Extruder position and temperature values

Recommended Posts

Thanks a lot for replying. Appreciate it.

My intention is to record the temperature profile while printing. I know about OctoPrint which shows temperature profiles in a web browser. But I want to record that data as well. So, I was looking into how I can "talk" to the printer. What do you recommend for that ? I mean what is good way to talk to the printer through serial ? a terminal program ?

It depends... :)

I'm not aware of a "ready to use" tool, that fits your needs.

Perhaps pronterface would be a good starting point for your work. It has a graphical user interface, but a terminal window as well. Perhaps you can use the terminal window to test the approach and the "pronsole" part (and some additional scripting) for automation and recording.

It's open source - so at least you should be able to get some suggestions how to connect to the printer and send/receive commands. How are your programming skills?
