Re: OctoPrint Temps stuck on "Off"

I seem to have this figured out. When running many printers at once and controlling them all through a browser, having each printer open in separate tabs on the browser causes big slow-downs in response times of the octoprint interface. If you just have only one or two tabs open then it's fine, but ...

Re: OctoPrint Temps stuck on "Off"

At home I'm running 4 M2s on OctoPrint 1.2.2 on some older Pi2 B boards, using WiFi. At work I don't know if anyone has updated the OctoPrint but it's running 13 M2s on Pi3 B boards and hard wired over ethernet since I couldn't get WiFi working on those. The 4 printer home network is an order of mag...

Re: OctoPrint Temps stuck on "Off"

Yeah, timelapse is turned off. I'm not even sure what that does, I've never used it.

Re: OctoPrint Temps stuck on "Off"

They are wired using ethernet cables and switch hubs. The sluggish response happens on some more than others. When they get stuck in the "off" state I have to reboot them, as the graph never does start refreshing again. I had one of my home printers get stuck in the off state just now after a 20 hou...

Re: OctoPrint Temps stuck on "Off"

At work I have a bunch of PIs networked together over Ethernet and it was working pretty good for a while, but now the communications between the browser and the PIs has become incredibly sluggish. I've had prints take up to 7 minutes to start printing after hitting the print button, even though the...

OctoPrint Temps stuck on "Off"

This is something that has been bugging me with OctoPrint for as long as I can remember-- every once in a while it seems to get stuck in this "off" mode where I can no longer set the extruder and bed temps. The "Actual" temp display just shows "off" instead of the current temp, then any attempt to s...

Re: Large Overhead Filament Spools

It's easier to just set-and-forget a giant spool that can run for two weeks straight though. We got the damper dialed in on the roller bar and are using 10kg spools without issues now.

Large Overhead Filament Spools

I've been trying out some of the larger size filament spools due to the amount of time and wasted filament you save with these. So far I've only found two suppliers that deviate from the standard 1Kg spool: Gizmo Dork with their 5Kg spools and Push Plastic with their giant 10Kg and even 25Kg spools....

Re: Detachable Spool Holder

I'm building new printer cabinets for work which have an overhead filament rack for holding those giant 5Kg spools that Gizmo Dork sells too. We have a big ShopBot and can crank out 20 cabinets in just a few days. I think one of those spools would let us print continually all week without one filame...

Detachable Spool Holder

I'm working on compacting our M2 farm at work and came up with this detachable spool holder that lets you place printers closer to each other by removing the extra space that has to be allowed for sliding the spool on and off. This would also be useful if you were putting your printer in a box that ...
