OctoPi and Anycubic I3 Mega settings

by NaloMeliful

When I installed and booted OctoPi on my RPi3B+ it wanted to know which printer I used. It sees/connects to my printer, but I know I must have set something wrong. The bedsize OctoPi thinks I have is smaller than my 210x210x205.

I am a complete newbie to all this, but not to printing from an SSD card or USB from Cura. So if you have any suggestions of where I should look or what I should do, please keep that in mind. I still haven't figured out the SSH thing or my Pi's IP address... O.O

Octoprint settings

by adstott

If I slice in cura and upload to octoprint, do ALL (bed size, temps, layer heights, etc...) of my cura settings carry over for that print? I haven't put my printer settings in octoprint, and I don't plan on slicing in octoprint, so can I just leave all of the default settings in octo and just upload my cura gcode. I just want octo for the remote monitoring and control of my printer.

P.S. What android app does everyone use/like on mobile devices for remote monitoring of prints?

Filament sensor pause settings

by mettauk

I have a Wanhao i3 .2.1 and am running Octoprint on a Raspberry Pi. I have a micro switch filament sensor on GPIO 21
I have added the Octoprint Enclosure Plug In to Octoprint which is where my question fits really.

I can make the plug in pause the print if I fake (filament runs out) - It just stops and waits for the Resume button in Octoprint.

What I want to get it to do is move up 15mm and then pause for filament change, then resume.

the code for filament change can be edited but I cant get it to do anything, It seems to ignore the switch?
Here is the "filament change code, as is.
G91 ;Set Relative Mode
G1 E-5.000000 F500 ;Retract 1mm
G1 Z15 F300 ;move Z up 15mm
G90 ;Set Absolute Mode
G1 X20 Y20 F9000 ;Move to hold position
G91 ;Set Relative Mode
G1 E-40 F500 ;Retract 40mm
M0 ;Idle Hold
G90 ;Set Absolute Mode
G1 F5000 ;Set speed limits
G28 X0 Y0 ;Home X Y
M82 ;Set extruder to Absolute Mode
G92 E0 ;Set Extruder to 0

Will editing this make it work? How do I get this to work??

Writing my own g-code.

by Aethelstan

Hi guys, I am trying to write some g-code to rapidly move my x axis back and forth. I can send individual gcode to my printer via the terminal, such as G0 X125 F7500 followed by G0 X75 F7500 and the printer does exactly what I want. As soon as I put the commands into a g-code file and start it going in octoprint, it just finishes without doing anything. The terminal is showing that Octoprint is canceling the print itself. I'm clearly missing something fundamental, here. Any pointers?
