF and 3D printing and with bed temperatures up to 90 degrees. Works on Prusa, Markforged etc with PLA, PETG, Onyx etc.

whatt.io Factory APP

Part of the whatt.io toolset is an Andriod and iPhone App that enables the 3D technician to quickly wake up the NFC tag and connect it to the cloud database. Choose brand and product and it will retrieve data from various sources and hard code the products tag with its now unique identity,

whatt.io cloud Admin

The cloud admin is a web based administration where all brands, products, parts and the 3D print farms with their 3D technicians are hosted. Products are added with their detailed information about product, manufacturing, material, recycling, support and spareparts that then will be connected to the physical part.

editor and unit view

Whatt.io will enable buyers of products to know where the material comes from, when and where the product is manufactured, how to assemble and disassemble it and how to repair and recycle the product.

Easily manage your product data on the whatt.io hosting platform.

The product page editor assists you in deciding what information should be displayed in the UNIT PAGE view. In the editor you can switch on and off whole sections like spare parts, introduction, assembly, material and support sections.

Live sync between editor and unit view.

The cloud admin view allows for teams to organise product information and keep track of all parts manufactured as they get a unique code for each individual Product. The admin allows for live updates, so information never grows old.

  • Easy maintainance/updating

  • Secure hosting environment

  • Guides and support

Smarter Products with additive

The next industrial revolution is upon us. Whatt.io is aimed to be a glue, a connection between users, brands and manufacturers to gather and store lifecycle information and make it availible when needed. With 3D printing we can build a process of manufacturing that allows every single item to be unique. That means not only from mass customisation point of view, but also unique in that it will get a NFC (Near Field Communication) tag embedded inside the main part of the product.

Need spares? - order or 3D print

With Whatt.io you have direct access to spare part information and additional features like download of parts in a digital form for printing new spares on your own. It is up to the actual brand owner  to allow for different features possible in the whatt.io platform.A quick "blip" with your iPhone or Android will take you to the products totally unique home on whatt.io where your owner information and other info regarding recycling, material, warranty and assembly instructions are available.

Smart and connected - Use the NFC tags inside to drive home automation

Another benefit of the whatt.io platform and 3D printed manufacturing means, is that the Integrated NFC tag has the ability to be connected not only to whatt.io. The tags can also be used for automated shortcuts for smart home applications like Apple Home, Google Home and Alexa. The main tag is locked for whatt.io, but can be a link to home automation. Some 3D printed products have additional tags can be modified by you.
