and the Pi server mount is complete ( I did not design this just modified it to work with my situation.) I will be adding the ARL logo to the top of the Pi case once I get a chance. Now time to get octoprint working.

Can you share link to the original case or your modification?

(Jeremy G (WeisTek Engineering)) #3

Yes. Give me a bit I have to find it again.

This is awesome I wish I had a 3D printer or the funds for one. to go with my Pi

Got a picture of the whole printer? I am curious about where that pi is mounted.

I’ll just give you my.modified files. And I’ll find the link to the original so you can change the top as you wish. With my printer because the y-stage is to heavy I had to print this painfully slow. it took almost 5-6hrs to print all together.

The mount is for the back right of the printer. And the screw holes are a hair off (pretty sure it’s just my printer alignment) if you have a frog plate use 10mm screws for the top screw holes and print in pla if you have it (works better and is stronger) holes may need to be drilled.

@NathanielStenzel its mounted on the back right hand side (military right).

Thank you. Do you use Pi to drive printer controler from USB or Pi is controlling printer?

(Jeremy G (WeisTek Engineering)) #9

The pi will be running OctoPrint which is just like Repetier host except it makes your printer wireless and internet capable. The pi just sends the gcode to the ramps controller and it does the rest. Of course you will need to run your .stl files through a slicer program first (as I don’t think OctoPrint slices your files.)

I actually have a few more things I need to make for this printer I have a custom spool holder im working on, and a new power jack mount, as well as a 4 port usb hub mount (which can be mounted using the above mount).

And here is the original thingiverse file http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:30646 for the pi case.
