Having no experience with that machine, I'm not sure about it. From the website
I get the feeling it's using an Arduino-based controller board. In that case,
most printer firmware would run on it. There are several options that support
the delta geometry. I'm not sure if they will support the display though.

However, I'm not sure if you will be satisfied with the options. While they run
fine once they are installed, the installation process can be complex. If you
want something that "just works", the state of 3-D printer software is not
there yet, except for software that is installed by the manufacturer (except
when that doesn't work, of course).

If you don't mind to do some learning in the process, I think you may like the
options. I have written my own firmware (and matching host software). It's
working well for me, but it's not widely tested yet. If you want, I'd be happy
to assist you in trying to get that to work on your machine. Upside to that is
that you get personal support. Downside is that it won't support the display
and it may still break at times (although as I wrote, my experience with it is

If you're interested, please send me a private mail.

I am just learning Linux, I have heard it’s a great system and already seems to better, my computer runs faster with no issues but I having trouble with the app image installs, I keep trying to treat them like iso’s but I don’t know the programs .deb and Linux use.  But again still learning the differences.  So, If you would let me know if any has dabbled in the developer side of making software, and firmware for Any Cubic Predator that I can connect a computer to and use, please and thank you.
