Using a BBB as a server to operate a 3D printer using Repet

by biohm on Sat Mar 26, 2016 8:08 pm

Hello Adafruit,

I'm trying to access a 3D printer via ethernet using Repetier Server loaded onto a Beaglebone Black (from Adafruit: Element 14 BeagleBone Black Rev C - 4GB - Pre-installed Debian (Element14 Version) [ID:1996]). I'm a newbie, wondering it I might get some tips.

Many thanks

Hi Drew,

A much belated thanks for the response. Any chance someone may have a solution to this issue? Project has been on hold for quite a while. Ocotoprint has not been a good option...

Regards,
D

Is there a specific reason that OctoPrint doesn't work well for you?

Here's the Adafruit tutorial for it: OctoPrint - Open Source Host Software

Alternatively, there is a simple 3d print server that you could try called Printrun. There is also BotQueue.

Hi Drew,

Thanks so much for getting back.

I have a working 3D printer (which I love) that uses Repetier-Server. Trying to DIY a second printer and would like to master the same software interface before switching to something new.

Regards,
D
