    GCodePrintr enables you to use any Android tablet or phone as a touch screen for your 3D printer and to run 3D prints without the need for having a PC running. With the intuitive UI interface you can always see what the print status is (e.g. remaining time) and modify print parameters (speed, temperature, etc.) during the print. Your Android device can also act as a web server to allow you to start a print remotely or watch the print status.
    IMPORTANT: Before buying this version make sure that your printer connection works with the free version: GCode Simulator (Free).

    3D Printing features

    Control your 3D printer from your favorite Android device and print 3D objects
    3D Printing from any Android device - PC less printing
    Connect to your 3D Printer over USB (USB-OTG Adapter required) or wireless over Bluetooth.
    Control the 3D printer with your touchscreen (X/Y/Z movements, homing, fan, temperature, etc.).
    Load your own gcode file (local file, network, web upload, Gdrive, Dropbox) and start a print from your Android device.
    Support for SD Card printing (upload, list files, autostart print)
    Easily modify speed during print and see how it impacts the print time.
    Web interface to view print status and Camera picture (Camera permissions required)
    Remotely stream the video of your builtin webcam (requires IPWebcam App)
    Works with many 3D printers (Reprap, PrintrBot, Ultimaker, Renkforce, Velleman, Anet, Tevo, Robot3d, Multec, etc.)
    Works with multiple firmwares (Sprinter,Marlin,Smoothie,Repetier)
    Support for various printer options (bedsize, baudrates, flip x/y axis, checksums, etc.)
    Only in the paid version:
    Ad free
    Dual Extruder Support
    20x User defined macros
    Favorite macro button for quick access
    Recover print function
    Web interface to remotely start prints

    Visualization and Simulation

    GCodePrintr can visualize gcodes and simulate a 3D print. It recognizes the print speeds and simulates the print in real time, but can also speedup the simulation(fast forward).
    Each layer is painted in a different color to see how a layer overlaps with the layer below.
    Layer by layer visualization and simulation
    3D View
    Show estimated print time
    Show remaining print time
    Show weight and cost of the printed object
    Show speed of X/Y/Z movements and extrusion (min/max/average)
    Show Print object dimension and required filament
    Show details of each layer
    Multiple UI Themes
    and more

    Remarks and Limitations

    Printer connection requires a Android device with USB-OTG support and a USB-OTG adapter.
    Tested with Slic3r, Simplify3d and Skeinforge generated gcodes.
    To load files locally from the device or dropbox you need to install a Android file manager (e.g. ES File Explorer)
    MakerBot uses a proprietary protocol called S3G where as others use raw G-Code, therefore only the gcode simulation is supported.
    Loading very large gcode files might fail, depending on the available memory of the device. OctoPrint support is experimental.
    Tip:Use GCodeSimulator for PC to send files from PC directly to your Android tablet to print them.
