I would like to see some sort of web based control (or even a smartphone app) for the Snapmaker 2.0.
At a bare minimum, a status page would be nice, so you can check work progress without having to physically be at the tool
I’ve noticed a theme with 3D printing in general is that not many people have their printers right next to their computers that they regularly work on. Many of us have used 3rd party solutions (i.e. OctoPrint) to bridge this gap with other 3D printers.
The SM2, I feel, is in a different category and could benefit from a Native solution.
I know about OctoPrint. Used it on my Tevo Tornado. Used it even more on my Tronxy X5S. But neither of those even came close to the specs of the SM2. Also, I tried OctoPrint with my A350, and just didn’t like it for some reason. Maybe its because I like the intuitiveness of Snapmaker’s Interface. And when printing from OctoPrint, some built in features (Filament Runout, Power Loss Recovery) become null.
The fact that the SM2 already includes Wi-Fi was a plus to my purchasing decision. And the ability to connect from Luban via Wi-Fi and send a print directly to the machine is great.
I prefer to not print directly from my PC so I use the Send Via Wi-Fi option for pretty much every print. But once printing, cannot check status without physically going to the printer, or guessing how much is done from viewing my camera.
A Remote interface native to the Snapmaker 2.0 I feel is a great way to add more control options for users.
