Idea for a new plugin: 3D preview of files


#1

Hi, I have an idea for a new plugin..
Octoprint shows a list of uploaded files by filename. What I would really like is that you can see what the file looks like when printed. An image of the 3D print.

Technically this could be done because the g-code preview on http://gcode.ws/ does a nice 3D look of g-code files.

Maybe I will develop it myself, first I have to learn some more Python :slight_smile:

Not a bad idea. Would complement my stl viewer plugin, which does that for stl files that have been uploaded to your octoprint.

Yeah, maybe my idea is only useful for users that upload gocde files, like me. If you are working with STL files you probably won't need it.
