OctoPrint: Control Your 3D Printer Remotely with Raspberry Pi and OctoPi
Have you ever wanted to control and view your 3D printer from your web browser and print things remotely? Thanks to the amazing OctoPrint software library and a Raspberry Pi, you can!
What is OctoPrint?
OctoPrint is free, open-source software that allows you to remotely perform and monitor all aspects of your 3D printer using a Raspberry Pi computer. You can remotely load new prints, monitor your extruder temperature, turn your printer off and on, check the status of your prints, watch your prints with a live video feed, and more.
Setting up OctoPrint is quick and easy. Let's get started!
Note: We have a separate guide for setting up and using Octoprint on the Ender 3 V2.
I created an OctoPrint video version of this guide as well if you'd like to check it out!
