Print from SD without any LCD controller?
May 25, 2024 10:40PM
I'm designing a printer that won't have any LCD controller. Is there a way I can just put in an SD card, and press a button, and it starts printing?

It's OK if there has to be only a single file on the SD card or something. Even if it only works with a static filename.

It would be nice to assign a pin to a "start" button and have the firmware read it and start printing. Bit if I have to send a Gcode to have it start printing, I guess I can use an Arduino just to read the button and sent the gcode over serial.

Could you at least try to look around the firmware and google before asking questions?

Auto start [marlinfw.org]

Or you must have a button.
