Hello Printoid user!
Let me introduce me and Printoid. I’m Anthony, a french Android developer & Engineer since 2012.
The Printoid project has started on June, 2016. At this time, there was some independent Android applications for OctoPrint on Google Play. But no one was satisfactorily in my opinion. So I’ve started the development of my own one.
3 months later, the first release candidate was ready to be broadcasted on Google Play.
A tool for your 3D printer
Today Printoid integrate all the needed features to pilot your 3D printer from your mobile phone or your tablet: axis, temperatures, ventilation, print informations in real time, etc. But also, many exclusive features like the video streaming, the custom GCODE/SSH/CURL/SYSTEM commands panel, the direct access to the OctoPrint web-interface, the real-time 2D simulator, 2D and 3D visualizers, a smart files manager, and much (much) more.
Why a smartphone application instead of simply using the OctoPrint web interface? The answer is pretty simple: we can do much more with Printoid on your phone than the OctoPrint web interface can do on a phone’s web browser. Android provides powerful tools like the notifications, the widgets, the floating objects, adaptive layouts according the screen size or the device orientation…
Printoid is finally the smartest tool for your OctoPrint servers! Let’s try it now, the Lite version is free on Google Play and includes all the standard tools for your 3D printer!
