Sir, Is that possible to code a 3d printer using MATLAB having raspberry pi as micro-controller? If yes, please brief me regarding that; also tell about conversion of STEP or STL file to axis points in printer
With Regards, Rajbir Singh

Hi Rajbir, here's a paper that explains a workflow using MATLAB and Simulink (and, optionally, Simscape Multibody) for designing and controlling a 3D printer. This other MATLAB Answer points to tutorials on how to get your MATLAB/Simulink algorithms to run stand-alone on a Raspberry Pi.

Gcode is used for cnc machines that do not interpret stl files, since matlab would interpret stl files and would also control the movement the middle step of converting into gcode is not really necessary
