Send GCode snippets to printer via Octoprint integration

Recommended Posts

Posted · Send GCode snippets to printer via Octoprint integration

It would be very nice if we were able to add a button to the monitor page which can send a GCode snippet to the printer.

An example could be a turn on printer button for people with a remote power supply, or maybe turn on some lights.

Also i would be nice if we could change the GCode script in the preheat button, because my printer cannot preheat without being first turned on. If i do then i get thermal runaway :)

    Creator/maintainer of the OctoPrint integration plugin here.

    For now, you are going to have to settle with the button to open the full OctoPrint interface for this functionality.

    In Cura 3.1, there will be functionality for "jogging" the printhead in the print monitor. In future versions I plan to expand on this with extruder temperature control, extrude/retract, and possibly functionality to send custom snippets.
