The VICI software solution comprises two desktop software applications, VICI Box and VICI Print.
The VICI BOX application allows users to add digital IP in the format of Gcode. Users are then responsible for ensuring the Gcode file is sliced using correct settings, with the correctly intended manufacturing device.
VICI Print is the desktop application intended for the end user to access the digital catalogue and One-Click-Print, from a remote location and outside of the trusted environment.
Each organisation is equipped with the role of a Super Administrator to handle permissions and overall management. At all times, the Super Administrator has full control over the organisation subscription with the ability to upgrade, downgrade, or create a custom plan at any time. This can be managed using Admin Tab on the left side menu of VICI Box Application.
Once the account is activated, users will have access to install or access either VICI Box, or both VICI Box and VICI Print, based on the invitation set up by the Super Administrator. Upon installing the VICI application, they will be prompted for the first time to enter a License Key, which will be delivered via email.
The Department Administrator can invite unlimited Contributors to their department and assign access to Sub-Catalogues with specified access rights. Contributors can only access the pre-installed applications, with no admin rights.
If prompted for a license key when using the VICI applications for the first time, enter the key previously emailed to you. If no key was emailed, use the prompt to request a new key or contact the Super Administrator of your organisation.
To begin, the role of the Super Administrator is to create a department within the organisation and assign a Department Administrator accordingly. From there, the Super Administrator has full access and control over all Virtual Inventory added within the department.
No, VICI Box can be used for accessing the Digital Catalogue for reviewing and/or reporting products, as well as contacting the designer of products when needed. Printing must take place from the VICI Print application
Our patented security protocol delivers end to end encryption allowing organisations to store their designs locally on their home server while enabling them to use their virtual inventory to manufacture parts in remote locations without any file transfer in the process and with no data at rest.
After file submission, the Administrator is prompted to edit the product. Once edited, select “Add to Catalogue” in order to make the product active, otherwise it will not be visible for other members of the organisation.
The part produced with VIC Print will be printed in the orientation as per the Gcode it has been sliced for. It is recommended that digital assets are reviewed by the owner in order to test the quality of the product before submitting.
Yes, multiple items can be submitted as a single folder. Individual items from this folder can be accessed from the VICI Print catalogue. The entire folder or a single item from the folder can be added to the print queue of the VICI Print application.
If you can’t access VICI Print, use the link in the Login screen to reset the password. If the problem persists, you will need to contact your Super Administrator. Note that an Administrator or Contributor account is necessary to use the application.
In the event of a failed print, the option to restream becomes available. The operator has five attempts to print that particular item before being prompted to contact the designer for support or printing advice.
