    RPi takes 1A from the 5V.
    I am not sure if the power source will support the extra 1A but I will try it anyway.
    The 12V output is the one with the most power consuming for the heating elements.
    These new power sources complaint if they can't (or start smelling burn ).

    May be if you stream video with RBPi cam at the same time another user is connected and the printer is printing in ABS may ruin your print

    I wouldnt mess with the power source for the printer, it's just 1 extra cable coming out of the case in the worst case

    Why would that ruin the print? :P Curious

    You can connect the USB-PSU to the back of the female power cable connector inside the printers case.

    Just add a connector to the two red cables shown in the picture, and solder in your wires to the USB-PSU powering your RBPi. That way you always have power for your RBPi as long as you have connected the power cable to the printer Just a thought, maybe it would be of use. But having your RBPi inside the Printers case, certainly makes the RBPi Camera installation harder :P

    Where do you solder the 5v cable to the RPi? To the pins? If so which ones?

    I assumed that the Rapide Lite used a RUMBA board - but i cant find any model online that looks the same as ours :/ Maybe its some kind of special model so you'll have to find out yourself - on the Logic Board, maybe you can see some +5v port on there?

    I printed this last night, works really well: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:402356

    My PSU cable was a bit to large for the hole - but i opened it up using a exactoknife.

    I went for 0.1mm layer height (0.25 first layer) and a 5mm brim to make it stick firmly to the bed Took a while to print but it was very sturdy when screwed together
