    Im just in the process of printing a pi camera enclosure then a pi case for octoprint to mount on my printer.
    Using a more recent Pi generation for your octoprint? I had issues with an older generation Pi in that it couldnít keep up with the amount of Gcode in the job which resulted in poorer jobs. Went back to using the sd card until I get it sorted as it was more consistent.

    • Im going to buy a Pi 3 B+ for it, but at the moment I just want the camera running so I am using one of my older units, being the Pi 2 model B. I am intending to swap the stock firmware at some stage as well, but that will probably be a task I will do when I get around to replacing the hotend with a all metal one, most likely something like the Titan Aero.

      When I get the new Pi 3 unit, I will let you know how it goes running the printer.

      • Iím using marlin on my ender 3. Will be getting a 1.1.5 board next month when they come out. The 1.1.4 silent boards arenít being made anymore and theyíre out of stock.

          I swapped out hte stepper drivers on my for the TMC2208 after a few days of having the i3 Mega. I hate the sound the stepper motors make when they are not getting a nice sinusoidal signal. I did the same thing with my laser engraver.

          • I have done a couple of small test prints using the Pi 2 model B as the controller and so far I have not run into any issues. Im trying another print now with timelapse recording as well to see how it goes. I think if anything would cause it problems, the timelapse would, but so far so good.

              My problem was just large gcode files, small ones were fine. Iíd have to have a look at the size of the files I had problems with. The symptoms to look for are non-smooth prints. My time lapse during those prints worked fine which was why I couldnít figure the problem out.

              • I have a couple of larger prints to tackle later on, so it will be interesting to see if I have the same issues.

                • I did another print today using the PI which took a bit over 5 hours without any issues other than the PETG losing adhesion to the bed right before it finished and ruining the print. grrr.

                  • Just a project recommendation to you guys that like using your 3D printers. I recently sold a heap of Taito parts and one that stands out was the coin door yellow blanking plate all Taito doors use except when it has a start button that is the reason this hole exists on the coin door in the first place.
                    I got hammered by guys asking about these plates and unfortunately, I only had two for sale and sold them at $10 a piece. I could of sold 15 of these things. One guy was going to buy a whole door solely for that plate. I agree, not a big earner but I think a constant earner for your efforts maybe and simple to make as well as quick to turn out.

                    Here's some pictures so you know what they look like and roughly what size. Anyone interested in exact dimensions, let me know and I'll get them off my new one I have....

                    • I just completed a print of the spool holder for my i3 mega using octoprint with timelapse and it worked out fine. The timelapse function is quite amazing at 11 seconds to view what took 5 hours

                        • That looks awesome. Nice job. Most of the time if I paint something, it looks like it was done by some splash painter.

                            The model has a really cool snap lock face plate design.

                            • Finished the last pieces.

                              Around 145 hours total for the 5 pieces.
