Farm dashboard: quick info, farm stats, queue info, printers & more - maybe#182

We’re thinking of how we could create a “Dashboard” page. The dream is of course to be able to 100% customize it, pick a bunch of different widgets, place them wheverever you’d like, resize them etc. etc….

But, for starters; a static dashboard with a set of widgets - maybe toggleable.

So, we’re looking for feedback from farms & schools; what would you like this dashboard to show?

Our ideas are;

  • Printer status, like the top cards on the “Printers” page, showing you how many printers are running, when the next one is finished and so on
  • Queue status: quick overview of how many items are left in your queue, how long it’d take to print them all
  • Quick statistics cards & graphs: maybe filament usage, prints per day, queue items in backlog per day
  • For when the maintenance overview is live (#21), next scheduled maintenance or “Printers to check up on”

Specifically for schools (probably?);

  • Amount of engaged students past [X] days (students who started prints or added to the print queue)

So, print farms & schools of SimplyPrint, feedback and ideas are very welcome. This is not something we’ll start doing right away, but we’d like to get the conversation started and slowly build up a project description and concept art for the UI.

When Shopify integration is live, a widget that had # of orders today, $ of orders today would be cool.

We previously used OctoFarm to manage our printers, but since we’ve moved to Bambu Labs printers, we haven’t had a good dashboard to see all of them in place. Most important for us would be printer status (current file, percentage done, estimated time left, current temps) and errors/alerts. It would also be nice to have an image from the printer’s camera to give a visual update of how the printer is doing.

@Nomascus I don’t know if you’re a SimplyPrint user yet, or if you’re awaiting the Bambu Lab beta release, but if you already use SimplyPrint; is there anything that we currently don’t cover on our “Printers” page, where we show all the printers, percentage done, time left, current temps, etc., that you’d wanna see covered on a more generic “Dashboard” page?

I’m in the “awaiting the Bambu Lab beta release” category so perhaps your printers page already takes care of what we need.

I love the idea, I created the suggestion of integrating with Dakboard as I would also like to display calendar and forecasting information too. So if you could hook the dashboard into something like Google Calendar that would be great.

My preferences would be:

  1. Printer status (activity, whicch file, time left, cost etc).
  2. Past 30 day stats.
  3. Maintenance forecast (when implimented).
  4. Calendar/Forecasting.
  5. Current queue stats, time to complete etc.
