Prusa XL & Octoprint

Hello, I'm interested in ordering an XL, but I'm not sure how octoprint operates with the XL. I really enjoy using octoprint on my MK3 and MINIs and would prefer to keep using it with the XL. Does anyone have any experience with that?

I do not, and I have not seen any reports of it either.  I looked on the Octoprint website and nothing.

I wonder if Prusa did something to push people towards their own solution? I can't imagine why though, it seems the rich community making things for Prusa has helped to build the popularity immensely. Extensibility is always my preference to walled gardens.

I hope that's the case. I know it's the first thing I'm gonna do.

New printers take a while to join the list - Gina or one of the more experienced users has to acquire the printer and test/adopt it. I'm sure it's just a matter of time ... perhaps you will be the one to test it for everyone ...

Cheerio,

RE: Prusa XL & Octoprint

I have honestly transitioned my Octoprint machines over to the Prusa Connect setup . We have about a third of all our machine working on it now and it’s working great . When our XL machines arrive they will be added with Prusa Link as well . I’m sure Octoprint community will definitely have functionality after there’s more XL machines in the wild and they have a chance to work on implementation.

When I get my XL I'm going to try and use Prusa Connect. I haven't seen any info on Octoprint or anything on the Octoanywhere page.

Links for connecting the XL to Prusa Connect

Really interested in this as well, i have my kit on order so looking forward to trying it out. I don't want to use Prusa Connect as i have my other printers setup on Octoprint with webcams and i really like the plugins like Octoeverywhere, also OctoApp on the phone is great.

I already received my XL. Prusa Connect has less functions! I hope they will update it soon! No Control about the printer. REALLY SLOW!!! No folders possible.

Maybe I'm blind but I can't find USB port to connect a Raspi.

RE: Prusa XL & Octoprint

There's a usb-c port on the back that I've used to get Octoprint to connect, I just need to sort out the correct values for the printer profile:

X/Y/Z dims: 360mm

X Coordinates: 0, 360
Y Coordinates: -10?, 360 
Z Coordinates: -1?, 360

X ??? mm/min
Y ??? mm/min
Z ??? mm/min
E ??? mm/min

I finally found the USB-C port on the back.  Boy, did they hide it well!  Do you have to do anything in settings to activate the port, and if so does it deactivate the USB port for the memory stick?  I know the LCD screen won't show print status, but does it still show printer status (temps, etc.?).  Thanks for any additional information you can share.

RE: Prusa XL & Octoprint

When you connected, did you receive a warning message from Octoprint about the lack of thermal protection implemented in the firmware and a link to https://community.octoprint.org/t/octoprint-tells-me-that-my-printers-firmware-lacks-mandatory-safety-features-what-does-this-mean/350?   If so, did you disable the firmware check plug in in Octoprint?

RE:

I just got my XL and Octoprint connected.

I am seeing the warning about thermal runway on the dashboard.  I also noticed that the nozzle temperature is not being reported correctly and causing me to get constantly bombarded with thermal runaway warnings on my phone.
