Obico - previously called "TheSpaghettiDetective" - has been doing a great job of watching over the printers of hobbyists for a while now.
Started as an open-source hobby project, focused on detecting print failures, Obico now a full time job for the creator, Kenneth, and we have a lot of respect for what he has built!
At first Obico might seem like it covers all your 3D printing needs, but we started SimplyPrint, because it didn't cover ours.
If you're looking for an alternative to Obico, here are some reasons why you should consider SimplyPrint.

We made SimplyPrint due to the fact, that nothing else on the market quite fit our needs. We wanted a platform that was easy to use, but still had all the features we needed. We wanted a feature-rich platform, intuitive and easy to use, with a great user experience and actual innovation within the 3D print management software space.
In summary, we - humble and unbiased as we are 😉 - believe that the SimplyPrint platform is a great Obico alternative!Get started - free forever
