Remote control of your 3D printer is a particularly appealing concept, especially if you've been forced into a USB tether in the past. Using your new 3D printer should be as simple as plugging it into a controller, uploading some G-Code and pressing 'Print'. However, having a laptop or desktop PC cluttering up space around your printer isn't the most desirable option. In the article, we are going to explore controlling your printer via a Raspberry Pi running the open source OctoPi Linux Distribution. Think of all the extra space and hassle free prints you could get stuck into. My favourite part of this little project is that we can do it for the fraction of the cost of a fully-fledged PC, get the exact same functionality and even add a streamable webcam to our setup.
