Control printer environment (Temperature control / Lights / Fans and Filament Sensor) using Raspberry Pi GPIO

This plugin is intended to control your printer enclosure using raspberry pi GPIO (At the moment this plugin only support raspberry pi).

A list of things that you can do:

  • Add temperature sensors on your enclosure or near your printer
  • Add active heaters on your enclosure and keep the temperature nice and high for large ABS
  • Use custom Gcode to control rapsberry pi GPIO
  • Use custom Gcode to control neopixel
  • Use custom Gcode to control enclosure temperaure
  • PWM controlled outputs
  • PWM controlled outputs based on temperature sensor
  • Active cooling for good PLA printing
  • Schedule GPIO’s to turn on and off with a fixed period of time during printing.
  • Mechanical buttons to pause and resume printer jobs
  • Mechanical buttons to send GCODE to the printer
  • Mechanical buttons to control raspberry pi GPIO
  • Multiple filament sensors for dual or more extruders
  • Alarm when enclosure temperature reaches some sort of value
  • Notifications using IFTTT when events happen (temperature trigger / print events / etc)
  • Add sub-menus on navbar to quick access outputs and temperature sensors

There is also an API that can be used to interact with the plugin with other software
