pmbroth: Why wait? I am printing S3D right now, just print to file, upload using device monitor folder function in top left corner, double click file after conversion to FC code and the print starts!
Want to print again, just double click again!
And "live" usb printing has its downsides:
- USB cable length limitations / placement limitations
- No computer sleep mode
- No rebooting if you feel like it
- And the autoreboot after a succesfull windows update is no fun in the middle of a job.
People are buying http://octoprint.org/ for most features that are already build into the flux!
And USB Memory stick printing is no fun either:
You cannot remove your stick while printing
Most printers have cumbersome navigation buttons (Especially the Twist & press kind that always selects the wrong option [Leapfrog])
goldensnake: Did you even notice you can upload gcode while printing?
This is a real time saver, you don't have to wait until your print is done, pure multi tasking!
However I am missing a delete button, so its will get kinda crowded after a while, but I am sure this will pop up before the final version.
Sometimes you need to restart the monitor to get the right printing time / percentage but im sure it will be fixed to.
The actual print time is very close to the Simplify 3D Guestimation and matches the Studio Print monitor.
