Hi TT, you said that new CPU upgrade is arriving soon that will work better with Studio and bring wifi etc to all printers ... I have a question about it .. is it changing the way UP printers work or it's just cosmetic? ATTM from what I see the slicer is doing all the hard lifting and shooting only the direct motor movement info to the CPU ... so contrary to reprap project, where printer itself interprets the g-code and calculate the movements, all the movements are pre-calculated in software and the UP printer's CPU just gets the stream of "motor X on by this much, motor Y on by this much and motor Z on by that much; now motor X by this..." ... is new CPU doing the same or the new CPU has some knowledge about what it's doing and where everything is?
