Flashair sd card for ulticontroller

Recommended Posts

Hi,

a while ago someone asked at the google group if anyone had tried to use the toshiba flashair sd card (a sd card that is able to read/write data via wifi) with the ulticontroller so gcode could be transfered to the sd card via wifi.

One reason that was mentioned why this might not work was that the ulticontroller was meant not to work with SDHC cards and the flashair is an SDHC card. I just bought an SDHC card (4GB) and could read fine. So my question is, has anyone used/tried a Flashair sd card with the Ultimaker?

I am not sure if the card is more or less officially released, I could only find a single source online: http://www.japantrendshop.com/toshiba-flashair-wireless-sdhc-memory-card-p-1219.html - and it is expensive.

Hello!

The question here is : Does it have a chance to work or not? Availability is another topic...

It's interesting to determine if it works with an ulticontroller...

For the price, it should be left to greengecko to figure out if he wants to pay for it or not....

DO NOT USE SDHC CARDS! They might appear to work fine, but there is a bug in the software that could cause your prints to restart half way.

Well if you really want to try it, try the flu card and not the toshiba flashair. I was the one that mentioned it on the google groups.. I dont see any software from toshbia that lets you upload a file to the Sd card.. I tried contacting their support, but didnt get any response... However for the flu card, they claim there is a upload functionality on the web page that shows up when you access the flu card using your browser....

Let us know the results if you try it out..

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
