Status of print job without using Cura

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
