Print Over Network

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am about to print a large file which takes 4 days to print. I am about to "Print over network" and let it print over the weekend. I am just worried whether the printer would stop the job if the wifi connection gets lost half-way through. Is it something to be worried about?

Thanks

Himal

I don't thinks so - I think it copies it to the local "hard drive". Actually flash memory.

If it does fail keep the bed warm so the part doesn't come off and it's possible to continue a failed print by editing the gcode file and basically removing the portion up to where you want to continue (but leaving some of the initial homing/priming part).

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
