MatterHackers of Lake Forest Calif. is planning to demonstrate their new MatterControl Touch at 3D Printer World in Burbank, Calif., Jan. 29-31, 2015. The Touch is an Android-powered, touchscreen, WiFi-enabled, portable 3D printer controller that provides the ability to create, edit and prepare models directly on your printer using a familiar touchscreen interface based on the popular MatterControl Software.

Setup involves connecting the device to any compatible 3D printer via USB and running a simple wizard. Once complete, the printer becomes standalone and no longer needs to be connected directly to a computer. Users cans sign-in to send and receive print jobs or download models directly from the Web.

The Touch eliminates the 'SD card shuffle' between computer and printer. It provides all MatterControl features without reliance on a desktop computer, can display print job progress anywhere through the Web and text or email a picture of the complete print once it is finished.
