I like Octoprint

So I was sitting upstairs where it’s warm, instead of down in the cold basement, and suddenly I had the idea to print something I’ve been noodling on for a while. Click. Click. Click. Move the Octoprint browser window so I could see it while I kept doing other stuff. 23 minutes and 16 seconds later, the part is done. Maybe when I go downstairs to fix lunch I’ll take the part off the bed.

Somewhat appropriately, it’s a piece to adapt the pi camera to a 2x tele-extender from a digital camera I had about 12 years ago. So the field of view on my remote Octoprint window will mostly show the print instead of mostly showing the frame of my printer and the surrounding basement.
