Why SimplyPrint? Reason #2

Get more out of your printers; Filament Management System & more

SimplyPrint features an innovative filament management system that allows you to keep track of each individual spool of filament.

  • Monitor the amount of filament remaining on each spool digitally

OctoEverywhere and SimplyPrint comparison

Nothing is black-and-white, and there are always pros and cons to consider when choosing a 3D printing cloud solution!
And we're not here to simply tell you, that SimplyPrint is the best - we want you to make an informed decision, and of course there are pros of using OctoEverywhere as well!

Pros of using OctoEverywhere

Using OctoEverywhere has its advantages and disadvantages.

OctoEverywhere does what they set out to do super well; to give you a simple way to access your OctoPrint, Mainsail or Fluidd instance.

  • Easy setup
  • "Tunnel" access to OctoPrint, Mainsail or Fluidd
  • AI camera error detection
  • Free all the way
  • Delete webcam links

We understand why OctoEverywhere is many people's first choice when it comes to remote access to their printer - it's easy to find for OctoPrint users, due to the smart and descriptive name, is easy to access the interface you're used to, wherever you are.
SimplyPrint's mission is, that you shouldn't be "settle" for the OctoPrint interface, and to show that there can be more to a 3D print cloud platform, and this is not OctoEverywhere's main objective, which is the biggest difference between the two platforms.

Cons of using OctoEverywhere

OctoEverywhere's simplicity also becomes their biggest weakness.

Today, a 3D print cloud platform should indeed be "simple", but not also innovative! It should be more than just access to the same old OctoPrint panel, which - as much as we love OctoPrint - could use a makeover and some improvements to both functionality, usability and mobile friendliness.

  • Lack of functionality in own panel; simply forwards you to OctoPrint, Mainsail or Fluidd
  • No more printers please - best if you only have one
  • Very small max file size on uploads (20MB)
  • More limited than at first glance; it looks like most things are free, but after a trial period you quickly find out that you have to pay for simple things, such as App access
  • Lack of own app (only paid access via third-party apps)
  • Not EU-GDPR friendly (no cookie banner, privacy settings, and data resides on servers in the US)
