I’d like to setup multiple cameras, how?

I have an INVALID status for Fluidd, Moonraker or Klipper on the Update panel

  • Updates can sometimes fail and cause this error. Your first option is to try Fluidd now provides a recovery option.

    If that fails, please reach out in Discord

How do I turn on my camera?

  • Fluiddpi ships with mjpgstreamer built in. Plug in your camera, navigate to the UI settings page, and enable the webcam.

My camera is delayed, or slow

  • Here’s a couple of suggestions;
    • Some users have reported that their webcams were problematic when connected to the Pi4’s USB2.0 ports. Try plugging your webcam into the USB3.0 port.

    • Because mjpg streams static images, this can saturate your wifi. Try reducing the fps and resolution of your images. See the /boot/fluiddpi.txt folder on your Pi for more information on how to do this. You can also try connecting to wired ethernet.

Klipper updated and now my printer has an error

  • Klipper likely has configuration changes. Please see here for a list of recent changes.

The host reboot / shutdown commands don’t work

  • Try jumping into ssh and running the following;

    ./moonraker/scripts/sudo-fix.sh
    

My WiFi keeps dropping, is there anything I can do?

  • Depending on your network configuration, sometimes the low power mode of the Pi’s network adapter can cause issues. You can try fixing this by editing the /etc/rc.local file and adding the following to the bottom;

    iwconfig wlan0 power off
    

    Then rebooting.

Why can’t I see a total layer count in Fluidd?
