Track loaded material in 3DPrinterOS

Andrew Updated by Andrew

The material tracking feature is a useful tool for organizations to let other users know the material, color, and filament left loaded in the 3D Printer.

How to enable Material Tracking?

  1. Go to the Printers Page
  2. Go to the Printer settings in the three dot menu
  3. Enable Material tracking toggle
  4. Specify material color, material type, filament left and the nozzle size. None of this is necessary so you could only track one parameter, if needed.
  5. Voila! The material data will appear on the printer line and in the printer selection pop-up.

It is possible to trace both extruders for dual extrusion printers
  1. If there is not enough material, the user won't be able to start the print job

How did we do?
