Effortlessly track filament usage and manage material settings on-the-fly with Filtracker!

Filtracker is designed to reduce user error associated with improper material settings management while providing UI and text alerts to prevent filament runout before it occurs. The plugin streamlines the typical 3D printing workflow by automatically slicing and printing STL files with the proper settings for the material that is currently loaded on the printer. This workflow is further optimized by tracking print success rates network-wide and fine-tuning material profile settings based on historical data. Filtracker scales seamlessly and can be deployed for just a single printer all the way up through an FDM factory floor with hundreds of printers.

Simply scan a unique QR code located on the spool of the loaded material

This QR code can be scanned with the same camera used for streaming video prints, so most Octoprint users can integrate Filtracker into their workflow without purchasing any additional hardware.
