    Buddy, your editor is a God-send for my 3D printing efforts.
    I use the editor exclusively for all PETG submissions which is my goto material.
    If there was a 'send to print' option from the editor app, it would place the Cherry on the cake.

    Your efforts are appreciated daily in this printing household my friend.

    Yeah, my goal is to add the following features to the editor (priority order):
    1. send to printer
    2. preview of gcode.
    3. read STL files.

    I am living in area in east Europe where is pretty cold at winters, without the editor it fails some time to melt properly.

    I am using Buddy's editor all the time with PLA,ABS,PETG,

    Cheers!

    Okay, I have been thinking about octoprint and the stock cube3.

    First, I think this is a doable project, but it is going to be complex.

    What I'd like to know is the use cases people would have for octoprint. I am only beginning with it, so my only goals would be this:

    1. Communicate with the Cube3 wirelessly
    2. Send STL files to the printer
      1. Able to convert STL to Cube3 along with setting the Cube3 file with the material installed on the printer.
      2. Allow user to select which cartridge will print the file (no multi color printing, yet)

    3. Send Cube3 files to the printer
      1. Make sure that the Cube3 file can be printed with the current materials installed (i.e., if the Cube3 file is configured for PLA on the left side, and the printer has ABS installed on the left side, don't bother printing it.)

    4. Send files created in Microsoft 3DBuilder to the printer (3DM?)
    5. Start a print without having to intervene on the printer (might not be possible)
    6. Pause a print
    7. Cancel a print
    8. Power off or restart printer

    All of this precludes my earlier investigation into the TCP/IP stream protocol that I have documented somewhere on my laptop and then write it all in Python.

    Oh, yeah, learn Python. Can't be that difficult, I already know many programming languages.

    I've already created a prototype program that allows Cube3 files to be sent from the command line to the printer via WiFi, so I know it can be done. TommyDee has tested that one for me. But that was about a year ago, and I just started looking at that again.
