WoofysPlace, only if you have an Ulticontroller, otherwise you print via USB.

Tim, people sometimes have problems printing on just one printer using USB so I don't think it would be a good idea. But I don't see why it wouldn't work if you run two instances of something like Pronterface. I'd just try it, worst thing that can happen is a failed print or two.

    USB printing is not all that reliable - I hope you end up getting ulticontrollers. Or ultimaker2's.

    Some people have been able to print on up to 8 printers at a time with hardware and software - I really haven't paid much attention but I think octoprint and a raspberry pi can do a few printers at once? Maybe? And doodle3d is a wifi to usb thing where you can send prints to it and it does the printing even if you computer is off. I think.
