First, I am providing 3D Print Services on B2B and B2C, so I try to operate my printers 24 by 7 or so.
For the moment, I am working alone, so I don't always go directly to my office before any meeting (my offices are 20 km away from home).
When I have critical jobs (deadline or touchy prints) I like to have a view of the complete print to decide if I change my plan and rush to my office to fix the problem.
So basically, my need is a view of the final product to take a decision on a reprint or fix.
For sure, a snapshot of the part or a timelapse, even if all the finest details won't appear, would be a good solution.
It would avoid me investing in additional network cameras (and switches, fixtures, ....) to have the feature.
Thanks for you help
I am glad to hear that you enjoy our Cura Connect application.
Unfortunately we try to avoid tweaking of the firmware in order to be able to service your machine when you run into problems.
Your feedback does makes sense thought, but I would like to know a bit more about your situation if I may (get into the context and whatnot)
Could you tell me how an image of the end results (Completed or not) impacts your actions when you are not in the office? Does an incomplete print job makes you rush to the office earlier in order to restart it? Do you have a colleague fix it for you? or do you just like to know what to expect when you finally get there?
We have been playing around with the idea of a snapshot of the finished product or even a Timelapse of the proces, but have not worked on creating these features yet. I would be happy to hear your thoughts about what information you would need to improve your workflow.
