yagv - Yet Another Gcode Viewer
This is a fast 3D Gcode Viewer for Reprap-style 3D printers, in Python and OpenGL (via pyglet)
It was written since I could not find a visualizer that fitted my needs, i.e:
- Load large files painlessly
- Let me choose the layer to display
- Color segments according to function
- Show a full 3D view for better undertanding of the code.
Designed in Ubuntu Linux; Expected to work in any Linux, Windows or OS X
Full code at https://github.com/jonathanwin/yagv and attached
- By default, open data/hana_swimsuit_fv_solid_v1.gcode if no file specified
- Colors segments according to their type:
- flying the head to the next extrusion point
- retracting filament
- restoring filament
- Allows displaying layers independently to examine them.
- Automagically splits the gcode into layers.
- Automatic scaling to fit the window.
- Zoom and rotation (Panning planned).
- Panning for close inspection not yet supported.
- Retract/restore detected but invisible (0-length segments).
- Designed with Slic3r output in mind, may not support other slicing programs (suggestions/patches welcome).
- Some gcodes unsupported:
- G91: Set to Relative Positioning (used by some slicers)
- G20: Set Units to Inches (usage unknown)
- Arcs (G2 & G3 ?)
Supplied demo gcode is a slice of http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5176 (loaded if called with no file)
Since I started this, hudbrog published his very nice GCode Analyzer/Visualizer; check it out: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:35248
Download and unzip the program.
Install python 2 and pyglet.
Make sure the yagv file is executable, run "./yagv [file.gcode]"
Alternatively, setup a symlink to the yagv executable in your PATH, or add the yagv folder to the PATH
Under Windows, you may need to run "python path\to\yagv file.gcode" instead (feedback welcome)
