    We just got our BB for our lab this past week. After running the calibration (the basic extruding test) that came on the SD card, I moved on to try printing Benchy from the SD. I select the file from the SD card, and nothing happens. At all.

    After doing a little searching I thought maybe OctoPi was interfering, so I unplugged it. Still nothing. So then I tried printing by uploading the file through OctoPi. Success!

    But ideally I would like to be able to print from SD as well as through the network. So any idea why prints from OctoPi work, but not from SD?

    The file on SD is missing the start code for heating bed and extruder.

    That's odd. But it seems you are right. I stuck my own file on there (that also printed from OctoPi) and it started right up. Thanks
