USING WIRELESS CAPABILITY VIA SIMPLIFY3D

Postby crimsonchin » Fri Apr 22, 2016 3:26 am

I have Simplify 3d and I would like to use its wireless connect to printer capabilities or print via USB. Does anybody know how to use these features with the N2 or N2+?

You can't. I slice my models with Simplify3D then upload the gcode file to the N2 with IdeaMaker and then use IdeaMaker to control the printer.

Seems that only ideaMaker is able to connect to the N series printers via WIFI.

In theory you could use a script to upload the gcode with scp. Not sure if there would be a way to have Simplify call this.

You could save the S3D-generated gcode to a specific directory that is monitored by a script. Whenever a file changes in the directory, the script would auto-upload it to the printer using scp. I almost implemented this a couple of months ago but got too busy with other things. Maybe I'll do it when I get a chance.

You can upload the .gcode file by ideaMaker after slicing the model in S3D.

Hi everybody... has this changed in some way? Or is the workflow still via ideaMaker?

I have asked repeatedly for the API, so far, no response. All of our other printers at the makelab are networked. It would be really nice to have the Raise 3d communicate with the server!

I have sliced with Simplify3D and am able to open the gcode file in ideaMaker. How do I get ideaMaker to send the gcode to the printer over WiFi? I can do this normally by slicing with ideaMaker and uploading. I can't find the option to upload on the gcode preview.

Nevermind I found it - On the left hand side there are 3 buttons: Edit the selected models, list of models and Upload print file. Click upload print file and then the little plus button at the top to select a gcode file to upload.
