Use UP! as temperature adjustable Coffee Cup Heater

Post by xpeace » Sat Feb 03, 2018 10:14 am

Hello folks !

There is one functionality I really miss from the UP! printer...
:idea: Use the Heatbed as Coffee Cup heater. :idea:

It sometimes comes really handy to have an adjustable heatbed.

Now my question:

Is there any API I can use to add this functionality to the UP! when not in use for printing ?

I`ve made a quick addon for the old UP! Software.
It currently works with the german UP! 2.18 Version only.
But I can release the sourcecode, and it`s pretty easy to adopt to other versions as well.
It just uses the API to readout the Temperature on the management panel.
Then does automatic start and stop the preheat Button according to the inserted Temperature :-)

If anyone has webspace I can forward project files, sources and binary.
