MP 3D Printer WiFi Connect


Connecting to WiFi

Follow the steps below to get your Select Mini connected to your existing 2.4 GHz wireless network.

  1. Disconnect USB cable from the printer
  2. Turn on the MP Select Mini.
  3. Open the MP 3D Printer WiFi Connect App.
  4. Verify the correct SSID is displayed.
  5. Enter wireless network password.
  6. Use the printers dial and LCD to navigate to the “Move” menu.
  7. Press and hold the dial button.
  8. Release the button when the “Smart config started” message is displayed.
  9. Tap the “Connect to WiFi” button and within 10-60 seconds the process should complete.
    1. The printer's LCD will display “Smart config success” when the process is complete.
    2. The device will display “MP Select Mini is now connected to WiFi…”
    3. You will also notice the Select Mini has been assigned an IP Address that is displayed at the top of the printer's display.

Note: If the “Smart config started” message does not stay after releasing the button you can hold the button down through the whole process and the message will disappear once the WiFi is connected.

Trouble connecting?

  • If the correct SSID is not displayed, go to the devices WiFi settings and switch to the appropriate wireless network.
  • WiFi and USB cannot access the printer simultaneously.
  • Disconnect USB cable from the printer if you want to use the WiFi function.
  • WiFi works with 2.4 GHz b/g/n networks only.
  • If you have a 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz network using the same SSID(wireless network name) you may have trouble connecting the printer to your wireless network.
  • For the initial WiFi setup try moving the printer closer to the WiFi router.

Forget Network

  1. Perform the same steps to setup WiFi but use an incorrect password
  2. The process is complete when:
    1. The printer's LCD will display “Smart config success” when the process is complete.
    2. The device will either not show any message and time out or will show a “Mission failed” message after a minute or so.
    3. You will also notice the Select Mini no longer has an IP Address displayed at the top of the printer's display. It should say no connection.
