Ultimaker with LabView

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker with LabView

I am going to be swapping out the extruder for an air pump and the hot end for a nozzle so that I can use it extrude ink but I want to be able to control the motors in the ultimaker and the air pump through one program and since LabView can generally be used to communicate between instruments I was thinking that would be my best bet.

I guess so, but I don't have any experience with labview, so I can't help you there.

It's certainly possible to write some VI's for controlling an Ultimaker. For an UM2+ you will have to control the USB connection (make sure Cura does not run as it grabs the connection). For an UM3 or a S5, have a look at the API docs which you find under http://yourprinterip/docs/api.

      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.
