Purchase Proposal - Raspberry Pi 3 B+ for 3D printers


(Jaimyn Mayer) #1

Hi All,

I propose that we buy 3x raspberry pi 3 boards and cases for our 3 main printers. The older pi’s that are currently in them are very slow to load pages and slice. Upgrading the pi’s will greatly improve the user experience when using our printers.

3x Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (link) - $175
3x eBay cases to fit (link) - $30
Total: $205

I’m happy to wait on these, but posting now so they can be voted on at the next digifab meeting. It should be pretty easy to upgrade them and I’m happy to organise it.
