ยท 2 min read

The Spaghetti Detective is partnering with 3D Geeks, one of the most popular 3D printing apps, to bring mobile push notifications to our users.

What does it doโ€‹

When you have 3D Geeks app integration activated, you will receive push notifications on your phone for the same failure alerts and print job notices as the ones you receive in your email. In addition, you will also receive push notifications for print job progress (25%, 50%, and 75%).

How to activate 3D Geeks push notificationโ€‹
