Kenneth Jiang is a veteran software programmer and 3D printing enthusiast.
He specalizes in building extremely scalable, distributed web backend systems. In his 20 years of experience, he has built, sometimes single-handedly, numerous web applications that scale to millions of users.
While he is fascinated by how much 3D printing empowers makers like himself, he is also stunned by how grossly outdated the 3D printing softwares are. The Spaghetti Detective is his most recent effort at bringing new technologies to 3D printing.
“ Trying out the @thespaghettispy - it works surprisingly well. Stopped the print after a few centimeters of spaghetti. I'm impressed! I mean I can barely see the issue in that photo… ”

“ I'm watching TV, and I get an alert from the detective on my phone. I go look, and it looks the the print is finished. Looking closer, I see that it stopped at 98 %. Looking at the print, I see that the print has been knocked out of alignment. If the print had continued, the last 2% would have been offset. What I find amazing about this, is that the detective could tell that there was a problem without any spaghetti being generated. I didnt realize that the algorithm could detect this failure as well. Well done dev team!

“ Keep up the good work. This program is invaluable. Saved me at least 10 messes already.Worth a few false positives not resuming quickly.
