Tutorial Installing Octoprint On Raspberry Pi Zero W | Wireless 3d Printing


Hey, what’s going on, guys? Danna, from Mod bot here In today’s video, we are going to be installing octo print onto a Raspberry Pi 0w I’m gonna be swapping out my PI 3s 4 Pi 0 Ws because I can use those CPUs and those boards for arcade cabinets and other projects. While these PI 0 WS will be perfect. So I figured I would take you guys along for the ride and show you how to do so so the things you will need is a micro. SD Card a Raspberry Pi 0 W and an OTG cable, which is essentially a micro USB cable to a female USB 2.0 cable. I wanted to let you guys know. Also, though. That if you plan on using a webcam, you will need a Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 Mm, I recommend a 3 cos Wi-fi built-in. But the Pi 0 W has been working fantastic for running octoprint, but there has been a lot of noted performance issues. If you do plan on using the webcam streaming, it just doesn’t have the CPU processing power so aside from the three things that I listed, you will also need a power cable. Just a micro USB power cable will do. I will place a link in the description to this random one on eBay, but any one that you have laying around your house from a phone or a tablet or whatever else will do the trick, just fine, so first thing we’re gonna do is head over to octopi and download the latest image. I will place a link to the download page. Your version probably be different than the one that is up now, depending on when you’re watching the video, but again, you’re just gonna go ahead and download the latest image just like. I said a second ago. It does say that the Raspberry Pi 0 is not recommended because of the fact that there is performance issues, however, like I just stated, I have been running this on my machine and it’s completely flawless from working very well and it’s a hell of a lot cheaper. I picked them up for 5 dollars locally, but usually they go for about 10 and it’s a lot cheaper than picking up a PI 3 for 30 to 35 dollars. Especially if you’ve got multiple printers. You’re also going to need win32diskimager so you will need to download that. I will place a link in the description for that as well. This will allow us to flash the octo print image onto our micro. SD card, so you need to download and install Windows 32 disk imager. Once you’ve installed it and you’ve downloaded the octoprint image. Go ahead and plug your micro. SD card into your computer. Then on your computer, once you open up windows 32 disk imager. You’re going to need to click and find that image that you downloaded. This is the octo print image also. Make sure that you select your microSD card. You’re not overriding something else and just go ahead and click right. It’ll take a little while depending on your USB transfer rates. I think for mine. It took probably five to eight minutes or something like that, so I went ahead and skipped most of the install to save you guys some time and not bore you guys to death with a long green bar. So once the image has finished writing successfully, you should get a little pop-up that says something like write complete, and if that is the case, then you have successfully written the image onto your. SD card as you can see here, write successful. So then you can exit out and open up your SD card. You’re gonna be looking for a network config file as you can see here on the screen. And if you open it up in notepad, it will have no formatting and formating. It’ll look really terrible, so I recommend using like WordPad or whatever else is built into Windows. There is a note saying that they don’t recommend using it because of again performance issues, but I’ve yet to experience any issues or not performance issues, but issues with formatting. It’s worked fine for me, so you’re gonna go down to the part on here that I show where you have your network SSID and your password, and you need to make sure that you delete the pound signs in front of the three lines like I show you here. That basically enables them, and so at this point, you’re going to enter in your Wi-fi network name or i’t says SSID here, and you’re going to need to put your password where it says password here in those quotation marks. So just go ahead and do that. I show you for an example. I just put Network. I think name and password 1 2 3 as an example. Because I didn’t want to put my actual network name and password. Yeah, so once that’s done, make sure you go ahead and save this TXT file. Just take control s and eject your micro. SD card by actually clicking eject. So you don’t damage it and we’re gonna go and plug everything in. So insert your micro SD card into your PI 0w then go ahead and plug in that Kable. And you can plug that into your printer. Actually make sure you insert it into the little slot that says USB. Once you’ve done that. Go ahead and connect your power cable and you should see a green status. Led pop up on the pie. 0w that’s how you know that it is working or running so as you can see here. In the top corner, there is a green. Led so we are good to go now. At this point, you’re gonna have to figure out your raspberry. Pi’s IP address. If you go under File Explorer and network, sometimes it’ll show up here. If it doesn’t, then you will probably have to log into your router and find it so for mine. I have to go to and then I can look under my client list and see, but where it says, Okto print or octo pies. But it’ll name it and I’ve got three. Cuz I’ve got multiple printers on my network, but I know which one’s mine. The latest one I just did is 192.168.1 and once you enter that into your address bar, it will load up. It might take a little bit, but give it some time and it will pop up and you will be greeted with this setup wizard, and it’s pretty simple to follow through, so I’m just going to go ahead and click. Next and then create a username and password to login to your octa-pie and then for this, keep access control or disable access control. You can read that. I always keep access control. That’s just how I run mine. And they recommend it for safety, depending on again. What you are planning on doing with your octa-pie install? But that should be fine for anyone who just wants to print from the local. Wi-fi network via you know, a computer tablet or something and you can import a slicing profile. I don’t slice things using octo print, but that’s an option and then you can name the model. I usually do that because again. I’ve got multiple occupies with multiple printers. So that way I can tell which printer you know? I’m dealing with so this is for the a net eight. After that, you are done, you may want to reboot at this point. Octo print just to make sure that it connects with your printer or that it shows that your printer is connected to it. If you get this error, don’t worry, you just hit refresh and it will fix itself. I did get it like once or twice when I was trying to do different installs. But if you just refresh your browser, it’ll be fine so now. I’m logged in, and I will connect via the serial host to my printer and then choose the Baud rate, which is gonna be 1150 200 or 250 thousand, depending on your printer. Hopefully you know that if not, try both to see which one works and you have successfully installed octoprint and you are now up and running. You can upload your STLs. If you’re planning on slicing, you can upload your G code. If you just want to print directly with already pre sliced files and you can print away and monitor all of your prints. So this is how to get it running on the PI 0w I’m really excited that I finally got my hands on like four of these. So that way I can make nearly all the printers that I use wireless.
