I am interesting in connecting my RepRap printer to ideaMaker using the same Wi-Fi protocol they use for their Raise3D printers.

Raise3D Wi-Fi protocol

I am sure I could emulate it using a Raspberry Pi if I knew the format of the protocol (I suspect it is pretty simple).

  1. Is the protocol documented anywhere?
  2. Is there open source for something that uses the protocol?
  3. Has anyone that has a Raise3D printer looked at the packets it uses? I suspect the protocol is just G-code in a wrapper.

    $\begingroup$ Why isn't 3) acceptable? what rule is it breaking? There is nothing illegal about it? $\endgroup$ – markshancock Sep 7 '17 at 14:27
  • $\begingroup$ It's not a question. It's a request. Your (entire) question reads as if you are trying to start a discussion on reverse-engineering the Raise3D protocol. This isn't a discussion board, and the Q&A format (with a single question followed by a set of answers) isn't the right place for the back-and-forth discussion that would inevitably be necessary for this reverse engineering. I guess the answer to your question will ultimately be "no, it's a proprietary protocol and nobody knows how it works" and I don't think we can/should go further than that on this site. $\endgroup$ – Tom van der Zanden Sep 8 '17 at 6:42

    $\begingroup$ @TomvanderZanden I modified the question to remove reverse engineering request $\endgroup$ – markshancock Sep 8 '17 at 17:25
  • $\begingroup$ If this is 3D printing related i guess it should stay here . Why idea maker ? why not use something like Octopi ? Is it just for ease of use ? $\endgroup$ – Axel Fernandes Jun 29 '18 at 8:50

OK, I have found the first piece of this puzzle. "The Raise3D printers listen on TCP port 31625 for remote control from ideaMaker."
