It's on my "lpr" branch: github.com/greenarrow/Cura/commit/37a364902cc68f2dac5092960561897d4ef 7c484

This is a very basic implementation, see the commit note before using.
Can you give me a link to this patch? Thanks!
It's never fallen out yet, but I've only move the printer a couple of times since I put it in.

Fix in place with two bolts and clip the Rapsberry Pi in place.

That's a pretty cool way of using that! How well does plate hold the board? That was always one of my concerns with the design.

An even cheaper option would be to use a tp-link wr703 mini router, it has a little more oomph than a Rpi and gives you Wifi out of the box. running a slicer on it might be not such a good idea, though.
Brilliant! Combine this with an stl file interpreter on the host computer.  Printing would be:

File: Load STL file
Print: Select Printer> Printer options>Print to selected printer

Wow, just like printing in 2D!!!

 I have experimented with a patch to Cura to exactly this :)

So cool! I have been thinking of doing something like this--a computer and printer all in one.
