OctoPrint and OctoPi Basics Series – Hardware

Please visit www.DIY3DTech.com for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be looking at the hardware we need to run to the OctoPi distro of OctoPrint and I recommend the Raspberry Pi Ver2 as with OctoPrint you have to run a printer, stream video, power a web server and slice STL files as well do time-lapse videos and so on. So you need a little horse power and the Raspberry Pi ver2 with a quad-core CPU handles all of the very well! Also below you will find a list of suggested to get you OctoPi / OctoPrint based server up and running:
