Toshiba Flashair SD card

Recommended Posts

Posted · Toshiba Flashair SD card

I've been reading other posts from here and other forums about the use of this SD card.

without Hardware or Firmware modification I got the Wi-Fi to boot properly.

I plugged the SD card into the slot and the Wi-Fi does not work. This is because the firmware shuts down the Wi-Fi capability unless you write a file to the SD card. This is where pronterface comes to play. When using the commands

M28 fileName.g ; This will open a file

M29; this will close the file and save it to the SD Card

once I use those commands the Wi-Fi starts booting properly.

You may ask why do I want to have Wi-Fi SD cards? or why am I connecting through USB?

this is because in the Makerspace that I work we want to avoid users manipulating SD cards because most likely the SD card slot will break (this is a space where we have 20+ printers and the traffic is over 100+ people per week) hence SD card Wi-Fi or USB connectivity. I understand the problem with USB printing when the computer decides to shut down, it will kill the print.

In short is has anyone gotten their Toshiba SD card working on their Ultimakers? if so what have you guys done?

I also accepts other ideas to make printing easy for the users. This is the current criteria for what we want

5 printers connected per computer.

we want to avoid users touching the SD cards

we want it to be slice, send file to SD card or USB and print, change printer for the next job to load.

any ideas?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
