How to connect Makerverse to a 300x printer?

Is there any tips on how to connect the Makerverse software to a 300x?  I cannot find anything that says HOW to do it.  the 300x is not a default profile after a fresh install.

  • Thanks for submitting a ticket about this! Here is our answer for everyone's reference:

    1. Here are the instructions for connecting to your printer: 
    Go to menu > settings > and enter your wi-fi network.

    Once the printer is connected, you can access it via any webs browser on the same network by going to http://300x.local 

    If you've changed the name of your printer, swap the "300x" for your printer name.

    That should show you the same info that is on the screen and you can 3D print from any device!

    2. I recommend slicing in Cura for printing. Makerverse can run a printer's Gcode, but it cannot create the Gcode from your STL file. With the 300x, you send a Gcode file over wi-fi and the printer will do the rest, no external computer needed during printing!

    Here are the instructions:
    We added the 300x to the list "non-networked" available printers in Ultimaker Cura.

    We do not currently have a profile for other slicers, such as Prusa Slicer. However you can make one with some experimentation! 
    The 300x 3D Printer Machine Settings are:
    Size X: 300mm
    Size Y: 300mm
    Size Z: 300mm
    Gcode: Marlin
    Heated Bed: Yes
    Filament Diameter: 1.75mm
    Nozzle Size: 0.4mm

    The closest to this machine would be the CR-10 or CR-10S. It's possible to begin by selecting that machine in some slicers and it will have these above machine settings!

    Then you will need to adjust the beginning and ending Gcode for the 300x to function properly.

    Here is the starting Gcode to copy paste:

    G28 ;Home G29 ;Auto Level G90 ;Absolute Positioning G92 E0 ;Reset Extruder G1 Z5.0 F3000 ;Move Z Axis up G1 X25 Y295.0 Z0.28 F3000.0 ;Move to extrude G1 X250 Y295.0 Z0.28 F1500.0 E15 ;Draw the first line G1 X25 Y290.0 Z0.28 F3000.0 ;Move to side a little G1 X250 Y290.0 Z0.28 F1500.0 E30 ;Draw the second line G92 E0 ;Reset Extruder
     G1 Z5.0 F3000 ;Move Z Axis up
    Here is the ending Gcode to copy paste:

    M104 S0 M140 S0 ;Retract the filament G92 E1 G1 E-1 F300 G28 X0 Y0 G1 Y300 F3000 ;Move bed forward

    Some other values we suggest changing are:
    Normal Layer Height: 0.16
    Best Layer Height: 0.08
    Print Speed: 50
    Initial Layer Speed: 10
    PLA Retraction Distance: 5mm
    PLA Retraction Speed: 45mm/s

    After you have set the Gcode, you can run a test print and see how it goes! Good luck and if you need any assistance, feel free to submit a ticket and we'll help get you printing!
