Screenshot of Pronterface

Pronterface is a software package that sends GCode and controls your 3D printer.

It is included in the Official Solidoodle software package.

[edit] Tips

  • Make sure the serial port speed is set at 250000, not the default 115200. At the default speed, it will not be able to connect to your printer.
  • After connection, it is a good idea to check the "Monitor Printer" box, as that will stream accurate temperature readings to the Pronterface GUI for you.
  • The bed control in Pronterface is reversed for the Solidoodle, to move the bed down you must click one of the 3 buttons for moving the bed up (0.1, 1, or 10), and vice versa if you would like to lower the bed.
  • Be careful when manually moving the axises in Pronterface, there is only endstop switches on a single side of the solidoodle, so it is possible to tell the extruder to move to a location that it shouldn't.
