GCode is a programming language which tells 3D printers (and others) how to make a model.
GCode Simulator recognizes the print speeds and can simulate the print in realtime, but you can also speedup the prints (fast forward). Each layer is painted in a different color to see how a layer overlaps with the layer below.
In addition it analyses the Gcode file and prints additional information like:
It calculates various print details like
-yx move distance
-print object dimension
-average print speeds
-number of layers
-speed distribution / Acceleration
-weight and price of the printed object
The GCode Print simulator allows the following actions:
Load a Gcode file
Show details about the loaded Gcode
Jump to next Layer
Jump to previous Layer
Restart from first Layer
Developed for my reprap printer but works with other printers (e.g. makerbot) as well, tested with Slic3r and skeinforge generated Gcodes.
