Knowing status of 3d printers

Is there any way I can check remotely the working status of 3d printers before coming over to physical location for printing? Thanks.

You can do a limited check using the jump server to log in to the individual printers and see error messages. Far from perfect, but at least an indication of some errors and whether the printers are in use and when they might be available. JumpServerFAQ - Dallas Makerspace

I wonder if we should get a small set of traffic cones (ala lasers and woodshop) so that troubled printers can be identified and easily seen on the camera feeds. @Team_3D_Fab

And yes, I’ll get the cones if there is some consensus that we should do this

Before you buy cones we need to talk to the chair. Since it’s his say in how committee money is spent
