matterQ is a simple 3D print server that runs on a Raspberry Pi making it easy to print without the need to keep a computer connected and switched on. matterQ can run a single printer or an entire print farm.
By using Wi-Fi with a matterQ server the 3D printer can be anywhere such as hidden away in a cupboard or garage and jobs can be sent to it.
matterQ is configured to work out of the box with the Ultimaker 1. If using a different printer, multiple printers or WiFi see the config page.
The easiest way to print is direct from Cura.

3. Click Print to see the LPR window.
