UM3 Linux apps / plugin system?

Recommended Posts

The Ultimaker3 will run Linux on it's onboard computer. Are there any plans for an app / plugins system?

First ideas for plugins:

Automatically live stream every print to a (private) youtube video

See:

Automatic timelapse creation

Running an app on the onboard computer might mean we can make nicer timelapses, for example taking a picture at the start of every layer. I'm hoping this means the head is on a more consistent position.

Maybe the timelapses could be stored on the Memory stick?

Easy remote access using vpn

See: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/23534-remote-monitoring-control

These could be apps, published on a custom repository (ppa).

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
