Slice and Dice operational
The tests used .stl files of the gearmotor coupling and the polymer pump taken from the Art of Illusion 3D design specification for the RepRap Thermoplast Extruder Mk2 Thermoplast Extruder.
The .tml file for the gearmotor coupling was about .75 megabytes while the polymer pump's .tml file weighed in at 3.4 megabytes.
The next task is to upgrade Tommelise's Control Panel to read a .tml file and create timed control commands to the 3D printer enabling it to create that object. Since the Control Panel already has a full set of tested commands running the 3D printer this task is not seen to be a major one.
BTW, got stuff in the mail, thanks! :)
