I finally got a chance to give this a try at the Midwest RepRap Fest

I'd bought the app Thursday night so I could us it this weekend.

I used a $50 black Friday special RCA 7" tablet. Plugged it into my Makergear Prusa Mendal running a fairly current marlin on ramps 1.4.

It just worked.

I love it when things just work.

It took me a minute to figure out that there is a tab on the right side to toggle to the printer controls.

I loaded a gcode file I'd sliced and printed on my laptop. It worked just as well as my laptop.

  1. Kudos to you +Mathias Dietz for making this. 

    There where some frowns at Midwest RepRap Fest (MRRF) about it not being open source, but I am not that much of a purist. I am happy to pay the small amount you ask for to not have to fight and fuss to make it work.
