This screen recording shows a simple preview of a script we made to send 3D files in Blender to the Octoprint server for 3D printing.
Stay tuned for more information soon.
Octoprint is a 3D print server software for managing 3D printers over the network via a web browser. The Octoprint software can typically be installed and rund on a Raspberry Pi hardware. Octoprint is developed under open source. (http://octoprint.org/).
This particular Octoprint installation in this video has the CuraEngine installed so that the model is sliced into GCode on-board the Raspberry Pi computer. (https://github.com/Ultimaker/CuraEngine)
Blender is a popular software for 3D modeling, animation and rendering. It is developed under open source. (http://blender.org)
