M3 Status monitoring with Arduino Ethernet

Post by coastcoaster » Mon Aug 19, 2019 10:23 pm

Hello - I was wondering if anyone had a tutorial or some code to share for this task. I have looked here and at the OctoPrint forum but it is all a little mystifying. Basically I am trying to see if an Arduino can check the M3 and see if the M3 is printing or not. If there are other things that can be captured such as the estimated remaining print time that might work as well. I have been trying to figure this out for a while and I can't seem to get started because I have no idea how to get the M3 to talk to the Arduino. Sorry for the new person question.

I do it with mqtt and octoprint. I installed mqtt plugin for octoprint and it sends messages to my broker with then reports them to home assistant
