A new release of GCodePrintr – The 3D Print App has been published today. This update which comes with several bug fixes and some nice improvements.
★ Share a print with photo or thumbnail with other apps (e.g. twitter, pinterest, etc.) ★ Improved Macro Dialog with Gcode drop down list ★ Partial Russian translation (Thanks to Alexander Borovensky) ★ Anycubic printer added to supported list
Several Bugs Fixed: Fixed problem when reconnecting to the background service Fixed issue with web-upload (special chars in multipart boundary) Fixed wrong painting of G2 gcodes and more
My first test was some plotting using a pencil. It took me a while to find the right cnc tools to generate the toolpath. Most cnc tools (CAM) require Windows but I only have a Linux PC in my workshop. Pycam worked but crashed when reading a SVG file. I ended up using FlatCAM for Linux (meant for PCB milling) to do the plotting.
Luckily my GcodePrintr 3D Print App required a few modifications only to work with the GRBL firmware running on the Shapeoko electronics. My goal is to publish a modified version of the App for CNC milling (App name will be GcodeCNC). I’ll keep you posted.
