I’m using the AB Touch software on my Pi and after unlocking SSH I was able to get Simplify3D to upload files directly to the /AstroBoxFiles/Uploads folder whenever I export the gcode. However this has recently stopped working properly (I believe the Uploads directory doesn’t get scanned until you upload something from the GUI so new files don’t appear).
I know it was a workaround and not supported so I’m not asking for help with that, however is there a possibility that something like this could become a feature? Like an API in the software (rather than the cloud) that enables direct transfers from the slicer? It was so nice when it worked, just hit “export”, walk to the printer/AB, touch print, internal, filename and print away! Either that or just monitor the Uploads directory for changes??
Thanks for the awesome software
edit : I just thought of another way this might work, albeit a little trickier - if I share a directory on my Windows box and mount it on the Pi using Samba/CIFS in place of /AstroBoxFiles/Uploads is there any way to make the software pick up new files immediately? Like a forced rescan of the Internal files?
