How to connect your 3D Printer to 3DPrinterOS

If you've already installed the 3DPrinterOS Client and connected your 3D Printer, it will appear on the Printers Page automatically
  1. Go to the Printers page
  2. Click Add Printer
  3. Select your 3D Printer's Model from the list
    You can add multiple 3D Printers at once
  4. Click Add Printers & the Waiting for connection list will appear.
  5. You may use different approaches to connect your 3D Printer:
    1. The majority of the 3D printers are connected through the 3DPrinterOS Client – separate software is available for different operating systems
      1. How to install the 3DPrinterOS Client on a Raspberry Pi – read here
      2. Or you can just download and install it on Windows or Ubuntu. We have a release version for Mac OS (Development and Stable client) too, but it could not work for the latest Mac OS version.
      3. If you have Mac or custom hardware with a custom OS – you can use 3DPrinterOS Client ZIP archive
    2. Native integration – just entering the access code from the printer's screen
      1. Dremel 3D40 and 3D45, Kodak Portrait, Loop3D, Hercules HG2, Robo3D R2, C2 and E3.
    3. For Ultimaker 3, S5, S3 and newer models – read here
    4. Network MakerBots (5th Gen) and other Network Printers – read here
  6. Voila! Your 3D Printer has appeared on the Printers page with the Idle status.
