Plug-ins are a great way to add functionality to your Robo C2 and Robo R2. There a several plugins that make the entire experience of using your 3d printer easy and accessible. You can manage all of your plug-ins from the web dashboard by going to the ‘settings’ button in the top right of the main interface. A ‘settings’ pop up window will show up, where you can locate the ‘plugin manager’ on the left hand menu about half way down. There are many plugins installed on your printer, but here are explained a few essential ones that are made to make the experience better;
EEPROM Marlin Editor Plugin
- The EEPROM Marlin Editor Plugin allows the user to pull the EEprom setting directly through the web dashboard. This plugin also directly talks to the Robo C2 and Robo R2 LCD screen and translates the information quickly and accurately.
- The filament sensor plugin has been designed to take an input from a sensor located in the filament bracket, and output that signal to the on-board computer. If it realizes there is no filament loaded in the filament bracket, it will pause the print and show a pop-up on the screen to let you know to add more filament before proceeding.
- The Lani plugin enables Robo C2 and Robo R2 to be remote monitored with admin access through the Lani platform www.lanilabs.com
Mainboard Connection Plugin
- This connection plugin is built to maintain a connection from the on-board computer to the main board that drives the hardware on the printer.
- This is a theme that has been created specifically for Robo 3d printers. It is a more unique experience, and has been built to layout the web dashboard so it is easier to access and view.
- RoboLCD is the plugin that lets the on-board computer run the front facing LCD screen on the Robo C2 and Robo R2.
