I was wondering how WiFi based 3D Printing works since I want to start an open source project and need some information on this. I have done some research, I have now an understanding on how the printer interprets the G-code and how it acts upon the instructions. But what I couldn't find information on is how WiFi based 3D printing works
What is the communication between the slicer (such as Cura) and the board?
How are the commands sent to the printer from the slicer, line by line or the entire G-code?
How do I establish a connection between the slicer and the board?
I am well aware of the already existent Raspberry Pi idea compatible with Octoprint but I am making a much cheaper one
Thanks for any help
