UM3 Send API/Gcode questions

Posted · UM3 Send API/Gcode questions

Along with my recent explorations with the UM3, which fbrc8 has been very helpful with, I had an idea for developing a manual leveling guide which uses the sensors for feedback.

After reviewing the api docs, it doesnt appear there is a current api for sending direct gcode commands. I did test the send print job api, but it simply fails reporting bad request or something.

1) Is there an existing API or way we can remotely send gcode commands and receive the output?

2) What are the correct commands to retrieve/set the current leveling information - bed height offset from 0, nozzle z offsets, etc. I assume this is specific to the UM3

Thank you

    To be able to do this right now, you need to turn on the developer mode.

    Then you can log in with ultimaker@ to get into a command shell.

    From there you can use the command sendgcode to send gcode directly.

    It will also have the ability to get the information you need.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
