I find it very handy to transfer gcode files via the network. Saves plugging in the microsd card all the time.
I mainly use OctoPi to remotely view my prints as printer is upstairs.
Looks good on laptop and mobile. I do like the mobile version, it works without lots of 'select desktop' version etc.
Well done, thanks for the hard work.
I will be interested to know how you get on with that bed level sensor. It's on my 'wish' list
Looks very much like an Ender 3 with different print head and SD card in much better place. Looks cool with colour mixing. I assume you can't use flexi filament with the bowden system?
Cheers, I will have a look.

That would be great. Probably won't print immediately as only have blue pla at moment But would be good to look at the design and work out what leds etc. I need.

Nice. Did you make the frames, if so any plans, or did you buy them?

Bad Raven that is a great bit of info.
I was just thinking the other day that I could do with one as we have a couple of 'damp' issues and it would be good to see if it's condensation due to cold spots or something worse.
So checking bed temps is a good secondary use ::)
Nice to know the cheapy laser temp 'guns' work reasonably.

Cheers for the advice, it's very helpful.
Might have another play with the glass with higher temps.

Cheers mate. I think I worked out what was wrong although I am not sure.
I connected Cura 3.6.0 to Octoprint and sent the gcode through Cura. So I think that there might be some setting in Cura that I tweeked or needed to tweek.
I have switched back to creality flexi bed and printing same file by uploading gcode via Octoprint web interface and it seems to be going fine with print finishing in 40mins total (originally I was printing 2 of the items at once).
Once I know this print works I will connect Cura to Octopi again and see what I can find in the settings.

Went back to creality flexi bed and relevelled and all is well. So it's an adhesion issue. I will get some isopropyl and clean the glass and give it another go.
I assume I dont need to tweek bed temp for using glass?

So I setup Octoprint on Raspberry Pi 2B+ with the v2 camera.
I tried printing something by using the Octoprint web interface and uploading the gcode via that. Printing seemed OK apart from Cura suggested that the print would take 1hr30min. After just under 4hrs it finished!!!
The layer height in cura was set at 0.2mm but the prints seem much much finer than that and they have a few zits on!
So it appears that Octoprint is somehow making the layers thinner. I don't need Octoprint to slice on the RPi just want to remotely monitor the prints.
So any ideas what I have set wrong on Octoprint or is there a setting on it to just pass the gcode directly to the printer without any changes?
I just like being able to send the gcode to the printer from pc instead of moving sd cards all the time.
