MKS TFT and Octoprint

Hi all,

Recently picked up an Artillery Sidewinder X1 which has the MKS Gen L and MKS TFT2.8. From what I have read the touch panel connects to the Gen L board via serial port, since the Octoprint(Raspberry Pi) connects to the Gen L via the USB (serial) will I loose TFT functionality if I use the OctoPi to run prints?

I prefer to use OctoPrint as I do it already with my Ender 3 but don;t want to loose the babystep function on the TFT.

Thanks, Jeff

This might help you

is it possible to use the built in touchscreen with OctoPrint / OctoScreen ...?
