Android app does not warn when run out of filament

Posted · Android app does not warn when run out of filament

Dear Ultimaker, your android app sends a push message when a print starts, which is arguably not very useful (I know when I start a print, since I can only start it by being physically present), and when it's finished (which is marginally more useful). What it doesn't do, is the only thing that would really be useful, i.e. push an alert if something unexpected happens and the printer stops printing. This is really important: if caught and resolved immediately, it can make the difference between a failed and a rescued print. Will you ever make this feature available? Since push alerts are already implemented, I would think that it's not a big effort to add an alert for these situations.
