Join the waitlist for our full failure support BETA

Get ready to rest easy knowing PrintWatch will be able to detect a wide variety of defect types, professionalize your 3D printing game with our latest BETA signup for enhanced failure support!

Don’t you hate it when you start a long print and come back after a few hours to realize its ruined because it lifted from the bed or it became a stringing nightmare. Luckily, thanks to PrintWatch you can now get notified and stop the print immediately after a defect occurs, giving you the chance to restart your print and save valuable time. At printpal, we’ve been hard at work adding support that actually detects these failures.

Sign up for our BETA program now or get PrintWatch TODAY and be among the first to access these upcoming features!

Bed Adhesion / Warping

Bed Adhesion, or Warping issues arise when the first layer of material fails to stick properly to the print bed. This problem can cause prints to warp, detach, or completely fail, compromising the quality and integrity of the final object.
Good bed adhesion is critical for achieving precise and reliable prints, as it ensures a stable foundation for subsequent layers. Addressing this challenge requires a keen understanding of bed surface, temperature settings, and material properties to ensure a smooth and successful printing process.
Recognizing the critical importance of a solid first layer, PrintWatch now introduces advanced AI detection to identify bed adhesion errors as they occur. This cutting-edge feature ensures your prints start on the right foot, significantly reducing failures and enhancing overall print success.

Layer Shifting

Layer Shifting occurs when the layers of a 3D printed object misalign during the printing process, creating a noticeable step or offset that can significantly affect both the aesthetic and functional quality of the print. This error can be caused by various factors, including mechanical disturbances, improper printer settings, or issues with the printer’s hardware, leading to a disruption in the print’s continuity and precision.

PrintWatch will now be able to tackle this challenge head-on. Our latest feature employs AI to monitor prints in real-time, detecting layer shifts the moment they happen. With PrintWatch, ensure your creations are precise and flawless, as we empower your printing process to catch layer shifts instantly, allowing for a prompt and comprehensive response.


Spaghetti is the most common defect that occurs in 3D printing and it happens when the printer continues to extrude filament without adhering to the intended layers or pattern, resulting in a tangled mess of filament strands resembling spaghetti.

This issue typically arises when the print detaches from the build plate or when there is a failure in the print process, leading the printer to extrude filament aimlessly. The outcome not only wastes material but also requires cleanup and restart of the printing process, highlighting the importance of consistent monitoring and calibration of the 3D printer to avoid such mishaps.

PrintWatch is already capable of successfully identifying when these defects occur, giving real-time notification of the failure and giving users peace of mind when printing.

Other failure types

The full failure extension of PrintWatch will support all of the possible failures one might experience with a 3D printer. Below are a few examples of failures we can detect using the latest trained version of our model.
