Watch directory

Is there a way to configure a watch directory in repetier server? I want to dump folders in this directory and they get auto added to the UI.


  • Yes, in the slicer manager you can set up watch directories. Select them as slicer and new files appear at the side to import with a single click.
  • Sorry, answer was for host:-(

    In server we have something similar. In global settings->Folders you can add folders for quick import. In Print tab you see them in the upload dropdown (right edge of button). This will open a browser for import directly at that position. Usefull if you use e.g. dropbox/google drive or store them locally on the same folder.
  • Thanks that worked!!!
  • But how can you automatically import gcode files to a printer in Repetier Server?
  •  Repetier-Server Monitor has such a function. It will watch a special directory where it shows all groups and copying/storing a file to it will automaticall queue/print/store it depending on folder. The server it self has no automatic import/print/queue folder. In most cases this is on a remote machine where you have no direct access anyway. And if it is on a network drive it is hard to correctly monitor correctly and monitoring gets quite slow.
