G-code

Standard Marlin compatible G-codes can be found at the RepRap wiki: G-code.
Not all standard G-code are supported by the MP Select Mini.

Extended G-code

See the Extended G-code Table for G-code that is more or less specific to the MP Select Mini & Malyan printers.

Sending G-code

There are a few ways to send G-code commands to the printer. This page will not go into detail on how to use these methods but should be enough to point you in the right direction.

USB

Sending G-code over USB is not the only way to send G-code but is probably the easiest. Many slicer programs have the ability to send G-code to the printer via USB. See your slicer documentation for this feature.

Programs like Printrun (Pronterface) and Repetier-Host are easy to use and don't require much set up. There are precompiled versions of Printrun for Windows that can be used without installation and only require selecting the correct COM port to connect to the printer.

MicroSD Card

G-code can be sent to the printer by saving the commands to a .gcode file. Copy the .gcode onto a microSD card and select the file from the Print menu.

WiFi

It is possible to send G-code to the printer over WiFi but this will not be covered here at this time.
