$300 3d Print Server
See it live here: https://print.adamoutler.com/webcam/?action=stream&1505786519730
So a couple of weeks ago, I picked up a 3D printer from +Keith I Myers. It was used, but he threw in a bunch of rolls of filament to go with it. I calibrated it, printed a few things, and I got annoyed with the process of downloading, unzipping, editing, scaling, g-coding, then transferring to an SD card, then ejecting the SDCard, then inserting the SDCard, then starting the print job.

So I tried a few managed prints, and eventually I decided I needed a print server and it was between two items, Repitier host, and Octoprint. After talking to +Keith I Myers again, he recommended Octoprint. I had to agree with his logic.

I installed Octoprint on a raspberry Pi, and I noticed there were several interesting plugins, including one for controlling a TPLink smartplug. This allows me to turn on and off the printer as a part of the print job, which is great! so I nabbed that up and installed it. The process was very simple and integration was practically self-explanatory after assigning a static IP to the device.

Now my worflow is download, drag-n-drop to the website, and hit the print button. Couldn't be simpler, and it can be done from anywhere in the world.

Items Required below:
Monoprice MP Select Mini V2 $220: https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=15365
Raspberry Pi 3 $34.99 : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CD5VC92/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
TPLink SmartPlug $24.99 : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0178IC734/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Octoprint Free Raspberry Pi Distro: http://octoprint.org/

Now I know what you're thinking...But wait, that's only $279.98, and you said it was $300. ... Ok, so take that $20 and buy some filament, or setup a year of domain registration, you nitpicky person. :)

Don't install the app for a website just because it is suggested.
Most apps are just an alternative web browser. They also come with a lot of baggage such as location, usage, and sensor access. This PSA has been brought to you by common sense. Now stop installing all those apps.

This is why I don't use the Comcast modem
While it appears nice on the surface, just remember that Comcast isn't paying for the electrical bill. They charge their customers $10/month for a rental fee and the customer pays for the power costs. Comcast has a customer-supported network. Now Comcast is actually increasing the amount each customer will pay so they can promote their services during this catastrophe.

Anyone want a new Google Pixel 2 for review and to keep? 760-706-7425
