Obico G-Code File Management Revamped!

ยท 4 min read

We have redesigned the G-Code file management system to include some exciting new features such as folders, a detailed view and more! You'll probably be able to find all of the new features by opening the web or mobile app for yourself, or you can continue reading to learn about everything you can do with the new G-Code flow!


Make sure you update the Obico for OctoPrint plugin to version 2.3.0 to enable the new G-Code features

Create Foldersโ€‹

You can now create folders! Create GCODE folders based on materials, projects you are working on or for specific printers!

Mobile Appโ€‹

Folders can be created in multiple ways:

Create a folder from the G-Code screen:โ€‹

  • Click the vertical menu in the top right of the screen.
  • Click Create Folder
  • Name the folder

You can move G-Code files by clicking the horizontal menu (three dots) next to any file, clicking move, and choosing where you want to move the file.

Create a new folder directly from the printer screen:โ€‹

  • From the printer screen, click Start Print
  • Select the vertical menu on the top right
  • Name the folder

Web Appโ€‹

Create folders in the web app from the G-Codes page or from the printer page.

  • In the web app, you'll find a folder icon with a plus in it on the upper right of the page. Click it to create a new folder.
  • Similarly, you can create a new folder from the printer page by clicking "start print"

Detailed GCODE Viewโ€‹

Get a detailed view of each G-Code file by clicking on the file in the web app or mobile app. You'll get information including:

Basic Details

  • When the file was uploaded
  • The file size
  • How many times the file has been printed and whether it succeeded or not

Print History showing

  • Printer the file was printed on
  • File name
  • Time the print ended

Mobile Appโ€‹

Web Appโ€‹

Starting a print hasn't changed, but we have added the detailed view, so when you start a print, you'll see all the information you may need about the file before starting the print. Select individual files in the mobile or web app to open the detailed view.
