If you’ve stepped away and something has gone awry with your printer, you will receive a message. If the printer is out of filament, you will be alerted, as well as when the 3D print is completed. All you need is MakerBot Mobile, and files you have printed will also be viewable in your Print History folder there, as well as notifications. MakerBot Mobile for iOS allows a new level of efficiency in 3D printing and has cloud capability.

You can also choose digital designs from Thingiverse or your MakerBot Cloud Library, optimize your designs, and slice them, all on your mobile application.  MakerBot points out how easy it is to shop from Thingiverse, since you can use the mobile app to download multiple designs and add them to your collection, along with uploading and sharing.
