Our Ultimaker needed a bit of maintenance. While he was at it, daned33 added heated bed and a Raspberry Pi with RasPoE running OctoPrint. This means that instead of moving gcode to Ultimaker using SD card, you upload it to ultimaker.local from Hacklab internal network.
Now that you can print from any machine you probably want to setup Cura on your machine. The type of Ultimaker is “Ultimaker Original” with “Extruder drive update” and “Heated bed (self built)”.
I have printed just fine without tweaking print settings, but you can select “Switch full settings” from “Expert” menu and change “Platform adhesion type” to “Brim” and “Bed temperature” to “80”.
EDIT: I realized I left out actual printing instructions.
After you have used Cura to generate gcode, you go to OctoPrint page on ultimaker.local. Login as hacklab user. Then you can upload your code to printer and print it by clicking print icon. You can follow printing on webcam by selecting “control” pane.
Yosemite replaced mDNSresponder with discoverd in OS X. In practice this means that .local domains don’t work as well as they used to. So if you cannot connect ultimaker.local check that
- You are in correct wlan (Hacklab or Hacklab-FAST)
- Try restarting discoverd by finding its pid with ps ax | grep discoverd and then sudo kill pid.
