Will this plugin cost money?

Short answer: yes

Longer answer: Print Nanny will be released under an Open Source license in 2021, financially supported by a cloud-hosted subscription service and business licensing model. That means the OctoPrint plugin, webapp, data & training pipelines, and machine learning model architechtures & trained weights will be 100% Open Source. 🦾 My mission is to provide:

  • Free (“free” as in “freedom”, not “free” as in “free beer”) self-hosted, self-supported community distribution.
  • Low-cost hosted tier for hobbyists with one or two printers.
  • Premium support for print shops and e-commerce stores.

Details about pricing will be announced before launch.

Participation in the Beta test will be rewarded with special discounts and swag giveaways.
