MakerBot is famous for taking care of their making community—as well as being leaders for this much reveled-in revolution and industrial transformation. With all of that in mind, starting with 3D printers and giving enthusiasts and 3D printing operators on all levels the tools they need to succeed with, maintenance and upgrades are key—and they never fail us, as the new features and innovations just keep coming.
The maker community out there is without a shred of a doubt very busy producing amazing new innovations, inventions, and products. Being able to do so remotely via mobile is something that everybody experiences first as a huge luxury, almost too easy, convenient, and too good to be true; then, it just becomes absolute necessity like the rest of life that we carry on through our smartphones.
As everyone offers feedback, bugs are worked out, and new features come available, we greedily gobble up the latest updates—and are glad to announce the latest on the mobile front with MakerBot Mobile 2.1 upgrades available for both iOS and Android.
“Now, for the first time, iOS and Android users are getting the same mobile experience thanks to the MakerBot Mobile 2.1 upgrade for iOS and Android, making your 3D printing experience even better,” states the MakerBot team on their website, regarding this latest exciting update.
First, of all, and most importantly—as this is what we are looking for, after all—is even better control of your printer. Now you can, after it has been mounted, finish attaching the MakerBot Replicator Smart Extruder to your 3D printer.
Secondly, and very importantly, in establishing further control while you may be out of the vicinity (in today’s world of modern conveniences, that might mean, um, on the couch) of the 3D printer, you are able to enable remote monitoring of your equipment—as well as disabling it. Also available is the ability to check out the status of what’s going on with your 3D printer from anywhere within the application. Last, you’ll be happy to find that there’s more information for preferences in cloud services and firmware.
MakerBot always welcomes feedback from their customers, and of course that’s how they get all the great new ideas for upgrades and updates, offering you all sorts of cool new features on a regular basis. If you are looking to perform the update, click here.
If you aren’t yet using MakerBot Mobile, it’s worth checking out as you can completely monitor and access ‘everything MakerBot’ directly from your phone or tablet—and these days that’s how most of us like it. The app gives you the ability to prepare files and download files from Thingiverse. You can monitor, pause, and cancel prints, as well as receive notifications.
