Review

For this review I will detail my build of the Jaune Arc's Sword Season 4 RWBY. This review is my own and I was offered no compensation for my opinions, which are my own. I was given the file for build but am under no promise of a good review in return. First let’s go over what we need for this build.

Your 3D printer was printing great and now it’s not. 3D printers print great when you first get them and if you don’t properly maintain them, they will fail. In this article I will explain how to maintain your printer to ensure your ability to continue turning out great prints. All 3D printers require some amount of routine maintenance to continue printing.

OctoPi

More printers are being released with Wi-Fi as a feature, but many have printers without Wi-Fi. So, wouldn’t it be nice if you could add Wi-Fi to your printer? Problem: I have three MonoPrice Duplicator i3s in my garage. When I print to them I must place my .gcode file on a mini SD stick and then run it to the garage to print the file. Lets use Octopi
