Controller User Interface

The GUI has three tabs: Status, Queue, and Settings. Please a breakdown of each screen below:

Status

When you power the system on, the touch screen will default to the Status screen. This screen shows the status of each Printer connected to your Controller. If you leave this screen, you can return by simply tapping the Status Tab near the top of the screen.
