Hi Terry Tor
I am currently reviewing this for my family use. I have tried Repetier and octoprint to date. Now I am checking out AstroPrint.
1.) Windsor CT USA
2.) I love to build RC aircraft, I want to print jigs and parts. My kids love to create models and widgets. It’s a family affair
3.) We have two: Wanhao Duplicator I3 v2.1 and a Kossel Mini Delta 180
4.) I learned about it when I was searching for tools to monitor and manage our printers here at home.
Bonus: I would like to see a plug-in to print directly from a local slicer. (similar to octoprint or Repetier). That would provide the balance between what my kids need and what I want. I like to tweak settings, slice look at how the supports would be generated, re-slice, adjust heat, test the filaments etc. Then I can upload my final setting to the Astrobox for my kids to just pick and use.
Just bought MakerGeeks Maker Series PLA color Red. I may run a temperature tower, Find need more retraction, once done I could upload the filament profile . My kids only have to select the color and print.
Second would be able to manage two printers with one Pi3
Third would be to leverage my touchscreen I have on my Pi. (http://www.waveshare.com/wiki/3.5inch_RPi_LCD_(B))
Hope this helps.
