Today I would like to announce the release of AtCore 1.0.0. This is the first stable release for AtCore. Since its the first release and we have not written a “real” client for it yet we include our test GUI. If you own a 3D Printer you are encouraged to try AtCore for at least one print job.
Using AtCore Test GUI
Using the AtCore test gui is really easy for Linux you only need to make the AppImage executable then run it, On OsX you run the .app file and for Windows run AtCoreTest.exe. To do anything in the application you must first connect to a printer. Use the connection tab in the top area left area of the window. Select your Device and Baud then click connect. If for some reason your firmware is not able to be autodetected or you wish to speed the connection up you can select your firmware from the drop down list. If you don’t know what firmware you have try using repetier. You can find more information on the Test Gui if you view its User Guide. If you are intrested in hacking on/with AtCore you may want to check the Api Docsumentation.
- The test gui’s log will show an extra set of I/O for each connect/ disconnect you have done while its running (fixed)
- If your printer does not restart upon connection with AtCore then AtCore will not send the firmware request correctly. If this affects you just select your firmware plugin from the list, or send the command M115 from the command tab.
Be sure to Report Bugs that you might find.
