My firmware is too slow to run Octoprint; the prints get filled with blobs. Intensely filled, and they are random, so even back-to-back prints look different.
My control board cannot even keep up with the touchscreen--it stutters if I try to adjust the temperature, etc.
So, until I get a better control board, I'd like to use OctoPrint to monitor the print status--at least, which layer it is on.
My slicer allows me to insert code when a print changes the layer... but I do not know what code Octoprint can utilize. Can it process the data from an M27, or will I have to read the data in the terminal box? Is there another code that will report the Z position or layer number?
