3d-Printing with CUPS

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
