Logging data?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Logging data?

I'm looking to purchase an Ultimaker 3+ for work.  We do data analytics and cloud storage, and I want a printer that we can retrieve information (like head position, head temperature, percentage completion, etc) and send that information out to the cloud, present web pages, etc etc...

Is there any way to retrieve this sort of information problematically from the ultimaker 3+?

regards,

There is a pretty extensive API on the printer, but this would require the remote server to poll the printers. You could also make a small service that runs on the printer itself that sends the data to the cloud. All systems on the machine are connected through DBUS, but those API's aren't stable just yet, so the second option will probably require more work / upkeep.
