at this point it is necessary to configure the printer.
WARNING: Use of the settings shown is at your own risk. We assume no responsibility if these settings cause malfunctions or breakage of the printer.
At the first access to OctoPrint, the basic parameters for managing the printer are requested. In our case, we connect the Orange PI PC to an Anet A8 3d printer via the USB port. At the first access to the address
a configuration mask is shown
pressing next we access the next screen where to define the user who manages the printer with his password
We press Keep Access Control; the next step is the control of the Internet connection in which we disable the Connectivity Check
We have to import our cura profile for Anet A8 and set the path to the executable CuraEngine, compiled in the previous article
The imported profile must be generated by Cura 15.04.x or older. Below is the link to the various versions of the Cura software
We can now define the parameters of the printer, in our case Anet A8
We set the bed size and print volume
The speed of movement using the control panel is defined in the next step; we set up conservative parameters
Finally, we set the extruder parameters
Restart OctoPrint: echo password | sudo -S systemctl restart octoprint
Restart system: echo password | sudo -S reboot
Shutdown system: echo password | sudo -S poweroff
where in the password you must enter the password to run the root commands on Debian.
The folder in which Octoprint has been installed is inserted for the software update
We do not insert anything for the webcam
Finally, the configuration is completed with the Finish button.
