You can only connect one 3D printer to an AstroBox Touch. So, for example, if you have three 3D printers, you'll need three ABTs.
However, with the mobile app, desktop software, and web portal, you can simultaneously connect to multiple ABTs. For example, if you have three 3D printers ALL with ABTs connected to them, you can use the mobile app (or web portal, or desktop software) to control any, or all, of them.
First off, you are a rockstar for backing the campaign, thanks! :-)
The Beta software for Desktop and Mobile versions of AstroPrint are currently only available to backers. If you have ALREADY BACKED the campaign:
- On the ABT campaign page, go to UPDATES.
- Scroll down to UPDATE #2 (published on May 11). (This update can only be seen by backers.)
- Open the update.
- Everything you need to know is there, including the links you need to get started.
Don't worry, we didn't forget about you! We are processing the Beta requests in batches. Every few days we add in the backers from the previous few days.
It may take up to 3 days (from the time you fill out the request form) for us to process your request and send you the info you need to download the Desktop software and/or install the mobile apps.
If it has been more, please check your SPAM folder for messages around the time you filled in the form and 3 days forward. There have been reports of emails stuck in there.
As a reminder: At this time, only backers have access to the Beta software. If you have backed the campaign and need to request beta access, please go to Update #2 for instructions on how to do so. (Update #2 is only visible to backers.)
