Cura OctoPrint Connection plugin

For anyone having issues with the "API key not valid" on Cura 4.1 this worked for me. Add you server instance manually and check the box for "show reverse proxy options". Add in your user name and password used to connect to the OctoPrint server via the web interface and hopefully it should work. That did the trick for me anyway after trying everything else I could think of.

I just noticed that the OctoPrint Connection plugin has recently passed the 100.000 downloads milestone from the Cura Marketplace. It is the first plugin to do so, so that makes me proud.

:cake:

Many thanks for your plugin !

I have 2 printers, and 2 Octoprint servers, only 1 Cura of course ; is there a possibility to choose what printer to print to ?

Hello, and first of all congratulations on the great work @fieldOfView ! I've just discovered the Octoprint connection plugin and I'm having an issue which doesn't seem to be mentionned here yet : I am stuck in the API key checking process. Nothing happens... Any clue on how to fix that ?

The idea is that you add two printers in Cura, and connect each to a different instance of OctoPrint.

Are you sure the IP Address and port (5001) are correct? Normally the port is 5000.
Do you have a reverse proxy in place? Is it password protected? What version of OctoPrint do you use?

Thank you for your quick reply. Actually that makes a lot of sense, I never thought to do it like this :wink:

So I could just select what printer, slice, and send to the correct octoprint ?
