Connecting new MG3-ID to Simplify3d?

Post by Douglas74 » Mon Feb 05, 2018 8:58 pm

Hello there. Just got my new MG3-ID and did all the testing/set up. I'm using it on wifi, and I can't connect it to Simplify3d on the Windows 10 computer. S3d works fine with my MG2, and but I can't connect it to the new printer. What am I doing wrong?

don't think it can be connected directly via wifi. all you do is save the file on computer, then you click on upload in Octoprint and you upload the file then print it.

It requires shutting down the octoprint session. After it is shutdown simplify will run fine. It looks like this will have to be done every time the power is turned on.
