Maintaining 3D printer control has overwhelmingly required users to be in direct proximity to the unit unless it already features wireless capabilities, so the Borlee Box is here to help upgrade systems everywhere.

The Borlee Box works by enabling existing 3D printers to be upgraded with wireless capabilities to allow makers to connect to their system from their smartphone. This enables them to print directly from their smartphone, monitor progress and much more.

Available now for preorder on Kickstarter, the Borlee Box 3D printer controller can also relay information about the printer regarding part maintenance to ensure everything is running smoothly. Best of all, when a print job is complete the Borlee Box will notify you on your smartphone.
