I bought a used raspberry 2b to use with Octoprint, in my country the sellers have the ability to triple or triple the price of things and to pi 3 can cost more than $ 100. I watched a video of T. Sanladerer where he installed Octoprint in a Pi2 and I thought it would be enough.
However, I struggled a lot to get it to work properly, the curves always slowed down, the printing times became longer and the results were not what I was looking for. I was about to stop using Octoprint and go back to the sd card.
A few days ago, just to investigate, I decided to install Prusa Slicer 2.0. The change was gigantic. Not only do the impressions come out better, it's that Octoprint works with a fluency I never had before.
I can not understand why the change from Cura with Octoprint Plugin to Prusa Slicer produced this. But where Octo had difficult to trace the curves, now it does it fast and without suffering.
I do not have enough knowledge to understand, and I am sure that my standard Cura configuration was not sufficiently polished. But, with very few changes, Prusa Slicer did something that I did not get with Cura after several months changing settings. I share the experience because perhaps someone is suffering the same problems. Thanks for read me.
