hello,

Topic says it all right? :)

I was reading some articles about wifi enabled SD cards and it seems those cards are more reliable than a few years ago.

Anybody who has experience with these wifi sd cards and an Ultimaker?

Just checking because I've ordered the new macbook pro 15" and it has no SD card slot anymore :(

I know there are adapters available but still, wifi would be better :)

    I've used Toshibas FlashAir Wifi SD cards in all my printers, mapped as WebDAV shares, so it shows up as a drive in Windows - or via the built in (very rudimentary) browser upload page. Love it.

    Works great in all of them, except for my Ultimaker 2+. No chance getting it to work, even tried the competing Transcend WifiSD, same problem, no go. It would require firmware change.

    I stopped using them when I got hooked on Reptier-Server (the non free Octoprint alternative).

    Thanks for the tip, I'll give Reptier-Server a try :)

    Are you using a Raspberry Pi to control you UM2?

    For some reason Repetier-Server fits my personal needs better than OctoPrint. And yes, I am running it on a Raspberry Pi 3. Currently controlling my UM2+ and two other printers at the same time.

    Also got a cheap (less than 45 Euros) Chinese Android tablet sitting next to it so I can start/stop prints right then and there. (I initially planned on buying the Raspberry 7" Touch Display but never got around to it)

    Very happy with the setup now.
