Hello @josp !

For this a thing on Prusa printers, it does not mean OctoPrint has to support it.

AFAIK, you can't select the sheets from remote. It only works with the printer LCD menu.

If it would be possible, someone already would have written a plugin.

I think this job is with Prusa to detect the sheet on the bed and set the firmware accordingly.

Thank you for your helpful information.

In order for OctoPrint to select these profiles, a gcode command would need to exist. This needs to be defined in the Prusa firmware. I would suggest that you request a firmware enhancement from Prusa.

There are already "Prusa specific" gcode commands so, IMO, this would not be an unreasonable request.

Thank you for the tip.
I asked them in the comments of the Steel sheet profiles article.

It is possible to select steel sheet profile through the G-code, you can see more about it here: Add M850 code for setting sheet label and offsets by vintagepc · Pull Request #2201 · prusa3d/Prusa-Firmware · GitHub. Note that this G-code is only supported from firmware 3.13.0.
