Repetier Manual Control Mac

Repetier-Server offers you the possibility to manage the 3D printers connected to your computer via an user-friendly web interface. The application monitors all the IP addresses on the network and allows you to remotely control any of the connected 3D printers. I have the 112,500 baud rate, and have enabled the dialout privileges, The odd thing is, repetier says I am connected ( and a slight sound comes from the doodle), but nothing happens at the printer end in terms of manual control or printing a file.


Object Placement

Import one or more 3D models and place, scale, rotate or duplicate them on your virtual bed.

  1. The host says it’s connected, but when I press a manual control it does not do anything. Vicious1 (Ryan) November 23, 2019, 11:14am #6.
  2. I just finished my first MPCNC build and am having trouble with testing it via manual control in Repetier-Host. When I plug my board into the wall and my computer, I have no trouble connecting. However, when I click a manual control option, nothing happens. My baud rate is set to 250000 and I have the latest firmware flashed (I think.) I don’t see any errors in the log, but occasionally.
  3. The Repetier-Host is a simple to use host software, which is be compatible with most firmwares around. You can add and position your STL files on the simulated printbed and slice them all together. For slicing you can use the built-in Slic3r slicer or use the well-known Skeinforge.


Slice your plate with different slicers and optimal settings for perfect results.



Check the result completely, in regions or layer for layer.



Print directly from the host via USB or TCP/IP connection, via SD card or via Repetier-Server.
