Hello everyone,

I just got finished with a RepRap emulator, it looks similar to some of the other GCode emulators out there except it can have different toolheads (not entirely implemented), different firmwares, and different sources of input (currently GCode files and UNIX sockets are supported). The UNIX sockets can be set up through VirtualBox so you can run a VM with RepRap printing software inside and see the printed part on the host machine.

The entire project is in Python and is GPL2, and uses the bundled TK library (so should be fairly cross platform, I've tested it on Windows and Linux).

I would love any feedback or contributions, especially in firmware as that is a little sparse so far.
