New to Octoprint. I cannot get files to go to the printer.
What I have done. I have a Zaribo/ PRUSA printer. I am connected to my Raspberry Pi 3+B via LAN Ethernet cable. I have set my Static IP address and MAC address. I have not figured out Cura yet. May use Simplify3D but trying to solve one problem at a time. When I slice with PRUSASLICER I can send the file to the box on the lower left side. When I hit “Connect” nothing happens and it times out. If I hit “Print” the printer comes on but just times out. The file never loads and nothing else happens. I was told I have to save the file to my SD card in order to print. Others says no. Printers I have used at the library just slice with KISS and send the file to the printer using Pronto. I thought Octoprint might do the same. Once I get so I can print, I will tackle setting up the web camera and time lapse and other advanced features one at a time. I wish the was a complete start to finish book, class or video. It is very confusing getting different suggestions from different people on FB. I figured I would go straight to the source. Didn’t know if I needed Putty or VNC viewer.
Running Windows 10 64bit.
Thanks for any help.
