What would I use this controller for?
This controller connects directly to your printer’s mainboard and will allow you to control it without needing to connect to a PC. The controller has a built-in SD card reader that will allow you to access, load and begin printing 3D items. The controller is fully assembled, however, you are required to solder an 18-pin connector onto the printer mainboard as part of the setup. Also, the setup of this controller requires you to print out a cover, in any colour, to protect and be able to fit this controller to your printer. Once installed, your printer can be used at home, at work or on the go without being connected to your computer. Simply load a print file onto a regular SD card and inset it into this controller and begin printing.
