As part of #1349 I've cleaned the 3d printing workspace and standardized their setup. Each printer now has its own 4 gang extension lead directly behind the unit. They are equally spaced to provide ample room for manipulation, and hopefully it stays as clean as it is now.

I've removed the PC I previously set up, as it didn't see much usage and was arguably taking up way too much space on the desk.

The extensions are stuck to the wall with velcro.

There is a Sonoff POW2 attached to my printer along with @ajlennon's printer, this will be documented as part of #1349.

Each printer is now running

Once we set up OpenBalena in the space, we can close #933 instead of creating a cloud-managed Balena.IO account. This plays well into #18 which I'm a big supporter of.

I have flashed Marlin 2.0 with a standard configuration, uploaded the binaries to github so they can be reprovisioned at any time. That can be found here:

Below is what the ideal setup should look like.



An extension each


All running Octobalena


A Sonoff on each, attached with velcro


A Pi each, attached with velcro
