3D PRINTER Software

by AxiumSA

I am in need of input as to what is needed for the new software im writing. 3D Printer is being designed to keep track of fillament used and stock values. as well as able to view makes for clients. It will keep track of filament remaining on a roll and what that roll was used for.

Select "Stock"
in this part of the software you can add new stock see what stock is left and ascertain if you need to order additional colors you can brows through the database and see whats in stock. if you add a new stock item you will be able to add a new image or it will use the internal images if available in that colour.As with stock,

Select "MAKES"
you can brows through the database and see whats in been produced. you will be able to add a new image of the made item to the record as will as client info and time taken for the build allowing costing to be done for client builds.

Select "Charts"
shows the database for stock and builds (makes)
in chart form and will be expanded to give selectable details on request.
it is being worked on to to produce a printout for the client of the build.
and costings if so needed

Select "Maintenance"
This will be for regular servicing of the printers

I am creating this software to fill a hole in small business and home monitoring of 3d Builds
It is intended that this software will be put up for FREE use for members of Thingyverse.
you will have to register for the login details if you wish to use this to its fullest extent.
By registering, Any ideas for expanding the software and updates will come with your registration

So any ideas Post them here ... THANKS :)

Thingiverse Web Site

by AxiumSA

I do not intend to leave just yet . and set up this group to see if we can make a difference, Make things work better and possibly get the backing of MakerBot / Thingiverse as an Advisory group to the site. but before that I was hoping that thingiverse will get off their ass and do something about all the advertising going on here, if enough people on here were to take some action, They may take notice.. its thingiverse that should be doing something about it and not its members having to take up arms. and try and solve their problems for them.

My idea would be part solution :-

  1. Limit to 2 new items per day
  2. Appoint moderators from all quadrants of the globe to cater for time zones, giving them ability's to take down . ban. and report.
  3. use of a real email address to register, not Hotmail. Gmail. or any other 3rd party provider.

etc etc etc ..

Let see what happens

Hint !!
'HINT" I found if now and again you wipe the build platform with Acetone it gets rid of the grease build up and sticks far better and stops lifting...

We are a smart group of builder's.

by ssasser

We are a smart group of builder's that create new ideas and feed off of each other to create innovative projects. We have been spammed by low life's that only care about themselves. If we are smart enough to create such wonderful ideas then removing these idiots should be an easy task. If we work together, and continue to build we can do great things. I for one, am not going anywhere and I have many friends all over the world and I can assure you they will regret messing with this site, even if this site doesn't care. I hope and pray that if you like sharing and building then join this group. I look forward to being a part of the future and helping to build it.

Thank you in advance,
