Now in PrusaConnect, go to Settings of your printer, find the API key, and copy it to the clipboard (ctrl+c or cmd+c).

Open up PrusaSlicer, go to Printer Settings tab

and click the cog icon next to the printer list to add a physical printer profile.

In order to send files from PrusaSlicer to PrusaLink, you have to be connected to the same local network as the printer. The other way is to use VPN.

Go to Plater tab and import an object of your choice to get printed.

We chose this cute sheep from PrusaPrinters.

Adjust the settings, click Slice now, as usual.
Hit the new G> button on the bottom right to send the file to the PrusaLink directly.

Name your G-code, check the Start printing after upload checkbox and hit OK. 

The G-code will now be uploaded to your printer and the printer should start printing.

If you want to see the progress of the upload to your printer, go to the Window menu and click the Print Host Upload Queue.
If the printer is printing another file during the upload, the data transfer might be significantly slower. Consider uploading files when the printer isn't busy.
