Re: Octoprint Printer Profile

After the print starts, the time required shoots up to 15 hours... Is this normal? Just a side note: Don't forget to make sure your date/time is correct on the Pi. Unless you have an RTC module, it will likely be way, way, way off every time you power it on. And in most cases, the NTP service won't...

Re: Wireless USB Transmitter for MakerGear M2?

I don't know that such a device even exists but I'd recommend a Raspberry Pi 3 and OctoPrint. For $40, you essentially get that functionality plus a whole lot more.

There are things like USB over TCP/IP but you still need a computer on either side of the connection.

Re: How do *you* print a filament drive?

Why did you choose those two? Would not dissolvable support filament work better, such as HIPS or PVA? My first problem is PVA is expensive (4X the cost) and I'd hardly use it. With HIPS, I don't want to mess with Limonene. I do mostly functional parts prints and between PETG and PLA+, I have the b...

Re: How do *you* print a filament drive?

Would be helpful if you would spell out the nature of the shortcomings you're seeing in your printed parts. Here are two quick examples of difficult-to-remove supports (PETG with PLA+ support material): The support for the bearing slot is almost impossible to pull through. bearing-slot2.PNG How Sli...

How do *you* print a filament drive?

The filament drive (single and dual left/right) is the one part I have the most difficulty printing. Since I converted to a dual, I've tried a few and haven't gotten anything I'd call 100% success like the OEM-printed ones that came with the printer. Can someone who has successfully printed one give...

I know insta is joking about the name but it's called a ferrite bead/choke and it snaps on the USB cable.

Re: Printer interface software

[...]All I want to be able to do with the tablet is start prints from the SD card like the lcd screen mods. Is there a small app that can do that? It's been a while for my memory but I'm pretty sure you can start a print from gcode on the SD card using the Quick Start app. I'm not sure if you'd hav...

Re: OctoPrint update 1.2.10 -> 1.3.0 failing

Thanks for the feedback, all. I got around to looking at the log and saw a bunch of dependency issues for the build. In case anyone else has this issue, here's what I did to install the missing deps: ~/oprint/bin/pip install https://github.com/benhoyt/scandir/archive/v1.3.zip ~/oprint/bin/pip instal...

OctoPrint update 1.2.10 -> 1.3.0 failing

Have any OctoPi/OctoPrint users tried to upgrade to 1.3.0 since the release a few days ago? I just tried it directly from the interface and the update fails and breaks the OctoPrint install. I haven't dug into it yet but I was just curious if anyone else has tried yet. Edit: This was on a fresh inst...
