    Not sure if I'm doing something wrong but I'm just copying and pasting the filed to the card. It read everything else but not the STL files. Any tips?

    Usually we upload an STL through the OctoPrint web interface. It will then be able to slice it.

    edit:

    The new LCD software does include a way to do slicing with Cura engine and some preloaded profiles.
    I will need to experiment with this myself.

    This is a post R2-release update to the LCD software. Quite a nice feature if it works.

    It was advertised so I hope it does :)

    I am aware of the Octoprint limitation to older CuraEngine versions, but still I got decent prints on another printer that way even if it's with less control. Will depend on the profiles I guess.
