The best monitoring app

The app has some difficulty differentiating between spaghetti and necessary wires. Even sleeved, at some point your wires must be visible to connect, and the detective notices these wires (especially if your camera is in the front of the bed looking towards the back.)
This is my only complaint and I imagine over time the app will be able to better distinguish between the two.

Honestly this app works better and more consistently for monitoring prints than octopod anywhere, polymer, or kraken. Visuals are cleaner than those apps, plus you don’t need to pay anything. As long as you submit your videos that were being watched you continuously get more free hours. Now that my free trial month is over I am going to get the pro subscription because it is absolutely worth it.

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.

Love this!

This has saved me so much peace of mind and also cost in filament waste! I pay the premium version of this and it’s amazing. Customer support is great although I have never had to use it because nothing has ever gone wrong in this system. As a highschool engineer, I can start and monitor print between class periods, and I even use the remote controlling to use the print head to knock the prints off the bed and print a new print. Set up is easy, and interface is simple and clean just the way I like it! I have been using this for years and the whole thing rocks! Totally recommend!!!
