Ide

Postby JamesW » Sun Aug 19, 2018 9:09 pm

I don’t suppose there is any kind of IDE for the touch screen or control software? Or maybe some way of sending statuses to the serial port? I’d like to monitor what is going on and ask my smart speaker what the status of the print is and get it to announce when it’s done.

I'm using additional PC and internet cameras to control my machine remotely. You can stop, pause or resume printer also.

Thanks Shelton. I have an addition camera already too. The commands for stopping/pausing/printing are through the existing software and it doesn't provide any way of interfacing as far as I can see. Actually, I can't even get it (the remote printer connect window from IdeaMaker) to maintain the connection so that it updates regularly.

if the connection is dropping, you need to go into the touchscreen and limit it to 100mps and it should function better. I know after I did that I am getting faster and more stable uploads to the printer from ideamaker.

Thank you Firesped. I will try that. It would be nice to see it working.

Firesped...
Are you talking about the 100 mps in the Ethernet setup? I use a wireless connection. (and my connection rate is 100 mps in Ethernet anyway.) The router connection is good. I have a few wireless devices further away in the same room. I don't actually have a problem with the connection initially. I suspect there degradation of the wireless single once the printer starts.
