Hello. I am getting a 3d printer that must stay hooked up to my computer at all times. Is it possible to hook up a raspberry pi with octoprint to it so I don not have to leave my laptop hooked up to it? And what else am I missing?
Well it depends on which printer you got
I'm using a Pi3a+ on a "Rumba" 3d printer (sharebot NG) and I check the printer using web browser, or ssh.
You only need to check if your printer is supported or try it!
