Hey guys! This is a gcode viewer for makerbot (3D) and 5D gcode written in processing. It's open-source and still a work in progress so if you would like to help out feel free to look at the git: github.com/nmsl1993/ProcessingGcodeViewer. It supports viewing dualextrusion prints colored correctly. Comment with any feature requests you have.
You should probably have a discrete gpu to use this; integrated graphics work but it'll be realllllly slow.
I realized this needed to be done while working at makerbot and listening to Ben Rockhold constantly bragging about pleasant3D (which is OSX-only and closed-source). So I guess he's largely responsible.
Inspirations I had for this:
Makerbot's ToolPathViz github.com/makerbot/ToolPathViz

I was searching such program a lot. I have just found this one and happy.
Programm start fine. I see button Â "choose file.." and 3 smal squares. I can see "platform".
But when i load any file all of that what i see - white square. I try your example file - same result.Â
I have win7 starter, last jave.
My be program can't fine some libs in my system, but doesn't request anything.
Does Somebody solve this problem? Â
I just upgraded to Slic3r 0.7.1 and tried out your beta version. Very nice, both in that Slic3r works much better now and that I can actually inspect it with your app. A couple of minor things: is there a keyboard shortcut to jump up or down one layer? It'd be great if I could step through with the arrow keys. Also, would it be possible to display non-extruder moves in a different color?
To be clear, you must unzip the entire archive and keep the executable in its original folder. At least in windows it certainly won't run without the dll's and jars.
P.S. If it does work for you please comment and tell future colleges what a cool dude I am.
If you want to download the source from git and use it yourself here's how:
1. Get the Processing IDE, install libraries controlp5 sojamo.de/libraries/controlP5/ and peasycam mrfeinberg.com/peasycam/
2. Download source from git.
3. Open ProcessingGUI.pde in processing IDE; navigate to Sketch --> Add File and add GcodeViewParse.java and LineSegment.java
4. Run it.
