  1. Well, I tried this and didn't even get that far. Pressing CONNECT in Octoprint caused the errors. I will try it again in "safe mode" when I get a chance. However, I would think it's Octoprint and have listed the issue on their website.
  2. I had a problem with my Creality 10 5s. Creality support had me re-seat the plugs for the bed and the nozzle. This seemed to help. Interestingly Octoprint used to throw a temperature limit error. Now using it just says "KILLED" on the screen of the device. However, the USB printing seems to work. I included the image that they sent me, showing what to re-seat. Note that they also sent me firmware, but I don't think it's good for me to put firmware in a forum because I don't want it to mess up anyone's machine. i don't know that the firmware helped anyway.
  3. Note that the new Octoprint fixed the above issue. However, I have a NEW issue. When using the new PLUGIN and the PI, I get a KILLED message on the screen of the Creality and a HALTED message from Cura. If I print via USB I dont' get this. Any ideas? If you tell me where to get "logs" or anything that can help, I would be happy to do so.
  4. There was no "cancel". It is as if it "queue'd" the job or lost connection. I had to use the web version to cancel the print. Note that on my Creality 10 5s, it had me download a new version of the plugin and it now monitors and allows me to Abort Print. The real victory here is that I can actually PRINT on this device. Upgrading to Cura 4.2.1 has cost me considerable time troubleshooting (oops). I thought it was the PI, and rebuilt it, cleared Cura completely and reinstalled EVERYTHING (including plugins) until I found your comment about the new fix for 4.2.1. By the way... I LOVE the plugin, etc. Nice work! I think my problem was changing "too many things" at a time (new printer, new Cura, new PI, etc). I will test this with my Ender 3 and that PI to see if it still works there, but I want to finish my first actual print job on the 10 first (I know I can start another Cura... but with my luck this week, I'll wait!) Thanks for the response and great coding efforts. (btw... I looked a your website..... I think I might have something you'll like.... We can talk offline if you like)
  5. I have had more difficulty with 4.2 (and 4.2.1) than previous versions. The profile import issue (which is now fixed), the Octoprint issue, camera issues, and even some strangeness with the Ender 3. What used to print in an hour now takes 3. Not sure what changed. And it tried to print right off the BED! I am fairly new to 3D Printing, so I don't have the specifics as to WHY this happened (I am trying to figure that out), but it's been quite the challenge. You've done such a good job with releases that for the FIRST TIME I let it uninstall all my old versions and clean out the settings (Boy, was that a mistake). Now I cannot get a print and need to make some parts for my startup business. It seems the build plate settings for Ender 3 is smaller than reality (I read online that it's to give room for clips to hold on glass plates like I have, etc). However, I actually need the full build plate. In addition, I like the fact that it extrudes the "line" at the left edge to prime the filament, but that actually messes up my print that uses that area, How to I turn off that priming so I don't have this issue? Finally, I have a brand new 10 5s, and it's been a real problem with this version. It was working with earlier versions, but it's gone a bit crazy to the point that Creality sent me a firmware update. I "get" that I may have "changed too many things" at once with a new printer, new Octoprint, and new version of Cura. However, the days I have spent trying to rebuild the raspberry pi, flash firmware, reinstall Cura and all the plugins, etc, etc is getting crazy. I am hopeful I can turn off the primer line, get the full build plate back, fix the slower printing, etc. Any ideas where to start? Love the product,. but am a bit loco right now... Please advise.
  6. I have the 4.2.1 and the latest Octoprint plugin. However, when I print, it no longer allows me to cancel a job from the MONITOR screen like it used to. Please advise!
