GCodePrintr lite - 3D Printing
by: MDCode • 4
Control your 3D printer from your favourite Android device and send gcodes to the printer.
This is a version of GcodePrintr with a reduced feature set. it allows you to control a real 3D printer using USB-OTG cable but without any visualization and simulation of the print.
It is recommended to install the full version (GCodePrintr) and only use this lite version if the visualization part causes problems. Mainly on devices which are not powerful enough to do printing and visualization at the same time.
This version offers full printing support (without any visualization of the print)
This is basically GcodePrintr without the Simulation & Visualization part.
IMPORTANT: Before buying this version make sure that your printer connection works with the free version.
Connect to a printer using USB OTG Cable.

It has a build-in network receiver which is enabled by long-pressing the "load" button. Once enabled it listens for gcode files in port 53232 . Use Gcode Simulator for PC to send files from PC directly to your Android tablet to print them.
Feedback by console based output.
Does not include simulation and visualization, please buy the GCode Simulator & Printer App if this is needed.
Remarks and Limitations
Developed for reprap printers but should work with other printers (e.g. ultimaker) as well, tested with Slic3r and Skeinforge generated Gcodes.
To load files locally from the device, sd-card or dropbox you need to install a Android file manager (e.g. ES File Explorer)
Only absolut positioning is supported. Gcodes with relative positioning will likely fail.
Loading large Gcode files (multiple MegaByte) might fail, depending on the available memory of the device.
Printer Control Feature requires a android device with USB-OTG support and a USB-OTG cable.
Before buying this version make sure that your printer works with the free version.
