    I'm surprised on one has brought it up yet but...

    Fusion 360 for designing
    Cura 15 for slicing because Octoprint (what I thought would have been mentioned by now) only takes profiles from v15
    I have Octoprint running on a Pi with a webcam and a nifty app on my phone and watch that let me monitor, control, start and most importantly cancel prints remotely. Nothing worse than a print failing in the middle while you're gone and wasting a bunch of filament. Here are some pics...

    What's the nifty phone/watch app?

    FWIW, I also have a camera on my RPi, and a relay board. Via a web browser (on my phone or whatever) and using a Dynamic DNS from NoIP.com, I can login to my RPi, see the state of the print, pause/stop the print, and also turn the printer itself off.

    It's called Octo. I'm obviously using it on Apple gear but I'm told there's an Android version as well.

    How does the security work with these remote print monitoring apps?

    It depends on your router. If you have a NAT router, you can set up port forwarding to your PI (OctoPi is what I use) and then you limit the open ports on the PI. I do it a bit differently. I do NOT open any ports. I have a VPN server at the house. My tablet has a VPN client. The only port I open up is the VPN port to the VPN server. For all practical purposes, my tablet at work is on my home network and can access the PI without exposing my network to the friendly people out there trying to see what wonderful things they can exploit on my home systems. Another alternative is to open a remote desktop port to a single computer on your network, log into that computer and from there open the OctoPi management web page. The extra hop makes the video a bit choppy but you are only checking to see if it is still running so a bit of jumping around is not an issue for me.

    2017 adding 2 more candy canes, 7 Mid trees and a Halloween show. Removing most 2812 strips and replacing them with bullet pixel mounting strips. Replacing many buck converter waterproof bags with printed boxes.

    I go the VPN route as well. OpenVPN, it's free. Google it, straightforward howto's online and you can run the VPN server on the same Pi as Octoprint if you want to.
