Remote view and control

Recommended Posts

Posted · Remote view and control

Well Ultimaker2 on order :)) so figured before it arrives, I might as well do something productive to save me wishing away the days. So - I have also been thinking about ways to remote control the device when im away. Does anyone have a set up to remote view and also if required ways to remote kill the print job.

If so I would really be interested in the set up.

Hi Mark,

I do all my slicing in Cura but then send the gcode off to OctoPrint http://octoprint.org/ running on a Raspberry Pi (but you can install it on any Linux or Windows machine with the right python libraries).

OctoPrint is awesome as it has a very fully feature webUI which (if you know how to port forward securely) you can make available over the internet. It also has good webcam support which gives a live view of the print plus takes snapshots every time the z-axis changes and creates a time lapse video of your print. I know Cura has this feature as part of the print menu but the ability to manage the print online is a good bonus for Octoprint (also you can get rid of the watermark which annoys me a little in Cura).

Hope this all works well with your UM2!

Danny

Thanks Danny for the advice,

Didn't realise there was a webcam option in Cura, must admit I have not seen it in the settings?
