Software Alert sound when target temps are reached?

Tue Jan 13, 2015 10:54 am

Just started using Simplify3D this week, not disappointed!

I'm still getting used to a few things, but a feature I've missed on any controller software I've tried is an audible alert from the software when my extruder gets up to temp.

I'm sure if something like this were implemented (obviously, not a make or break tweek), people who used it might want to customize, set different tones for each extruder, the bed, etc, and might even want a delay to allow the components to expand (I like to jump right in on my metal simple, but I heard someone say they don't want to start until the extruder has been hot for 5 minutes to allow for any thermal expansion).

Thanks for a great product!

You could do this in the Starting G-Code depending on what type of printer you have. I believe most printers have some G-Code commands that will illicit beeps from the machine.

For instance, for RepRap style machines, the beep command is M300;

For MakerBot style machines, you can actually play tunes, I copied the Indiana out of the end of a G-Code file. You could place this in the Starting G-Code of the Scripts tab after preheating

My machine doesn't have a speaker. I just want Simplify3D to play an MP3 or WAV file on my computer when when a target temp is reached.
