Have a 3-D printer at home but want to get more prints done throughout the day, even while you're out? Then this is the project for you. With your Pi, you can start and even monitor prints from anywhere.
This project runs off of a custom OS for the Pi called Octoprint OS. OctoPrint OS is an operating system specifically made for the remote 3-D printing server that runs on the Pi. Once set up, you can monitor temperatures, motion settings, terminal log, and even connect a webcam to monitor the print from anywhere. You can print from your laptop or even from your phone with the OctoApp Integration!
