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.

      • 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
