problem fix in real time, it is possible?

Recommended Posts

Posted · problem fix in real time, it is possible?

Is there a system that monitors the piece layer by layer during printing and that can modify the print settings to correct any errors in real time?
such as the lambda probe for engines, or many other systems controlled in real time.
Machine vision could be used.
What do you think?

    As far as I know, such a system does not currently exist.


    There are systems that monitor what the printer produces using machive vision and machine learning, and stop the print when "spaghetti" is detected. See https://www.thespaghettidetective.com/ This particular system is not compatible with Ultimaker printers though.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I think that the system used for see the "spaghetti" ( I'm Italian and I like pasta), is a free application can you manage through the code for check everything's, in this case the "spagetti".

    I think that this idea is very interesting and that push the big companies to adopt a vision software for check the correct print.
    I hope that soon we will come to print with all material in the super easy mode.
