About 3D Fox - 3D Printer / CNC Controller

Print G-code files directly from your Android device via Wifi, Bluetooth or USB OTG/Host port.

3D Fox is simple to use, has a clear and meaningful log screen and works great on small/inexpensive devices as well.

Developed with a Reprap Prusa i3 with Mega2560 + Ramps + Marlin/Repetier + Slic3r, Wifi module ESP8266 and BT module JY-MCU, it should work with many other HW/SW combinations.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
• Web interface monitor printer and to upload/print files from your PC/Tablet browser over the network.
• Video streaming of the device built-in webcam.
• Take back control of SD card printing jobs after losing connection with the printer. You can use this feature to manager several printers with the same device: start a print job on printer A, then do something else on printer B, finally go back to printer A and take back control of the pending printing job.

NOTES:
• You must put your G-code files in \3DFox directory of your Andorid device. Use a file manager (we recommend ES File Explorer) to move files from their original location to \3DFox
• 3D Fox does not work with MakerBot or other printers using a proprietary communication protocol.

USB CONNECTION
• Android device must have a USB OTG/Host port: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_On-The-Go
• Supported printer USB-to-serial chips:
- CDC ACM (eg Arduino Mega)
- FTDI (eg Melzi, Sanguinololu)
- CH34x
- CP210X, PL2303

WIFI MODULE ESP-01 (ESP8266 chip) succesfully tested:
• Firmware: transparent bridge \'esp-link\' by JeeLabs: http://github.com/jeelabs/esp-link
• Baud rate: 250000.
• Upload speed: 1 MB transferred in 100 s (with Mega2560+Marlin), comparable to USB connection speed.
• Antenna: performances boosted with this improvement: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1665680

BLUETOOTH MODULE
• Bluetooth module JY-MCU connection and configuration: http://reprap.org/mediawiki/index.php?title=Jy-mcu#A_simple_way_to_change_BT_module_settings_-_apparently_using_ftdi_chip.2C_but_not_recommended

FREE VERSION LIMITATIONS:
• Max file size for printing and uploading: 2 MB
• Custom commands: 12 instead of 36
• Decimal digits for XYZ positions and moves: 1 instead of 2
• There are only a few limitations. If you are happy with the app, please consider buying the Pro version to reward our development work. Pro version is available here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fox3d.controller.pro
