I have a k8200 printer connected to my raspberry pi 3 b, I use slic3r as my slicer.
Connected into my pi is the printer, creative labs chat hd camera, dongle for my rii i8s keyboard and a 3.5 inch touch screen.
The pi is powered using a 4m micro usb cable into a usb mains plug.
Now not on every print, it seems to be the longer prints, the printer pauses/stops printing during the print, sometimes I can press the pause and then resume and it carries on, the majority of the time when it happens I press pause and it tells me the astrobox has lost the connection to the printer.
I press the connect to printer button and it reconnects but I have to start the print again.
I tried a different mini usb cable to the printer and had the same issue.
The only other thing I can think is the pi isnt getting enough power using the 4m cable.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, everything is working great apart from this issue.
