The printer can either be used via an SD-card, or via Octoprint for some more advanced features.
Cura has a standard profile for the Vyper. Cura on the 3D Printing PC also has this profile.
Copy GCODE file to an SD card and insert the card into the printer.
Note: GCODE files must be placed in the root directory of the SD card.
Leave a name tag on the printer when in use.
Print status is available in the #octoprint Slack channel, along with some basic controls. Try typing “@PrintBot help”.
In Cura there is an extension to insert GCode to pause at a specified height (layer number) in the print (e.g. for inserting embedded nuts or other objects), however, the firmware of Vyper does not support resuming after the pause. As a workaround it is possible to send the
M108 GCode command manually. e.g via the terminal in OctoPrint. (Check the connection to the printer before starting the print, to make sure you can execute the command.)
If printing over the inserted object, it may be a good idea to preheat the object on the print bed before inserting and resuming the print.
