TSD great and the App is icing on the cake

TSD works very well automatically identifying print issues and the app is a nice bonus.

Recently TSD spotted a failure “smells fishy” of one component within a multi-component print. I was printing black PETG on a black bed and when I first looked in I didn’t see any issue. However while double checking I saw that one component had broken loose and spaghettie was forming. I got lucky and was able to stick that one component back in place so it didn’t trash all the others. Lost that one but TSD helped me save the others.

App is a nice bonus to remotely visually monitor. I am a TSD Pro (paid subscription) user but 3D printing is just a hobby. My TSD client runs on a raspberry pi4 using the Pi-HD camera and 16mm lens.

Helps get the most out of your 3D printer

This program has really helped me get the most out of my printer, enabling me to keep an eye on it while I’m away. It’s ability to detect problems gives you real peace of mind and helps you avoid building a birds nest and wasting filament on a print that has already failed.

Yes, you do have to pay, but giving feedback on each print earns you more print time, and odds are unless you’re constantly printing, even the lowest cost plan will give you more time than you need.

For example, for $4/month you get 50 print hours, which comes out to a little over an hour a day. But you get 2 bonus hours for each print you give feedback on. So if you print every day, even on the lowest cost plan you still get 3 hours.

Go away for a weekend, stop printing for a few days because you run out of filament? Your hours stockpile and don’t expire.

For me, the cost is totally worth it for the additional productivity and peace of mind.

Good so far

I’ve been using this since the beta or testing through test flight app. Like it and works well. But think the GUI needs a change up. Looks outdated and kind of plain. Also the big “the detective is not watching” or if it is watching it’s a bit intrusive looking. Maybe a little smaller or just a line, not a big box and put the temp on the same “page” as the the progress. Cancel and pause buttons maybe half the size and next to each other instead of stacked. Great idea, more of looks I feel like being redone some. I don’t use this to detect, I just use it to monitor. The guy that gave it one star is ridiculous if he thinks a company will do everything for free.
