gMax 1.0 - Cut out a middle-man and use the SD card

Postby Kurt » Sat Jul 23, 2016 11:12 am

In my experience, with the combination of all the things that can go wrong with a print, adding in pronterface crashes or glitchy interfaces through com ports just multiplies the chance of waking up at 8am all :(

Do yourself a favour and use the SD card. I used to love controlling things from my PC; pausing mid print and trying to repair things if they are going south. I remember some late nights manually modifying gcode files to start the print "one layer down", sheesh.

Sounds powerful? Well I only had to do that when pronterface crashes.

Take out a middle-man, you wont regret it :)

Also makes it easier to print in the man cave as well, with fumes and whatnot.
