Status of print job without using Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Status of print job without using Cura

What's the best way to check on the status of the print without using Cura?

I don't like to keep Cura open because it makes my PC spin up loud, but I'd like to know time remaining, temperatures, etc.

I got the webcam streaming in a browser, so that's not a problem.

I can get the times with a bit of work using

 

[ip address]/api/v1/print_job

 

but I have to do calculations to change the seconds into hours, % remaining, etc.

And I can find temperatures in a similar way, but again not very user friendly.

Has somebody made a script or applet that does this?

    part of the info you are looking for is in the Ultimaker 3 app. Is that an option for you?

    True, it's a partial solution--the Android app gives time remaining, but no technical data like temp. Thanks for the suggestion. Still hoping for a web applet or something I can share with our team.

    Did you already discover /temperature.html ?

    Nice for the nerds among us :)

    You know what? That is cool!

    No, I only had found

    /api/v1/printer/bed/temperature

    But I'm still looking for a cura-style all-in-one monitor thing.
