Printer firmware written in D for a 32bit microcontroller.

I've actually started to implement a GCode processor in D a while ago, because I was unsatisfied with the open source firmwares that exist. It's more tailored towards CNC routers, but since those are pretty similar that shouldn't be a big problem. The bad news is that I don't have time to work on it anymore and it was still at a relatively early stage.

D for programming + Vibe for web/mobile interface + Mir for math would be a win for a 3d printer firmware. Using templates and component programming should fit perfectly a generic-composable firmware for printers. (check delta vs cartesian vs corexy + different stepper drivers + different motors + different boards + ...)
