    Not only for the 5v but also for higher quality and better response/stability....

    I have good news for you guys!

    When I was replacing my power supply, I noticed that the PCB does already step down of the 12V to 5V.
    In fact I was stupid because that was so obvious.
    All chips run at 5V and not 12V (old ones, the new are at 3.3V), so the 5V would be there somewhere.

    And in fact it is quite easy to use it.
    Just use the existing jumper pins there:

    Those pins might be used for the LCD extension, with the power supply and the serial pins.
    And I guess the LCD will be something similar to a Pi, so the 5V have enough current for it.

    The new power supply looks exactly the same from outside. It is from same manufacture in China. Only the electronics are a bit different to give the 400W power.

    How do you set it up so you can access the octopi from anywhere and not only on your network?

    Probably using a DDNs service like no-ip.org or such.

    Internal setup

    I've installed my Pi inside the printers case.
    Instead of describing everything in words, here are the pics

    I've replaced wifi with ethernet-cable. Uploading gcode and webcam streams better through cable.
