LR3 WIFI (FlashAir Chip)

I am not sure if this is the right place for this topic but wanted to let those know who use the standard touchscreen only. I did have a Laptop with USB connected to board for a while but to much messing around. I have been using the chip only to load into the gcode into the CNC. I was checking my deer cameras a few days ago and realized I had a 32 gig FlashAir chip that did not work for WIFI but did storage. I pulled the chip from the camera and worked it for a couple of days creating a config (on the chip) so the LR3 would become a WIFI hotspot for me to connect to. Now I can make the project on my computer and simply copy the gcode to the chip in the CNC using WIFI. Did not have to make any change to the board I purchased from V1 Eng. The FlashAir chip is not cheap but since I already had one it was worth the time to reconfigure it. The chip is made by Toshiba. I can provide a config that I used as a starting point if you want to try for yourself.



I have experience running flashair cards on my Creator Pros. They are unavailable to purchase anymore (unless you want to fork out $400 on ebay) but I have one to sell atm and will have 3 more sometime later this year as well.

There’s some way cheaper wifi SD card alternatives. Less reliable, can be hit or miss, but maybe enough bang for buck to try out …
