Hello everyone !

I just finished and released the first version of an open source remote monitoring and control system for Repraps/Repstraps/repstrap/3d scanners ,that includes a Web client (using Javascript + Jquery + WebGl) and server (pure Python ):

Current Features : Printing

     [*]upload and print: select the file, upload the file, print it 
      [*]remote monitoring: keep an eye on the print heads movement, the print progress,the temperature of your extruder and buid platform, from wherever you are, even from your cellphone! 
      [*]manual control of reprap via GCodes 
      [*]GCode file support 
      [*]multiple chained prints via print queue


     [*]set and scan : just set the area and resolution of the scan, push the button and voila ! pointcloud! 
      [*]store and download: the scan files are stored on the server side , and can be retrieved at any time 
      [*]multiple viewmodes 
      [*]easy chaining: by default, the machine will be set to home in between scans, so you can chain them without fear


     [*] very few dependencies: server 100% python , can be run with as little as the project’s source code, Python 2.6 and pyserial 
      [*] lightweight: the current version comes at just about 2 MB 
      [*] easy to set up : static file server for the interface as well as reprap control all in one 
      [*] standard: normally , it should not require you to change your reprap’s firmware (except for scanning) 
      [*] easy to use: nothing too fancy , just straight to the point 
      [*]multiplatform: web based, so will work in any browser with javascript enabled (or you can send the commands directly via http from command line if you want to), 3d part requires a browser with webGl support

Looking for feedback 

It works great on my own repstrap , but i am looking for feedback , so if you are interested, please give it a go, my aim is to have it compatible with most open source 3d printer !
