    You can, but it requires a computer. Stick the SD card in, and if it's in properly with gcode files on it, you should be able to queue them from MatterControl. Click the "Queue..." button, and a menu will pop up -- click "Load Files" under "SD Card" and the files on the SD card will show up in the queue. Once you start them printing, you can unplug the USB connection and the printer will happily keep going.

    Do *not* reconnect the USB before the printer is done. I found this out the hard way; if you reconnect it will reset everything in the middle of your print job and you will be left with a half finished object.

    They guide you through how to print from SD in the getting started video, which I strongly encourage you watch at least a couple times:
