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?

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).

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
