ProntorfaceUI in Cura 3

Recommended Posts

Cura 3.1 will have a first step towards a fuller featured print monitor:

https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/pull/2669

NB: I fully understand that this is not more than a start, and that more is needed, such as extruder temperature control and extrusion/retractions, but also fully manually sending gcode. It will get there, eventually.

Whow, great...

as Dim3nsioneer mentioned, a simple code sender would be great to be also included, but for the first shot, it's great to be able to just jog the thing... :-)

btw: any chance to just port existing things e.g. pronterface, universal gcode sender,...?

"Just port" is hardly ever easy. Also, since I am doing this in my own time, you are going to have to deal with my personal opinion that pronterface is just plain ugly. So even if it were easy to "just port", I would prefer to make something that integrates with the printmonitor that is already there.

To put it more bluntly: sure, someone could "port" pronterface into Cura 3.x as a plugin, but I would rather step on a Death Star model worth of Legos in the dark than work on including pronterface into Cura ;-)

    • "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.
