3D printer control

Hi There, I'm the happy owner of an Ultimaker v1 3D printer. For my exhibition I would like to be able to push some G-Code directly to the 3d printer arduino from processing. Despite my (long) search for bits of code, I couldn't find anything. Does anybody have an idea, link piece of code that could help?

In details what I wanna do is:

  1. capture an image via camera
  2. make a canny edge detection then "vectorize" the lines
  3. translate the 2D vectors into Gcode with 1 or 2 layers height
  4. communicate with Arduino from Ultimaker to launch the print

Thanks a lot for any help!
