To use it locally you need to be able to view the desktop. sudo raspi-config to pull up the config menu and enable boot to desktop. If there is no browser installed already you'll need to install one. sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install epiphany-browser Open the browser and navigate to http://localhost/ I recommend configuring access control when it ...

This is a case of Atwood's Law. Remember that TinkerCAD runs entirely in your web browser. If your Raspberri Pi can browse the web, you can do basic 3D modeling. Similarly, there is an online slicer available at cnc-apps.com — probably others, too. If you can browse the web, you can slice an STL to create gcode suitable for most printers. It's free to use (...

The answer is "yes", but it depends on what hardware you have, what operating system you are using, and what software you want (or need) to use. I have a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB of memory, and I am running a 32-bit version of Raspberry Pi OS. I have been able to install the following software from the Raspberry Pi OS repositories, but not ...

There's a new timelapse plugin called octolapse that may help. One of the things I noticed with the default timelapses is that lots of things change from image to image, which results in HUGE amounts of mpeg artifacts as it has to constantly redraw large parts of the screen. With octolapse and it's stabilized images the change from image to image is very ...

That bitrate is pretty low, which might explain the blockiness (is that a word?). From YouTube's upload guidelines, you are encoding at the minimum recommended bitrate for standard 720P video. Maybe you should boost to 7500K (7.5 Mbps) and see if that helps. Also, it appears that Octopi is merely calling ffmpeg locally and returning the video. The encoding ...

No, when you run the print jobs from a Raspberry Pi, e.g. using the OctoPrint print server, you do not need the display of the printer as you can control the printer from the Pi screen or from a browser of any other device. Do note that not all functionality of the LCD controller is built-in in those printer servers, but you normally have a terminal to ...

You could mount your google drive using gdrivefs on your pi following this tutorial: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=109587 However, I have to ask: why send the file to the internet? Is your printer/pi on a separate network than your desktop where you are slicing? If they're on the same network, you'd be better off setting up a samba ...

The program is pinging that address to check the internet connection to "prevent resource intensive operations if it's already clear that they won't succeed anyhow". It checks for connectivity, if it has it then it will check for update otherwise it won't check for an update.

A very dumb, simple way to send GCODE to your printer from the terminal can be achieved with: echo "gcode here" > /dev/ttyS0 /dev/ttyS0 can vary, It may be /dev/ttyACM0, /dev/ttyUSB0, or any similar with a different number. You can figure out which path is correct for your printer with the command ls /dev/tty* and comparing the results with your ...

If you followed the video verbatim then the pins file will be wrong, because he's changing the pins based on an MKS Gen 1.4 and not the SKR 1.3. All pins on the SKR will look similar to P2_04, which is the pin for the 2nd hotend terminal.

The printer controller board (the controller that came with the printer) needs to have the basics for being controlled by Klipper, hence the flashing, you should select the MCU of the 3D printer, that is not your Raspberry PI. Usually it is a Atmega AVR or a 32-bit controller board. It appears the Anycubic Vyper 3D is using a 32-bit Cortex-M3 MCU, but please ...

I would not recommend changing Arduino powering. You can either do as you say and power Arduino by giving it regulated 5V to Vin, but then the ATMEGA2560 still will be powered through the 5V voltage regulator. The voltage regulator (NCP1117ST50T3G) needs to be supplied with 6.5V to give out regulated 5V. So you will be powering the Arduino with some 4V, ...

The regular version of Cura has system requirements that the Raspberry Pi cannot meet, including the GPU required to run it. However, it looks like you can try an experimental version of Cura here.

If you're using the term "supports" to mean the extra material that the 3D printer needs to allow material to be deposited in "mid-air," your slicer will have a setting that permits this. Knowing which slicer is going to be used would enable someone to advise you directly of the location of the settings. If you are going to be using a 3D ...

I got the same problem. Auto-detect baud rate was not working too. So I manually tried every baud-rate and finally found one working, for me it was 115200. Good luck!

Is it the Raspberry Pi that locks up, or just the webpage? If the whole thing becomes unresponsive I would consider reviewing your overclocking settings. If you've set one of the higher overclocking values in the config script, this can often lead to random lockups. If you don't see the config script every time you boot the Pi, you can access it by typing ...
