Is Connect only for Raise printers?

Postby NerdyBerdy » Fri Sep 22, 2017 11:13 pm

I tried setting it up for my a6-clone on Ubuntu 16.04, but could not get a connection. Repetier will connect and control the printer OK, so I know it works for 16.04 and the printer at least.

Thanks

Yes, only for Raise 3D N series. The connect button menu item at the top is only for local area network connected Raise 3D N series with the touchscreen console.

After you select that, you will then see any Raise 3D N series printers on the local area network

Then when you connect, it shows the Raise3D application and duplicates the exact same screen that is showing on the printer locally.

The serial command console style streaming gcode setup exists only for Raise3D F series (originally sold under the Fusiontech F100 and F100L names). Haven't tested with other printers but this is the way to get to that console.

Thanks, I had tried that but it just sat and looked back at me. :)

OK, Repetier it is then. The printer is 15-feet behind me so connection without getting up 500-times a day is preferred, even if the software to do so is not! :D
