Have Formlabs looked into adding the option of transferring files from one printer type to another, if on the same network subnet?
Perhaps, the flow would be something like this:
Printer 1 has run out of resin - or developed a fault, but is still working.
The lab has 2 other networked printers, all running on the same subnet
Printer 1 menu now has an option to search for other printers on the network.
It sees Printers 2 and 3.
Files menu now allows transfer from Printer 1 to Printer 2 or 3, irrespective of resin currently fitted.
Resin and tank swap now allows file from Printer 1 to run on Printer 2 or 3 without the need for the lab technician to contact the original operator and create and new file for Printer 2 or 3…
Technician (or original operator) now runs new file on Printer 2 or 3…
Note: ALL printers must be the same model; i.e., Form 2 or Form 3, etc.
Simplistic at best, but would add considerable practical functionality between printers that are already using compatible network protocols that should be capable of detecting similar printers on a subnet.
