    How much different this would be from the LCD panel that Rapide will provide ?
    Anyone knows about that LCD? Is is only to 'display' or also to control?

    AFAIK it's for making the printer a standalone device so there must be some sort of CPU dealing with that, either inside marlin fw or by adding a Pi or something. The cost of the LCD version is $88 so a Pi is something they must have taken into care for it. However I also recall Ethan said "no touchscreen"....

    There are lcdscreens that can be added to any Marlin fw.

    But i think that Rapide will probably make an aluminium enclosure for this that can be easily retrofitted to a nice place on your printer Hence the 88$.

    Hey all,

    Just completed my Octopi setup. Managed to use an old Wifi USB dongle and a webcam scavanged from work. Super simple to set up - followed Tom's video instructions and it worked right away.


    Here is the auto-generated time lapse from it... Will work on better time intervals...

    I'm going to try to setup an Astroprint box once I get a Wifi dongle that is compatible.

    You dont actually need a Wifi dongle - i installed mine with a Ethernet cable and it made the installation procedure alot faster

    My printer is far from my router, so I need wifi. It works fine on Octopi, but Astroprint isn't seeing the wifi in the desktop. Ordered the recommended chipset on eBay for $4, but have to wait for it to come from China...

    Hi,

    Looks like I have the Octopi visible on the internet, including the webcam of the print in action - I'll be printing a new Pi case for the next two hours. If you don't find anything on TV, you can watch at:

    Under the Control tab. Comments are welcome.

    Watching live now! - I see your case prints on its end, what case is it? Unfortunately the columns holding the screws in my pi case broke off as I think they were slightly out of alignment and therefore under tension, so now I'm looking for a strong reliable case to replace it.

    Hi,

    It's this case:

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:604915

    It's a sleeve so you slide the Pi in - I'm going to try a different colour for the end cap.

    I tried another one as well and the same thing happened to me - broke the uprights in a snap together model

    @ clayton - Did your pi fit as a few people on the thingiverse site were saying it was a really tight fit?
