Glad that you asked.
Like we said, The Detective makes mistakes. The primary reason why she makes these mistakes is that she hasn't seen enough prints to know for sure what are good prints and what are, uh, spaghetti. You can help The Detective get better at it by showing her the examples of failed prints and good ones.
The most effective way to show The Detective the examples is the Focused Feedback, which is described in details here.
In addition to the Focused Feedback, there are a few other ways to help The Detective, which are listed below:
Print failure-detection feedback
If you are in a rush, you can simply go to the TIME-LAPSE page and give her a quick or .
For instance, if The Detective claims that she has found spaghetti for a print, but the print was actually flawless, you should give her a big . However, if the print did have some problem, even if it didn't completely fail, you should give her a .
Upload your own time-lapse videos
The more The Detective sees, the better she gets. That's why it'll help her tremendously if you upload time-lapse videos for her to look at. For instance, there are probably a lot of time-lapse videos sitting in your OctoPrint's Timelpase folder - upload them all!
To upload your own time-lapse videos, go to the TIME-LAPSE page and click on the button with an upload icon.
Once you are on the upload page, drop as many time-lapse video files as you want to contribute. Once they are successfully uploaded, The Detective will tell you that she is busy looking at them. You can close the page at that time. The Detective will send you an email when she is done looking at the time-lapse videos you uploaded, and it may take a while.
Questions on uploading time-lapse videos
Does it cost my detective hours?
No. The time The Detective spends on looking at your uploaded time-lapse videos is completely on the house. :)
I am running my own private TSD server. Do the time-lapse videos on my server get uploaded to TSD cloud automatically?
No! We understand that nobody wants to get their videos uploaded without a proper consent. The time-lapse videos will safely stay in your private server. Of course, if you want to get back to TSD community by uploading these videos, you are always welcome!
