Welcome to filament.uno!

Welcome to filament.uno, a brand new site offering a simply inventory to keep track of your filament in stock. The goal of this site is to offer a simple method to find which filament you have in stock, and also provide a way to find how much you print (Or not).

Currently, while the site is live, there are still some features that I would love to add. In the upcoming months I will be adding more features to the site. If you have any suggestions, please let me know in the tracker here. If you find any bugs, you can use the same tracker.

One of the goals of filament.uno is to keep inventory easy. By having a already predefined manufactures and filament flavors listed on our site it is just one button press away from adding something to your inventory. Right now we have a few manufactures and filament flavors listed on our site, and this is where the community (hopefully!) helps. Everyone can add new manufactures and filaments to the site, so others can start keeping inventory as well. Adding a new manufacture or filament is as simple as filling in the form with some basic data, and after approval it will be visible for everyone.
We also keep track of the total amount of filament you have in stock, and how much you printed. And we give every user who registers a public page (If enabled, you can disable this feature on your profile page, and it will be only visible to you) with some statistics. Want to see a example? Here is mine: https://www.filament.uno/profile/paul. As you can see, I have way too much filament ;).

The usage of the site is completely free, you only need to register a account and after that you can start adding filament to your inventory. There are no plans to charge for features on the site right now. 

In the upcoming weeks/months several improvements are already planned and partly in development. A short summary of what is coming:
  • A app for both android (Already in development and expected to be launched next month. Please send me a email at [email protected] if you want to test it!) and iOS
  • Improvements to the inventory page, as it is currently pretty hard to find what you have in your inventory with a larger amount of items
  • Possibility to submit suggestions for existing filaments and manufactures.
  • I am also looking into making a plugin for octoprint that gives you the ability to send the printed amount directly from octoprint
  • And much more.
As said before, if you have any suggestions, please let me know at https://github.com/Filament-uno/site/issues
