Hello, I an fairly new to 3d printing and came across octoprint to help me refine my process. I already own a raspberrypi 3b+ and am familiar witwith creating the system images. But before I pursue octoprint further i wanted to ask a question, context to follow.
Does octoprint/octopi affect the printer's onboard firmware? If I unplug the usb cable will the printer function as it already does?
I ask because I bought a budget chinese knockoff to experiment with and cannot find a source file for the firmware it already has. So if the octoprint program breaks it then i will only ever be able to use it with octoprint.
Thank you for your help.
