Print multiple files for a drawbot/sand table

I've been searching for a specific plug-in to no avail. I have a motorized corexy sand table controlled with a Ramps 1.4 and octoprint. The table is similar to the V1 engineering ZenXY design.

I need a method to run the "printer" in a continuous mode where I can either create a "playlist" of gcode files or randomly shuffle through the files on the SD card. I've tried searching the repo so far with no results. Does anyone know of a plug-in or alternative method to accomplish this?


A sand machine is what I built the Playlist plugin for, it's just not in the plugin directory.


This is great. It's just what I was looking for. Will you consider any feature requests?

It'd be great if there was a way to shuffle the playlist (play it randomly) and also add a user specified delay between finishing one file and starting the next. That way you could enjoy one pattern for a couple minutes, hours, or days, and the table would then start a new one.

Great work!
