GCode Simulator & Printer - Test on Ultimaker


Recommended Posts

Posted · GCode Simulator & Printer - Test on Ultimaker


I have developed GCode Simulator & Printer App for Android which allows one to use a tablet/phone with USB-OTG support to control your printer.

Printing from a Galaxy Tab 2 on my Reprap printer with Sprinter/Marlin firmware works great, but I don't know if it works on Ulitmaker printers.

It would be great if Ulitmaker owners could test the GCode Simulator (Free) App and provide feedback.

Find more info on http://www.dietzm.de/gcodesim

Thanks in advance !

    Hi Keesjalink,

    not sure what you mean with "issue" ?

    GCode Simulator & Printer App for Android is available in the Google App Store already.

    It works with many printers (reprap, printrbot, ...), I just did not get feedback from Ultimaker users yet.

    Please install the free version and try if the basic printer control works on Ultimaker.

    If so, printing with the full version should be fine as well.





    Hi all,

    is there any progress on this issue yet?

    I desperately need to control UM I from a tablet running android.

    Thanks, keep up the good work, Kees

    Thanks. I had the impression no-one had tested it yet but if it should work, I'll risk a few bucks...

      • 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
