Hi All

I just setup my new Mk3 and want to use octoprint with it. I tried to use the prusaprint from here https://www.prusa3d.com/download-prusaprint

But the image says its corrupted, i have downloaded it a few times and tried a few different ways to install it too my SD card (followed youtube tutorials) but have not go it to work.

So then i gave straight octoprint working ( i used it with my old anet A6) setup a profile for it but it was not right, im banged a bit. 

i see on the net there are a few conflicting profile settings around. 

 

Can someone post up the official profile settings for the Mk3s to use with octoprint, also whats going on with the prusaprint image?

 

Thanks

 

Steven

Do you mean a profile for slicing via the Cura plugin in Octoprint? If so, can't help.

If you're just trying to use Octoprint as a general print server, not sure what you mean. I use an generic Octoprint setup I originally built for my Lulzbot, and it works fine. There's nothing specific to the printer in an Octoprint "profile" other than the print volume dimensions, which you can find in the manual that came with the printer, googling, on Prusa's site, etc.

Do your downloads from octoprint.org.

Prusaprint is really to support the Pi Zero W using GPIO. I don't recommend any part of that.

Pi 3B using USB is the trouble-free way.

Also: PrusaPrint is an image file. It gets written to your Pi micro SD. Use an image writer.

Definitely recommend downloading OctoPi from the Octoprint site and don't use the Prusa version.

Noob question. Are you sure about the axes speeds, the only number I see in the spec is 200+ mm/s. I assume the /min was a typo.

There's a nice summary from Gina, the Octoprint developer, here which includes a link to the relevant Prusa configuration file from PrusaPrint which can be found here.
