Octoprint

If you "search" in the forum you can find may discussions on Octoprint and UM2 ... e.g. HERE ;)

 

A search on "Octoprint" does not yield discussions in this forum as you claim. There are only a couple of posts where the word "Octoprint" is mentioned, and that is about it.

The post you sent me to is in French! Even though I can read and understand French still fairly well, don't you think, that if I were comfortable participating in a technical discussion in French I would have posted in that forum?

That topic does not address my somewhat general question, but rather an issue a user has with generating the proper gcode in Cura. The user is advised to change a machine setting in Cura to achieve that.

    Oops, it's true, I'm sorry but speaking English, French and Italian I follow all three sections and sometimes I mix things ... :D

    Anyway ... searching on Google give many results ... but the end is still the same :

    You can use "Octoprint" with UM2 but NOT using UltiGCode (... which is not supported by Octoprint). You have to switch Cura to produce Reprap (marlin/sprinter) GCode and you have customize the "Starting" and "Ending" GCode.

    I've been using it for a while on a UM1 (now +ish), with experimental heatbed (and now the kit heatbed) and dual extruders.

    I've set up Octprint witnh the UM2 :) because i'm to lazy to walk 5 meters to my printer...

    how can I help? :)

     

    I don't know if you are being sarcastic or if you have actually done this? If you have done this I do want your help.

    It is not that I am too lazy to put an SD card in the printer. However I would like to be able to monitor my printer from afar, especially when I am printing something that takes many hours. That way I do not have to stay near the printer the whole time.

    Octoprint was written about in the last issue of MAKE magazine, and I found it interesting Additionally, according to what I have read online I can use a webcam and monitor the print, which might be very useful. Besides this will also give me a change to play around a bit with a Raspberry Pi. That little computer has been used by so many people for so many different projects, and this is one project that I would like to try, because I think it might be useful.

    Thanks anon4321,

    That seems exactly the kind of information I was looking for, and could not find.

    I wonder why my search with the search term "Octoprint" did not yield at least similar results. I found practically nothing.

    The strange thing is that your search term "um2 octoprint configuration" in Google yields many results in the Ultimaker forum, but a search in the forum itself yields nothing.

    Unfortunately, it's a well known fact to most people that have been on the forums for some time that the forum search sucks....

    I do not understand this post at all. What stops working? What can you not connect/disconnect? What section flashes? What is Pronterface?

    Its Octoprint that stopped working properly. When I open the browser to see the octoprint interface you can normally see a section in the top left part of the page that show you on what connection and what port to connect. That part wont stay visible and so I cannot connect to my printer with Octoprint anymore.

    Pronterface is another app to connect to your printer but is mostly for PC and Mac. Like with Octoprint you can send commands to the printer, start a print and monitor temperatures.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
