Magical box for Resuming 3D Prints automatically.

Resumer 3D is on Kickstarter now :

Similar projects worth following
Resumer 3D launched a project on kickstarter, it is online: Allows a print to be recovered after certain types of failure. Join in our Facebook group:
pipossible causes: tangle/filament break; nozzle jam; power outage.
Compatibility:Resumer 3D is compatible with marlin firmware based 3D printer, printing with SD card. Monitor: With this monitor box we can rescue a failed 3D print job automatically by press the OK button . Becuase of that it not just can detect the power off,but also can record every layer 's information (through USB cable) while SD printing. Thanks for Hackaday!!!


Where Can I buy Resumer 3D if I missed Kickstarter?


How does it work?

 Resumer 3D simulate the way of how 3D printer software works, sending out and receive G-code by USB port. By this way, when your printer is working, Resumer 3D will monitor the status of the 3D printer, record the printing data in real-time. Furthermore, there is a super capacitor built in Resumer 3D, even if the power shuts off unexpectedly, the super capacitor will keep Resumer 3D alive and store your printing data solidly. When you turn on 3D printer, as Resumer 3D has stored all the printed data, it can resume the prints fromany printed layer automatically. Resumer 3D makes everything easier.
        At beginning, many people are doubt that why Resumer 3D is so compatible as it can work with different 3D printers. Thanks to my team, we have tried our best to insert different USB drivers of different 3D printers; furthermore, as how Repetier-Host and Cura control 3D printer, Resumer 3D  use the same way to communicate with 3D printer and control it by G-code command.

Easy to use!

You simply connect Resumer 3D to your 3D printer via USB cable, leave it alone. No headache of editing G-code, no afraid of technical problems when you choose Rasperry Pi.

       Although we have tested almost all the 3D printers that we can find in the market, we may miss some of them. If you find that your 3D printer is not compatible with Resumer 3D, please get in touch with us, our technical team will upgrade the firmware for you, please click here you can download the latest firmware. Thanks for your support.

Use this software tool (for Windows) to check whether your 3d printer can be worked with our resumer3D box. check 2 points: gcode command(marlin is ok) and which the usb driver chip your printer use.

1) Will this work with control boards running smoothieware? It is set to Marlin in my slicer so I would expect it will work.

2) Will this work when printing Octoprint on a RasPi.

3) running the Printer_Check_Tool I don't see anything coming back from the printer except for temp readings. Once the print actually starts there is nothing.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Hi john, Thanks! 1) which USB driver chip of your motherboard ?resumer3d support: PL2303/CP2102/FT232/CH340/CH341/ Atmega16u2 /atmega32u2

2) I am sorry that currently resumer3d can not work with octoprint now.

  Are you sure? yes | no

The controller board is a Panucatt Azteeg X5 mini. 

  Are you sure? yes | no

robert wrote 06/10/2018 at 14:26 point

Hi john, we have not test on Panucatt Azteeg X5 mini, and maybe need to add this usb driver to resumer3d. so we will need to buy this board to debug. and will keep you informed when It works OK.

  Are you sure? yes | no

robert wrote 06/25/2018 at 02:36 point

Hi John,

1) Resumer 3D only works on marlin based 3D printer. 

2) Resumer 3d will work with Octoprint, my team is upgrading the firmware. Once it`s finished. it will work. 

3) if you can send me the log to We will check it for you.
