ULTIMAKER S5 G-CODE EDITORS

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · ULTIMAKER S5 G-CODE EDITORS

Hello,

 

I have an Ultimaker s5 and I intend to modify the g-code in real time(while it is printing).I firstly want to know if it is possible at all.I'm aware that it is not possible with Cura. If this is possible, can anyone suggest any other way to do that?

 

Thanks in advance!

In theory, sure it is possible. In the S5, there's a Linux board that hosts Cura Connect and Ultimately sends gcode to a Marlin-based printer controller board. If you enable the developer mode, you can SSH into the Linux board, and though the code that lives there is not open source it is mostly Python and can be edited.

 

In practice? At best you'll end up with a working edited firmware, and you will have to make your changes/additions again and again when new firmware is released.
