I really would like to run octoprint on pi.
I have installed it on pi, and it runs, but randomly stops due to serial exceptions.
I have tried many thing to remedy, but it still gives error and stops printing.
New pi power cord. 5v 3amp.
New mini usb cable w/ferrite bead.
64gig micro chip. Sandisk SD HC. (Worked great in drone recording 1080p)
Printer & pi both running on Tripp Lite UPS. (Dont know how long it would run, but it's been tested by unplugging ups)
I've booted into safe mode to eliminate possible plugin conflicts. Still gives exception.
I have a 25mm fan blowing on the cpu and a pi cam v1.2 connected, so my next steps are to remove those and test.
I have octoprint running on linux box at the moment. Running fabulously. Going on a week now. But filament runout is a feature I would like to add, and it seems like, to me the new guy, a better option to use gpio, rather than controller pins.
Any suggestions on what else I can do to figure this out would be greatly appreciated.
