Any 3D printer that runs G-Code or X3G and has a direct USB connection*
Please see our article about compatibility: Is MatterControl Compatible with my printer?
Most any 3D printer that runs G-code or X3G will work with MatterControl Touch. The models listed above simply have presets already added to MatterControl Touch.
More 3D printer models are coming soon!
*Some newer printers run G-Code or X3G but do not allow for direct USB connection, and instead rely on hardware which uses wifi or other methods of transferring G-Code.
Frequently Asked Questions
My 3D Printer model isn’t listed as supported, will it still work?
As a general rule any printer that runs “.gcode” will work, including custom, home-built printers.
Do I need to be connected to the internet or a wifi network for this to work?
No. However, some features, such as web file transfers and auto-updates, do require a wireless internet connection.
How do I add printable models to my MatterControl Touch?
There are several ways to find printable files - you can download files directly to the Touch from the web, transfer files via SD Card or transfer files wirelessly from your computer via MatterControl Desktop.
Can I get the application separately and run it on a standard Android tablet?
Nope. MatterControl Touch tablets have been modified at the hardware and firmware level in order to act as a dedicated computing device connected over USB. It it important to note that these devices do not come with a battery and are not meant to work separately from the 3D printer itself.
