Multiple printer support?

by Aethelstan

Hi guys, I love running octopi at home on my own printer and it works exactly how I want it to. My question is, if I have two or three printers and I want to print simultaneously, including a web cam feed, can I do that one one Pi3 or should I get one for each printer? It is for a university society.

Thanks :)

Octoprint Inserts a 'Do-Nothing' Layer 2

by BArnold_1

Octoprint 1.3.11 on Octopi 0.16.0

When I go to 'Gcode Viewer' and start scanning through the layers, I see a normal Layer 1 as the bottom layer of my print. Going to Layer 2 shows a blank grid and the following in the information area:

Layer info

Layer number: 2
Layer height (mm): 0.2
GCODE commands: 2
Filament: 20.00mm
Estimated print time: 00:00:00

The actual gcode file shows the expected transition from layer 1 to 2, so it appears Octoprint is creating its own 'Layer 2' for some reason. This doesn't affect my prints, as far as I can see, but it creates a bit of an issue when using the 'Multi Colors' plugin. For instance, when I scan the sliced file in Simplify3D, I need a pause after layer 17 to change color. In Octoprint, it shows the transition as layer 18. I've been able to do what I want, but it seems weird that Octoprint inserts a 'do-nothing' layer.

Custom Controls

by thingoli

Hello, is someone using Octoprint with Custom Controls? I use the App Octopod, with which I would like to switch on my light that hangs on the Raspi. In the Octoprint surface this works great, but in the app I don't have a switch for it. Now I would like to use the custom control that is available in the app. Unfortunately I don't know how the commands have to look like. Can someone help me?

Greetings Oli
