Aspects of the present disclosure are generally directed to a custom three-dimensional (3D) printer system that allows for the offloading of timing sensitive operations for performance by a microcontroller. In particular, the present disclosure is directed to a 3D printer system that can include multiple classes of processors that are used to perform operations associated with three-dimensional (3D) printing, thereby showcasing a heterogeneous computing system which uses two classes of processor to collaborate to solve a complex problem. In particular, the 3D printer system can facilitate the process of providing 3D printer instructions to a 3D printer.
