I have a Mini and have been able to get Cura to produce some decent prints, but I don’t like it to be tethered to my laptop. So I bought a Raspberry Pi 2.
I downloaded Octopi 0.12 from http://octoprint.org/download/
It has OctoPrint 1.2.10 and CuraEngine 15.04
I configured the network settings and I can see it from my laptop. I was able to drag a file over and it appeared to have worked correctly.
I have not connected it to my Mini yet as I want to be sure it doesn’t cause something to not work correctly and wreck the bed or worse.
I’m not a software guy, but I should be able to figure this out. However, I can’t figure out how to get my Cura profiles to come across, or machine settings.
I used CoParaTech’s settings I found here: https://forum.lulzbot.com/t/octoprint-lulzbot-mini-printer-profile/3136/1
How do I get my Cura .ini profiles over to the Raspberry Pi 2? I found I can go to OctoPrint Settings, and under the CuraEngine (<=15.04) there is a button named “Import Profile…”. I can get the file across, but I think it won’t work because my laptop version of Cura is 17.10.
Do I need to download an older version of Cura in order to use my settings I have refined in Cura 17.10? Or is there another way to do this? I didn’t make a lot of changes to the settings, but I did change enough things I don’t want to start over if I don’t have to.
Do the Start and End gcodes come across with the ini file?
Thanks for any help!
