Your SAAM printer should come pre-configured. If you ever need to set up a new instance of CI Print local software, then use the following guide to configure your printer correctly.
- Access Control- you may set your username and password if you wish, then select “Keep Access Control Enabled.” Otherwise, select “Disable Access Control.” Click “Next.”
- You may configure an online connectivity check if needed. Click “Next.”
Octoprint has a built-in blacklist program which it can use for third-party plugins. You may enable or disable this tool as needed. Click “Next.”
Octoprint’s built-in slicer program is the CuraEngine. If you have pre-configured slicer profiles for Cura, you may import them. If using a different slicer, you can just upload generated GCode later on the main Octoprint page. Click “Next.”
Under “Default Printer Profile,” go to the “Print bed & build volume” heading. For the SAAM/NVPro, set your print volume at Width (X) = 188mm, Depth (Y) = 200mm, Height (Z) = 240mm.
- Under “Default Printer Profile,” go to the “Axes” heading. For the SAAM/NVPro, select the “Invert Control” checkbox for the Z axis.
Under “Default Printer Profile,” go to the “Hotend & extruder” heading. The SAAM uses 0.4mm nozzle diameter and 1 extruder as standard; adjust as needed for your use case.
Click “Next” and then “Finish.”
On the main Octoprint page, select “Connection” from the left-side navigation pane and then click “Connect.” Your printer state should change from Offline to Operational.
