I have 5 MBs in my CAD lab. I did not buy them BTW. Administration did. Can I connect these to Digital Factory? Mr. Griffin says its possible but I do not know how.

tldr; Digital Factory does not support 3rd party printers at the moment.

 

We currently support only Ultimaker 3, Ultimaker S3 and Ultimaker S5 (both revisions) in the Digital Factory. The communication between printer and Digital Factory is an Ultimaker-specific protocol. Other printers could be made compatible to follow this protocol, but Ultimaker would leave it to the manufacturers of those printers to do so. Someone could also write a small application that sits between a (USB) printer and the Digital Factory protocol to relay and translate the messages. We can't really block either solution, but we don't actively support it either, so you might run into compatibility issues.
