LCD Control M117/M73 with Octoprint
Ive tried to display messages and the print status when printing through octoprint. Nothing seems to work. Am I missing something? Ive tried with bugfix branch and the stable firmware from creality.
I have a 4.2.2 board. Havent updated the LCD firmware since the only file I could find is the DWIN_SET.zip from 07.2020. I bought the printer 12.2020
If such action is not possible, is there an upgraded lcd module i can plug into the printer to have octoprint control it?
Any help is appreciated!
I’m about to tackle the octoprint on my 3 v2 .. from what I can tell you can’t have it display messages from octoprint onto the built in LCD that comes with the printer. I have seen mod’s where they have added a touch screen to the Raspberry PI directly and then installed the plugin for it to display. Look here: https://howchoo.com/ender3/ender-3-octoprint-touchscreen .. this is for the pro but looks like it would work the same if you have a v2
Looks like you can get a small screen that plugs right into the pi for like $50 from amazon (also from link)
