    Octoprint setup with Raspberry Pi

    Note!
    For a guide how to setup the hardware and software, i recommend that you see Thomas Sanladerer guide on Youtube. Octoprint recommends this video aswell. Thomas makes it real easy and explains everything you need to know. Link below:




    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHzN_MwunmE

    So I bought these not too long ago:


    • Raspberry Pi B+
    • Sandisk 16Gb Micro-SDHC Memory card


    I then printed a case for the raspberry and continued watching and following Tom’s guide.
    Worth mentioning is i used Windows for most of this since you need terminal knowledge to do this on Linux or Mac - I don't have any


    2015-01-08 07.45.37.jpg

    This is what i did after watching Tom’s guide a few times.

    1. Download the Octoprint image
    2. Formated the micro-SDHC card to FAT32
    3. Write the octoprint-image using Win32 Disk Imager
    4. Connected these to the Pi:

      1. Micro-SDHC with now Octopi installed
      2. HDMI-monitor
      3. Ethernet-cable
      4. USB-keyboard
      5. Printer via USB
      6. USB-charger onto the Pi

    5. After it booted i Expanded the filesystem
    6. Changed the password on the Pi
    7. Restarted the Pi and let it boot up

    I could now access
    http://octopi.local/ on my computer and begin setup up Octopi with the numerous settings.

    After setting up Octoprint, i can now upload either exported gcode from Repetier/Slic3r or upload .stl-files that Cura can slice on the Raspberry. Though, i will probably upload the gcode instead - since my laptop and computer have alot of computing power


    And again, i cant give much support on this, only a few things. But Thomas explains all you need to know, so if your interested in using Octoprint on a Raspberry Pi to make your printer wireless, watch his video

    What i need to do now, is make my raspberry pi accessable on the web using my own domain using Port Forwarding and DNS pointers. This way, i can remotely access my printed when not at home using a connected Webcam and the controls that Octoprint enables.

    Awesome!

    That mixes with my webcam idea Sounds really nice!

    What about this slicer?
    https://www.astroprint.com/p/cloud-slicer

    May be you can set up some sort of macro or something to get the whole thing generate "in the air"

    Where did u get your raspberry?

    This cam looks tiny and powerful enough to monitor the printer!

    I've looked at Astroprint. I think their UI is amazing
    But i wanted the challenge of the Raspberry Pi because its a really versatile device!

    You can use Cura with Octoprint, havent tried yet So much to try - so little time :/

    I got my raspberry at a swedish tech-store. They sell these everywhere and the price difference is so little that i didnt bother buying it of ebay

    I bought a RPi Camera Module last night, same as the one you linked. I have no proper installment on the printer for the camera. For stable timelapses you need to mount it on the side of the printbed - but for that i need a longer cable for the camera. So I bought this on ebay today: http://www.ebay.com/itm/291342540605...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    When that cable arrives ill mount both my RPi and the Camera properly on the printer. Making it really wireless

    Thanks for the ribbon cable link, just ordered one too, along with a RBPi

    Shall we start a SUBFORUM for RBPi hacks?

    This sounds so cool and right up my alley. Once I can figure out my clogging/jaming issue 100% I will for sure put some funds and time to making a wireless setup mainly for monitoring a print though as right now I do not trust even leaving the house while the machine is running let alone trying to print to the machine while I am at work haha

    Fantastic stuff! I'm now going to have to get this kit for my set-up, especially now I'm back and printing.

    Wow that is great! Next is to mount it inside the base of the printer

    Ps. Kul att se fler Svenskar som har köpt skrivaren! Var köpte du din RPi?

    RBPi looks tiny enough to fit inside, as long as Amps and Volts dont complain lol
