    So ur saying I need the duet rerap firmware integration thing ??

     

    Yes, exactly.

    Unless there exists already a predefined printer definition for the exact printer model that supports this connection method (but I'm not aware of one).

    I think you're talking about the button "Add printer by IP"? I may be wrong, but this function is meant to connect Ultimaker printers only (AFAIK).

    Theoretically, other printers types could be "hooked into" that dialog, but a plugin would need to be installed for that, and AFAIK, the "Duet RepRapFirmware Integration" you mentioned above does not yet support this dialog.

    Then feel free not to use it.

     

    I said plugins can hook in to the dialog you are trying to use. The plugin you downloaded doesn't.

     

    The intended workflow with this plugin is you first add your printer as a "local", non networked printer, and then add the network connection via Extensions -> DuetRRF -> DuetRRF Connections.

    also i did what u said already i added it as a non networked custom printer and it does slice the file and i can save the file to my desktop and i can go into duet web control and manually add the file but thats not what i want to do i want to use the program to directly send the sliced file to the duet web control  through my ethernet connection

    It depends... 🙂

    One thing is: one can choose an emulation type, it's a firmware setting see M555

    This only affects response messages on the serial console AFAIK. Simply choose the same on both ends, and it should be fine.

     

    Reprap firmware is (by default) compatible with "Marlin".

    I think there are only marginal differences in the output that Cura generates for both flavors.
