File Sharing

MatterControl CLOUD SYNC offers a few different ways to send files.

Cloud Library

Cloud Library is a feature of MatterControl that allows for a user with a account to store 3D models and G-Code files in the Cloud and access them from any instance of MatterControl that is connected to the Internet and also signed in to the same account.


The Send button in the QUEUE pane allows the user to select a destination QUEUE in an instance of MatterControl to which to transfer a 3D model or G-Code file to. Both instances (origin and destination) must be signed in to a account.

Sync Dashboard

Upload 3D models and G-Code files directly to a MatterControl QUEUE using a web-based UI.

Printer Control

MatterControl CLOUD SYNC allows for remote control of printers.

Sync Dashboard

Use the CLOUD SYNC Dashboard to control a connected printer. From the Sync Dashboard, users can:

  • Start printing the first item in a QUEUE in an instance of MatterControl
  • Stop an in-progress print
  • View a camera feed from a MatterControl Touch/T10 tablet

Add a model or G-Code file to the QUEUE

Start a print remotely


Use the Notifications section under the OPTIONS pane to set text message, email, or sound notifications that alert the user when a print completes.
