Abstract: With the advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the manufacturing industry began to pay special attention to the introduction of solutions based on modern technologies. These include rapid prototyping techniques, which are also popularly known as 3D printing. As the 3D printing industry develops around the world, new brands of machine manufacturers, as well as companies providing services in this field, keep appearing. Thus, a need has arisen to organize and systematize processes and define certain quality standards. In line with Industry 4.0, it is also extremely important to consider modern production management solutions that use IT systems to integrate networked distributed components of manufacturing processes. In this context, a research gap has been observed in the development of a quality control procedure for 3D prints that can be implemented in an in-house cloud. For this reason, the main objective of the paper is to present the author's online platform, which presents a sample procedure for quality control of 3D models. The paper also analyzes the costs associated with the quality control of 3D models assuming that the company has its own infrastructure, manufacturing components and qualified staff.
