GETTING STARTED

Thank you for your interest in the Prusa Connect beta test! This forum serves as the main communication hub for beta testers and Prusa Research developers.

We’ve been hard at work for many months to get our print farm management software to the current stage. We’re getting close to the finish line, however, there are still things we need to finish and bugs we need to fix. Thank you for joining our beta test - we’re looking forward to your feedback, ideas and suggestions!

Please note that Prusa Connect is currently compatible only with the Original Prusa i3 MK3/S/+ 3D printers and requires a Raspberry Pi Zero W to work. We’re already working on support for regular Raspberry Pi and we’ll publish a guide shortly.

Quick Start Guide

Please check the Prusa Connect & PrusaLink releases thread to download the latest system builds.

Next, prepare your Raspberry Pi Zero W and follow our instructions in these two PDF files. They will take you through the entire process from start to finish. Setting up your Prusa Link will take around 20-30 minutes.

Guide 1: PrusaLink and Prusa Connect setup and configuration

Guide 2: Sending files from PrusaSlicer to PrusaLink

We have also prepared a short guide on how to print a Gcode using PrusaLink only (local solution, useful when you have, e.g., one or two 3D printers.)

Guide 3: Printing a G-Code via PrusaLink

We will soon publish these guides in a password-protected section on our knowledge base.

We recommend avoiding using Prusa Connect / PrusaLink in live production environments as the system is still in a beta stage and some bugs are still present.

Please use the Bugs & Errors forum to report bugs you’ll encounter. It’s a good practice to use the Search function to check whether the issue has already been reported or not.

We hope you’ll find working with Prusa Connect intuitive and useful. We still have some road ahead of us, but we’re excited to share our current progress with you. Thank you for your interest to help us make Prusa Connect better!
