Creality Ender 3 V3 Plus + OctoPrint + Raspberry Pi

Just asking if anyone has used OctoPrint (OctoPi) with the new Creality Ender 3 V3 printers (we just got the new V3 Plus)?

It only has a USB A port on it that I can see. Do I just use a USB 3 male A to male A cable to connect them?

Any issues with the speed capabilities of this printer and printing from OctoPrint?

Thank you!


Nope, it won't run out of the box.

the Creality Ender 3 V3 runs on a crippled Klipper derivate. To connect it to OctoPirnt you have to make changes to the Creality OS.

Hmmm... that's a shame. I will read up on it tomorrow.

We are still in the early stages of using the printer but we so liked the remote management and monitoring abilities. Every printer we've gotten I've just automatically got a new Raspberry Pi and cameras and set that up.

Maybe as time goes on there will become alternative methods as well such as firmware and such.

Thank you for the information.
