Many tablets have battery issues using the OTG cable and not being able to charge while printing. Since the smoothieboard has the ethernet, it seems like it would be a good marriage to support printing to smoothie over the network.
That is exactly what I’m attempting to lean myself. I have a wireless N router I plan to dedicate to a new printer I’m building. I’d like to plug to the smoothieboard through the ethernet and then connect the GCodePrintr via wireless. Anyone else done this or something similar? Thanks…TP
I never could get this to work. to control the smoothie over the network, the only thing that works (worth a crap) is Pronterface (which I hate) but since my smoothieboard locks up if you look at the USB cable wrong, I use pronterface to start/stop/monitor my smoothirprints, I just complain about it the whole time.
Thanks Robert…I’ve posted questions here and at Smoothieware.org about being able to connect the network using the ethernet port. A person in the delta community said he runs a smoothie via GCodePrintr but uses the USB connection. He doesn’t think GCP supports the smoothie web interface. I’ve posted a question her if that’s true or not. Thanks…TP.
that might be me too, I’m GRB352.
Yep…that’s your post.
