Octoprint and remote control of b2x300

Post by arquiteto » 03 Mar 2020, 10:42

Hi,

I am a lucky b2x300 user!
I am quite happy with this printer.
Nevertheless, I would love to use it or monitor the print remotely.
I use a camera to visualize results, but can't cancel prints.

Does anyone know how to use octoprint or any similar software with this printer?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
You can use Octoprint + Raspberry PI. For that purpose please follow the link: https://octoprint.org/download/

Hi.

That link will only help you to get OctoPrint running. But what about the printer profile data? We need the following data for the printer. Without it, we can't really use all functionality. Could someone from the BEE team please provide the data?

I dont plan on connecting a PC to my printer. I can for an initial set up but need to be able to run it from a raspberryPi. Is it possible to adjust my z axis stop from the octoprint interface for the rev E machines?

Hello NMGMarques:

The only data that need to change according to your images is as follows:
Print bed & build volume
Width(X) 300mm
Height(Z) 300mm

Axes:
X 7200
Y 7200
Z 360
E 4800

Everything else should work as is

Best regards

Hello Linda,

You can use the printer via octoprint after doing the initial setup although the recommended use to get the most of the printer is using via SDcard. The Z position can be changed via Gcode but should be avoided as you need to be next to the printer to see the result of the adjustment.

Best regards
