3d-Printing with CUPS

Posted · 3d-Printing with CUPS

Hello folks!

I've got an idea: is it possible to do this: a modified version of cura and driver that makes it possible to send a gcode or stl to the printer in the same way we print documents from our computers.

I think this is possible to do with CUPS, a CUPS-filter (mime-type application/x-gcode or application/sla) communicating with octoprint through the rest-api.

I am currently working on the interface between CUPS and octoprint.

I am happy for any(!) feedback, resources and experience you have!
