MP 3D Printer WiFI Connect will make connecting your Monoprice Select Mini 3D Printer to WiFi a quick and painless process.
Follow the steps below to get your Select Mini connected to your existing 2.4 GHz wireless network.
1. Disconnect USB cable from the printer
2. Turn on the MP Select Mini.
3. Open the MP 3D Printer WiFi Connect App.
4. Verify the correct SSID is displayed.
5. Enter wireless network password.
6. Use the printers dial and LCD to navigate to the “Move” menu.
7. Press and hold the dial button.
8. Release the button when the “Smart config started” message is displayed.
9. Tap the “Connect to WiFi” button and within 10-60 seconds the process should complete.
The printer's LCD will display "Smart config success" when the process is complete.
The iPhone will display "MP Select Mini is now connected to Wi-Fi."
You will also notice the Select Mini has been assigned an IP Address that is displayed at the top of the printer's display.
Note: If the "Smart config started" message does not stay after releasing the button you can hold the button down through the whole process and the message will disappear once the Wi-Fi is connected.
If the correct SSID is not displayed, go to the iPhones Wi-Fi settings and switch to the appropriate wireless network.
Wi-Fi and USB cannot access the printer simultaneously.
Disconnect USB cable from the printer if you want to use the Wi-Fi function.
Wi-Fi works with 2.4 GHz b/g/n networks only.
If you have a 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz network using the same SSID(wireless network name) you may have trouble connecting the printer to your wireless network.
For the initial Wi-Fi setup try moving the printer closer to the Wi-Fi router.
Ratings and Reviews
My MP Select Mini finally on Wi-Fi
I have a long and complex Wi-Fi password that I have not been able to get my Mini to accept, even after trying multiple methods. This app finally was able to make it work!
One improvement I would suggest is to have the app itself give instructions for how to get the printer into the correct mode for setup. That way it's self contained and rely on reading those instructions in the app store description.
Great Job, Matthew!!
Not only does Matthew do a phenomenal job as an admin for the MP Select Mini FB page, he consistently looks for ways to improve how we can get the most from ours printers, but works tirelessly to develop solutions, workarounds and practical tools to pull every last drop of capability from this amazing little printer with an incredible following.

This unit does have wifi -dummy 1. Read up on it and your firmware requirements.
This app isn't for uploading g.code- Read up on your machine about how to use the wifi through the "ip address" to upload g.code.
Also nice work on the app, makes it pain free..
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
