Check this for wiring: The GPIO3 on the Raspberry Pi Zero W is used to reset the printer.So i never worked on either octoprint or a raspberry before, how difficult is it to install and set up octoprint and do i need some connector pins for the MK3? is there a wiring diagram on what pins i need, and how many?
I got my pi zero w in the mail today. I haven't set it up yet, but I plan on doing a video on how to get octopi on it. I'll record the full process if you want to start from scratch. You mentioned putty, so I assume you're using Windows so I do my screen casting on that. I'm setting up a pi camera on it as well. I have a USB camera on my Pi 3 but its pretty terrible. I hear the pi cam is better since it goes directly to the GPU. I'll find out soon enough.jorgen.r wrote: ↑Thu Nov 09, 2017 6:35 pmhello, sorry for my late replay, been busy.
thanks alot for alot and good information.
so i have tried to connect to the raspberry a couple of times now. but i cant get it online. i have tried with wpa2 and a open network. i did connect to it local with the raspberry software. but when i connected to putty i could write anything in the cmd. So i dont know where to go now, seen alot of video, but non of the solutions worked. will it be solved with a hdmi adapter??
Printing tethered to your computer runs risks with power outages, automatic updates rebooting your computer mid-print, etc. Removing the SD Card and copying files over gets old quickly. Being able to just type in octopi.local in your browser to drag and drop files over wirelessly is totally worth it. I'm finishing up my script for recording. The only real difference from Mac and windows is editing the wifi settings and ssh which is built into the terminal. Apple Pi Baker is awesome on Mac to write pi images to an sd cards. The difference is in the tool you edit the octopi_network.txt file. I use pico (command line text editor), but you can probably use text editor. SSH isn't hard and you only really need to do it the first time.rotarypower101 wrote: ↑Fri Nov 10, 2017 3:10 amDoes anyone have a recommended tutorial for Mac that is clear and comprehensive?
Also would like to know which iOS apps to consider? Are iOS apps worth it?
Or are there better ways to get a video/time lapse feed on iOS ?
Would like to be able to be away from the machine and keep tabs on its progress, as well as pause/stop if something were going wrong.
Printing from a remote locations sounds fun, but can't really see how this would apply to me more than a novelty?
Does anyone not printing for profit use this functionality? As I assume it's a life saver for clients that delay and are tardy, and still being able to live a normal life and still be on schedule.
If you do not get in touch with http://octopi.local, then try IP-number insteadso i have tried to connect to the raspberry a couple of times now. but i cant get it online. i have tried with wpa2 and a open network. i did connect to it local with the raspberry software. but when i connected to putty i could write anything in the cmd.
