Ways to enqueue prints

Hi, we have 3 UltiMaker printers that we're considering using through Digital Factory.

As I understand it, we can enqueue new prints directly from Cura.

 

However, since we print a lot of "standard" items, often by people without Cura (by reusing gcode-files on SD-cards), my question is which ways you can enqueue prints to the Digital Factory?

Is there a kind of database of our existing prints, that can be selected for printing, without the need of Cura?

Best case would be that we use a tablet/browser for enqueuing new prints.

 

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

     

    Great idea! Currently you can only send new print jobs from Cura and add those to the queue of the connected printers. We're also working on something that will likely solve your problem!

    This would be great feature. I love the idea behind digital factor, but i do think it way to limited. 

     

    What kind of functionality are you looking for? We'd love to know how we can make the product better.

     

    Note that we're shipping new features regularly, and not all of those are laid out in blog posts or announcements. Also some features are only available when subscribing to Ultimaker Essentials.

    Well in that case you can contact me for in-depth  feedback. I can make an invoice for it.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
