Touch UI for Octoprint
For many 3D Printer owners, a Raspberry Pi is commonplace. Often they are used to run OctoPrint software, or the entire OctoPi distro. This allows wireless controlling and monitoring of your printer. Which is pretty neato.
This is where I decided I wanted to make a little more use of my Prusa Rework’s raspberry pi b+. I decided I would use it to also perform the functions typically handled by the arduino’s green LCD display.
Ordering a $15 WareShare TFT screen from ebay I got underway installing it to the Pi, then mounting the Pi to the Prusa.
