Duet Wifi - how to print from hotel?



  • Argh. I'm on a business trip so brought my h-bot to do some printing while i'm away during the day. I expected the wifi to require a browser login which it does so brought a USB cable.

    However, my hope was to print from the SD card and I just realized I don't have my SD-MicroSD adapter card with me so that's not an option. So, I'm back to printing through USB. I have only used Pronterface for occasional connecting/testing/initial setup and on my old printer used some old program a couple of times before switching to SD card only on it.

    So, what should I use? Pronterface? I use Slic3r for slicing but have Ideamaker and Cura 2.7 installed. I already created my .gcode file, just need to send it to the printer.

    Argh, I feel like a noob again.



  • Put the SD card in your phone. 😄



  • Ooh, I hadn't even thought about that since I haven't had an SD card slot in forever but do with my Moto G5 Plus. Now, to find something small enough to get the slot open.

    another alternative is set your phone to be a hotspot, then connect the printer to your phone on wifi.



  • Or just use pronterface it does work.
