Raspberry Pi Overheating

by electronron

I've been using a Raspberry Pi 3 as a makeshift desktop PC next to my printers to set them up. The printers have octoprint on them with custom controls setup for Tramming/Leveling the bed it's also useful to get the web cams in the best position and focused.

When setting up my printers today I just left the Pi running with Chromium browser up with the octoprint server page and a couple of hours later when I went to check on a print the over heat thermometer popped up.

I used the terminal window and issued the command "vcgencmd measure_temp" which revealed that my RPi was running at 79.8°C.

After some research I found suggestions to switch to Firefox which I did and now I'm running at 65°C

Chromium is a resource hog and I suggest not using it if you don't have to.

Just thought I would pass along my experience in case someone else was looking for an answer to the overheat problem.

Accessing Octopi remotely through the internet

by athedrummaster

I can access Octoprint just fine on my home network. I attempted to open port 80 on my router, but it seems my ISP is blocking that port. I set up forwarding on 8080 and I can access my camera remotely, but I would like to be able to use Octoprint remotely too. What do I need to edit to make this happen?

cura to octoprint

by drewboy06

Before i started using Octoprint, I used Cura and a mini SD Card. The time estimations were fairly accurate.(only a few minutes off) Ever since I switched to Octoprint, the time estimations have been off by 2-3 hours. I have no idea if this has to do with different settings of using Cura with Octoprint or if its just my printer screwing up.
