  1. 1. OctoPrint Tutorial
  2. 2. What is OctoPrint? ● OctoPrint is a host software similar to Printrun, Cura, Repetier Host or MakerWare. ● The host software controls the 3D printer by sending it the commands necessary to do it’ s job.
  3. 3. How? ● Host software is run on a computer that is connected to the Arduino/microcontroller through a USB cable. ● Host software sends GCode files to the 3D printer, one line at at time.
  4. 4. Why? The ATmega328 chip found on the Uno: Flash 32k bytes (of which .5k is used for the bootloader) SRAM 2k bytes EEPROM 1k byte The ATmega2560 in the Mega2560 has larger memory space : Flash 256k bytes (of which 8k is used for the bootloader) SRAM 8k bytes EEPROM 4k byte
  5. 5. Problem ● Computer must be tethered to computer throughout the job. ● Inefficient. This is not computationally intensive process. All it does is send a couple of text lines at a time.
  6. 6. Solution: OctoPrint + Raspberry Pi
  7. 7. Advantages ● Using a Raspberry Pi, OctoPrint allows you to untether your existing 3D printer from your laptop or workstation and turn it into a WiFi enabled one.
  8. 8. Installation
  9. 9. Installation ❏ The software is completely free and open source. ❏ Go to octoprint.org and download OctoPi, an SD card image that includes OctoPrint plus everything needed to run it. ❏ Flash the image to your SD card (detailed instructions are linked in the website).
  10. 10. Instructions ❏ Connect WiFi dongle and make sure the Raspberry Pi is connected to the local WiFi. ❏ After booting up the Raspberry Pi, OctoPrint should be available at http://octopi.local
