Feature request: gcode console


Recommended Posts

Posted · Feature request: gcode console

I don't really know if this feature is already there. I just couldn't find it.

It would be interesting to have a simple console for sending gcode commands directly to the printer. It should also display the responses, to be able to query for configurations. This would allow faster set up and callibration, as otherwise you must write the code in a notepad, save it in the SD card, insert the SD in the UC, and finally run the code. And then rinse and repeat.

In its simplest form, it should be very easy to implement.

An extra feature would be to be able to see the lines of gcode that have not been sent to the printer and be able to pause and insert commands in realtime (with the only lag being the buffer in the printer).

    Oh, so it's already there!

    That tab shows a cursor, but I can't write anything. It only shows a log and I can move the cursor and copy the displayed text. But never write or paste my own text. I have tried disconnecting, connectring to the printer and during printing. When is it supposed to work? and do you need to add line numbers?

    Actually, couldn't make the 3D view work in my computer, so I wouldn't be surprised the term does not work too.

    And Joergen, I'll try print run. Thanks to you too.
