    Octoprint or Astroprint?

    Which would you choose or use and why versus the other one? Working to set up Pi and trying to figure out which one to go with.

    I do slice with Astroprint, then load the gcode on Octoprint and go.

    Astroprint is the easiest to use and setup- but Octoprint has more functionality built into it and has support for custom controls through the interface.

    Quick question. After finishing set up on the pi I need to have my monitor back. Do I power down the pi uninstall monitor and then power pi back on after I ensure it has web enabled access? Just want to make sure I follow steps to avoid any headaches.

    So make sure to enable ssh in the menu before uninstalling the monitor, then I can access through web once pi is on my network?

    Thanks. I posted in the Octoprint thread about connecting. Can you post up your settings that you use bolson (or anyone else)

    I think I have them correct. Get an error code trying to connect that says Extruder not on and min temp error but I don't have the extruder connected since it is currently out of commission.

    The only settings you need to be able to connect:
    Baud rate: 114200
    And the correct USB port.

    Other then that you don't need any more settings.
