Repetier-Server

Objective

The aim of this server is it, to offer a link between 3d printer and host software. It allows the concurrent connection from different sources over the internet/intranet to your printer. It stores jobs to run and sends them on your printer. Data is send as the printer allows it.

Why do you want this instead of direct communication?

You can put it on any old device you have or even on a Raspberry Pi. The server needs very low resources and is very stable and reliable. It can run several printer at once. You can move your printer anywhere you want, if you have a ethernet connection to the device running the server. And last, but not least, sending a job is now lightning fast. It is a fire and forget thing. Once you have send the job from your host, it does its work without the host. You can disconnect the host, close it and reconnect later. Nothing will interrupt the printer. You can even spool new jobs while the last one is running, also the server will ask you to clear the printer bed before starting the next job.

Status

It is at the beginning. Compiles under MacOSX, Linux and Windows. Daemon mode works in Linux and MacOSX Inserting/Printing jobs/models works. Sending commands works. Webinterface needs more functions, more tests are needed.

API

The server uses communication over a webserver. With some simple calls you can upload new jobs, send any command you want or manage the server. The benefit of a simple API for all function is, that you can easily write new frontends to control the printer. For the start I plan the communication with the host first. When finished I will also add a webinterface, allowing to use the server from any webserver including tablets and smartphones.

All commands are send as web requests to the configured port. If the path of the uri starts with /printer/ it is handled as an API request. These requests answer with a JSON formatet response. The first level always has this format: {error:"",data:} The JSON string is UTF-8 encoded.

List configured printer

Command: /printer/list Return: Array of printer. Each entry object has the following content: {name:"",slug:"", online:<0 or 1>,job:""} Possible error: None

Jobs that are send, but didn't get triggert to start have the state waitstart. This allows it to send more then one job in a row. After completing a job, the state goes to waitstart waiting for a user to tell that the new print can start.

Sending printer commands

Command: /printer/send/?cmd=line Return: Nothing Possible errors: "Printer offline" "Unknown printer"

Get printer responses

If you want to monitor printer responses, you need every response. A difficult task with a polling system. To overcome this problem, the server stores the last x responses. With this command you get all responses following the given start response id. If you need a filter, you can do with the filter parameter.

Filter is a binary value removing items where the bit value is set: 1 : Commands 2 : ACK responses like ok, wait, temperature 4 : Other responses 8 : Non maskable messages

Command: /printer/response/?start=&filter=<0|1|2> Return: {lastid:,lines:[{id:,time:"",text:"",type:<0-8>}],state:{state vars here}}

Handling jobs

Jobs can be very long. During storage handling the send data resides in ram, so on small computer like the Raspberry Pi it would be a problem to send large files. To help with that fact, the job can send split into several chunks which are appended on the disk. Jobs are stored in a job directory of the printer to release the memory. This also allows a reprint of a job when the computer got shut down. The job will still be there and can be startet.

Command: /printer/job/?a=

Show all jobs: /printer/job/?a=list Upload job: /printer/job/?a=upload&name=&autostart=<0|1>&file= Delete job:/printer/job/?a=remove&id= Start job: /printer/job/?a=start&id= Kill job: /printer/job/?a=kill&id=

Model handling

You can store any number of models as gcode in the model database. From there you can copy them any time into the print queue.

Show all models: /printer/model/?a=list Upload model: /printer/model/?a=upload&name=&autostart=<0|1>&file= Delete model:/printer/model/?a=remove&id= Start model: /printer/model/?a=copy&id=

Special files

There are special files that are run on special times like start/end of a job or pause. These are habled by the script subsystem:

List scripts: /printer/scripts/?a=list Load script: /printer/scripts/?a=load&f= Save Script: /printer/scripts/?a=save&f=
