Obico for OctoPrint

Obico is a community-built, open-source smart 3D printing platform used by makers, enthusiasts, and tinkerers around the world.

This plugin requires Obico Server to work. You can grab the server source code from the Obico Server github repo and run a self-hosted Obico Server. If you don't want the hassle of setting up and running your own server, you can sign up a Obico Cloud account.


Install via the bundled Plugin Manager or manually using this URL:


Follow Obico Setup Guide to set up this plugin.

Running the plugin locally

docker compose up -d

In another terminal:

To install the plugin in the container run:

docker compose exec {op/op_python2} pip3 install -e /app

Then to start octoprint (and by extension the plugin) run:

docker compose exec {op/op_python2} ./
