Printer Maintenance Notification

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printer Maintenance Notification

Since the change between v7 & 8 of firmware for the Ultimaker S Series, as we know we lost a lot of features.


Currently on v8 there seems to be no way to tell if the printers require maintenance remotely.

In version 7, I was using the local API to generate a notice on our dashboard, but since v8 this is no longer functional. 

As a public school we do not have $18,000 AUD per year to be able to utilise the cloud api so as of now it is a manual check of Digital Factory or a manual calendar alert on our desktops to check for maintenance every month.


Can there be some form of remote notification built into a new firmware release?


There is no standard installation type and having printers spread out over multiple building and campuses, checking the control panel isn't feasible.

Please don't tell me you are going to lock all the api access behind the Excellence tier, as this is totally cost prohibitive.
