Hello, does anybody know how to use the sd card slot on the back of the Lcd panel of the M3D Quad Crane using a Duet 2 Maestro Board. I dont want to unplug the microsd card all the time and save the gcode in the special gcode folder. I put some gcodes on a normal sd card and plugged it into the back but i couldn’t access it over the menu. Does somebody know how to do that. Thanks
See https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Duet_2_Maestro_12864_display_menu_system. This is the menu file I use to print files from the second SD card:
text R0 C0 F0 T"Select card 1 print file " button T"Back" A"return" image R11 C0 L"hline.img" files R15 N4 I"1:/" A"M32 #0|return|return"
The parameter I"1:/" of the files command tells it to start in the root directory of the second SD card.
Any reason that you’re not connecting over Ethernet to the printer? You can get Ethernet to WiFi adapters if running cable to the printer is an issue, eg IOGEAR Ethernet-2-WiFi Universal Wireless Adapter, https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B018YPWORE/
