Print Nanny will watch your job, so you can focus on other things.
You'll be automatically notified of common issues:
Print bed adhesion and layer warping
Blisters, zits, and retraction issues
Low filament supply
Clogged print nozzle
Need more control?
Print Nanny lets you manage your 3D printer from anywhere.
Pause, resume, stop prints
No bandwidth limits

Are you wasting time on routine tasks, like watermarking your timelapse videos videos or updating your in-stock products by hand?
The defect detection system uses a neural network to monitor your printer's webcam stream. This state-of-the art computer vision model was developed at Google for use on mobile devices like the Pixel phone. A compression technique called quantization reduces the footprint of the model, enabling real-time performance entirely on-device - no internet connection required.
Print Nanny's detector model is deployed to a Raspberry Pi, and integrates directly with OctoPrint for printer control. We engineered this system with reliability in mind. A 3D printer is a hazardous home appliance, like a gas oven.
You wouldn't trust a "smart" internet-connected stove, right? (please don't, see below for examples of what could happen 😬)
Working on it! Print Nanny is currently in a closed beta, so we can work directly with early adoptors. These folks don't mind a few rough edges or bugs, and they tend to be entrepeneurial themselves (e.g. running a tableshop miniature shop from their garage or managing a YouTube channel of satisfying timelapse videos). Does this sound like you?
Same, honestly. Print Nanny was created by a tinker-maker type who currently works at the intersection of Machine Learning and DevOps.
3D printing, electronics, and prototyping are her hobbies - but hobbies should be fun! Do you know what isn't fun? Stressing out about leaving a printer alone while you walk the dog (it's like leaving a gas oven on), or losing a 40-hour print that have been saved by intervention at the right time.
Yes! Source code and a self-guided development course will be published.
