reading out sensor data and sending them to the cloud.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm supposed to evaluate how to read sensor data from an Ultimaker to upload them into a company cloud.

Is it possible to do that with my own software? Are there any applications that read data like temperature, error codes and so on and write them to a database or a log file?

sorry if that has an obvious answer, but I don't have access to the machine right now. I hast want to get a picture of what is possible.

I would appreciate some pointers into the right direction.

Yes, with the status API you should be able to get most of what you want. Check out this page:

The things you ask about are all available without a need to authenticate:

* /api/v1/printer/status

* /api/v1/printer/diagnostics

With a little bit of scripting it should be fairly easy to copy that to a database.

I created a small Jupyter notebook to show you how it can be done:

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
