I'm looking at the RPi 3B+ and see different versions or flavors such as Vilros, Element, and the Original from Raspberry. All say they are RPi 3B+. Does it matter which one I purchase? Are they they same? I'm going to be using it for OctoPrint and not much else.
Thanks for any advice you care to share.
I currently use Ultimaker Cura (Beta) to print via USB on my new Anycubic i3 Mega. I’ve heard wondrous things about OctoPi and the RPi.
Am I correct in my understanding that the RPi is tethered via USB to the Printer but one can monitor from another device via the web or my home network?
If I purchase the RPI3B+ will I be able to download an STL and slice it on it? Or is the Pi strictly printer management?
Thanks for any enlightenment you can offer.
i recently purchased a 3.5" screen for my RPI 3.
I followed instruction to install the drivers, which seemed to worked as can see all the booting up texts.
I then followed the instructions to boot to browser with TUI
After the reboot and load, the screen stopped on a blank/black screen. moving the stylus on the screen, I can see the Octoprint log in screen behind the block around the mouse cursor.
the same when I stop the TUI and the Pi loads to the desktop. When I move the mouse with the stylus, I can see the wallpaper appear around the mouse cursor.
I have been searching, but cannot find an explanation for this.
anyone have experienced this before?
Hi, I could use some help with getting my project to work. What I want to do is control 2 DC motors with an L298n driver and a Raspberry Pi 3 from my phone via Blynk. I also want to control the motors with the joystick widget in the Blynk app. I got my Pi connected to my phone over wifi with Blynk, but I am having trouble getting the Python for the joystick to control the motors with the driver. If you could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.
