Standalone MK3 settings for OctoPrint


I am using a raspberry pi 3B+ with USB connection and the end goal of running octopi with Octolapse for great time lapse footages.

I started by installing the octoprint and manually configure everything but stumbled when I could not find a single article describing what profile settings to use for the MK3. The bed size is easy, but "hidden" stuff like oversize settings, start/stop/pause/custom GCODEs are not.

So, to my question. Could you please provide an extensive list of the prusa i3 MK3 specific settings you use for octoprint when creating the prusaprint version, so I manually can add them myself to the standard Octprint version?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Markus,

the list of settings for PrusaPrint are on my to-do list and will be published on our GitHub, where PrusaPrint already has its page. However, it will take some time, I will inform you on our forum and social networks.

I'm having some sort of weird hardware problems (I think) with the Prusa i3 MK3 at my makerspace (The Maker Barn in Magnolia, TX).

Once I figure out how to get it printing consistently (I'm using Simplify3D to drive/slice it) I'd be very interested in seeing what comes out of this discussion thread, and I'd be glad to test out configurations when ready.

I *think* I've subscribed to this thread, look forward to seeing the posting(s).
