This is interesting… I use OctoPi/OctoPrint and for the entire time I used it, I never had a problem. UNTIL… I finally did.
Baffled… I realized that the printer only went crazy if I tried to connect via OctoPrint. If I did tell the software to connect, I didn’t have a problem.
HOWEVER… I’ve been printing lots of face-shields and… enough that I threw the job on the SD card (I never used the SD card to print before). It wasn’t until I read your post that it connected the dots.
BTW… I upgraded from OctoPrint 1.3 to the new 1.4 (finally out of beta). After doing that, I didn’t have the problem anymore. I’m not sure which SD card is in the printer… (e.g. if it’s the original card that came with the printer vs. a blank card.)
But thanks for posting this and…
Hope this helps someone out there.
… yes… it definitely helped me! Thanks again!
