This is an old revision of the document!


Connecting to WiFi

Link to firmware, Malyan Link (Windows PC), Malyan 3D Craft (Android): http://firmware.mpselectmini.com

NOTES: WiFi and USB cannot access simultaneously. Please disconnect USB from printer if you want to use WiFi function. WiFi seems to only work with 2.4 GHz networks. For initial WiFi setup try moving the printer closer to the WiFi router.

Android - 3D Craft

  1. Download the .apk file 3dcraft from http://firmware.mpselectmini.com located in the folders “Software - Android & Windows Apps” then “Android App - Malyan 3D Craft”
  2. Update to latest UI/LCD firmware
  3. Disconnect USB cable
  4. Press and holding center button on “Move” menu will enter config status. Release button when smart config dialog show. If the smart config message does not stay after releasing the button you should be able to hold the button down through the whole process and will disappear once the WiFi is connected).
  5. Run android app 3DCraft to config WiFi per video.

This method does work for configuring open system WiFi networks with no password. After doing all the steps below the printer doesn't connect to WiFi, try “updating” to UI/LCD firmware version 34. After flashing version 34, the display will show that it is version 33. They forgot to increment the version number. Going back to version 34 helped with my printer received 2016-05-27 but one received 2016-09-02 didn't matter. On my printer received 2016-05-27, UI firmware version 34 is the only version that the smart config dialog stay up after releasing the button.

USB - G-code

  1. Connect USB to computer
  2. Use command “M550 SSID” - Replace “SSID” with the name of your WiFi network
  3. Use command “M551 PASSWORD” - Replace “PASSWORD” with the password for your WiFi network
  4. You should see IP address displayed in title bar where no connection was once displayed
M550 SSID         ;SSID = Name of WiFi network (case sensitive)
M551 PASSWORD     ;PASSWORD = Password for WiFi network (case sensitive)
  1. Install Malyan Link
  2. Connect USB to computer
  3. Once installed and running right click the Malyan Link icon in the Windows taskbar. It is a black “M” with a circle around it.
  4. Select Wifi wizard. “wifi” dialog should box appear
  5. Select your wireless network from the list or manually input your wireless networks SSID if using a computer without WiFi. If the option to manually input your SSID is not available please download the newest version.
  6. Click “Next” (clicking the labeled tabs gave me errors)
  7. Input network password
  8. Click “Next”
  9. Click “Connect”
  10. Click “OK” on the dialog box displaying “Please disconnect USB from printer”
  11. Click “Finish”
  12. Disconnect USB cable from printer and the IP address should show up

G-code file

  1. Save the file “wifi_setup.gcode” or Copy & paste the code section below.
  2. Using a text editor; Windows Notepad, Notepad++, or similar program
    1. Replace “SSID” with the name of your WiFi network - don't leave spaces after the SSID name
    2. Replace “PASSWORD” with the password for your WiFi network - don't have spaces after the password
  3. Save the file with the extension “.gcode” e.g., “wifi_setup.gcode”
  4. Copy the file onto a microSD card and insert the microSD card into the printer.
  5. From the Print menu select the file you just copied to the card.
  6. The printer will go through a short routine.
    1. The fan will turn on
    2. X & Y axis with move to home position
    3. SSID & Password will be saved to the printer
    4. The X-axis will move to the center of the bed
    5. The fan will turn off to signify completion

This method will not work if WiFi password contains a semicolon “;”
This method will not work for configuring open system WiFi networks with no password.
