Map SD as Network Drive

What is the problem?

Hi all, Sorry I am not sure on the lingo.

My only question is there a way to map the SD card on my Pi as a network drive. So I can save Gcode directly from my laptop to the SD without having to upload to Octoprint.
Thank you!

Hello @Nick_Spica !

You should do it via OctoPrint so that OctoPrint gets knowledge of it and can create the meta data.

Depending the Slicer you use, it's just one click to upload the gcode file directly to OctoPrint.

Thank you. I use cura. Is there a way to do it directly in Cura?

There is an OctoPrint connection plugin for Cura, you can add it from the Marketplace:
