Integration of RollingUp, the Filament Spool Manager app as a module in Printoid (v10.04+)
“RollingUp” in an application available on Google Play:
I will try to answer to your questions before you ask me them 😉
1. What is RollingUp?
All details about this application are here:
2. Why another application?
RollingUp is not an application only for OctoPrint users. It’s an application for all the makers, even those without OctoPrint.
This app is standalone: you can use it without OctoPrint, without Printoid. It’s a brand new application for everyone.
3. But what about Printoid?
Yes, there is a link with Printoid! Printoid v10.04 integrates RollingUp as a module, and it can communicate with it!
4. How it is integrated with Printoid?
From Printoid, in the files manager, you can select a file and directly input its length to a spool from RollingUp!
If a file is loaded in OctoPrint, you can also input its length from the dashboard of Printoid by clicking on the file name (below the progress bars)
When the screensaver view is showing, you also have a new button to input length on a spool.
And last but not least, of course, you can launch the RollingUp module from the left menu 😉
5. Which versions of Printoid?
The Filament Spool Manager is embedded in Printoid for PRO and PREMIUM users.
6. Seems cool! And what about the filament manager plugins of OctoPrint?
Some of you are using plugins in OctoPrint to manage their filament.
RollingUp is not compatible with these plugins at all, and will be never connected with them. I’m not the developer of these plugins. And this is not my goal at all. Because I want to make this application available for everybody, I repeat: there is no link with RollingUp and OctoPrint at all.
RollingUp is a standalone application only. The communication with Printoid is an extra feature, and it’s already cool!
7. Can I see it in action?
Yes. Here are the screenshots 😉
