Computer for the Gcode


Recommended Posts

Posted · Computer for the Gcode

Not sure if this is the correct place to put this.

The way I understand the transfer of gcode is that your computer needs a USB connection throughout the entirety of the print. Are there any specifications the computer would need to meet. For instance would a netbook be suficient at sending the gcode? I wouldn't assume there would be any special need for hi specs just for the sending machine considering it can be done via SD card.

Thanks in advance,

    A netbook would work for sending GCode. But I wouldn't use RepG then. RepG is quite "heavy". Something like PrintRun or SendG is more suitable for weaker machines.
