the hotend fan is sooo loud!!!!

I wasnt sure which fan it was, for all this time I assumed it was coming from the power supply fan. Anytime the printer is switched on, not printing or anything, just on, the little fan on the hotend is RAGING. I tested it by stopping it with my finger and wow, golden silence (well almost). So, is t...

Re: file size limit in OcotPrint

Yes I gave up on that particular file. It was just one I found that I thought would solve fill my needs from thingiverse. Since I couldnt print it I just designed my own from the ground up and for the same exact part more or less my new stl was only 6 mb.

file size limit in OcotPrint

Is there a file size limit in OctoPrint? I am trying to print a part that has an stl of 69mb but I can do anything with it. When i try to slice it the browser freezes and says it ran out of memory. Maybe there is a setting or something I can change to allow larger files?

But I was also thinking I could put a usb switch in there for using mattercontrol for certain prints. As ...

If you don't have an HE280 equipped printer (or at least the fancy probe board), THIS WILL NOT WORK. The calibration code depends on responses generated by the...

Anybody successfully using a usb swtich in their v3? Will it work to be automatic or must it have manual buttons? I found this one I was thinking of trying: https://www.amazon.com/IOGEAR-2-Port-Printer-Sharing-GUB211/dp/B001SEB45M/ref=pd_sim_147_4?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=XWCSHJEZ79AKQX6B...

Cancel print in OctoPrint doesnt cancel target temps

I noticed that when I cancel a print on OctoPrint my target temps stay the same. I cant even manually turn them off. The only way I can get them to turn off is to shut down the server, then turn the printer off and back on. Am I missing anything that would be easier than that?

v3 kit

My new v3 kit is complete and printing its first print via OctoPrint using the only cura profile i could find that was linked to by mhakney on his v3 build thread. I used a plugin called Slicer on OctoPrint to make only minor changes to the profile. Printing a small PLA print but so far so good. Str...

Feeling silly now, but thankful I found the issue. Hopefully this can help others in the future. The issue was crossed wires (literally).

Tower Y gets stuck - continues making noise

I just completed my v3 build from the kit with Rpi. When I first connected to OctoPrint, I hit home button but to my horror while x and z went up until they hit the limit switch and stopped on queue, y on the other hand stopped below the limit switch, about a 1/4 inch or so below the melamine at the...

Re: Raspberry Pi benefits?

I finally got a chance (Thanksgiving and all) to look at Octoprint. Wow it looks awesome. Definitely calms my fears of not being able to use MatterControl exactly how I was used to if I were to upgrade to a v3 with Rpi. Which I plan to.

Re: Raspberry Pi benefits?

ah ha! That all sounds pretty appealing!

Slice using MatterControl then load to the Rpi is different than just printing via MatterControl the usual way? Could you tell me what you mean on that?

Thank you for your help on this!
