Has Prusa worked on "smart"/reactive printer firmware?

Hi,

 

I have a Prusa iMK3S and think its great. But maybe it could be greater...

 

Has Prusa worked on control systems that have a more reactive/"smart" type of control. For example if the print starts to fail identify it with via a camera feed? Or with sensors added to the printer and using their outputs?

 

You seem to be the type of company that is always experimenting so I just wonder. I've started to build one myself, but if you open sourced something already that I've somehow missed it would be great to know and save me some time! Or if you tried and found it impossible for some reason, that would also be good to know 🙂 

 

Thanks,

Nick

p.s. I have googled and found spaghetti detective and a few research articles that I could use and work from, but perhaps someone knows something I missed

This is a user-user forum, and it's likely Prusa won't see this. While those are fine ideas, they are very likely to add considerably to costs for features that not every user will necessarily want.
