You can install open source OctoPrint software on your desktop or laptop computer as a general purpose tool to manage and print to a broad selection of 3D printers. The real strength of the OctoPrint project comes into play when you explore embedded solutions on affordable SBCs such as Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black computers for wireless printing, custom gcode or shell driven event hooks, automatic timelapse production and uploading and more. Here are some resources to help you setup your OctoPrint software for use with the desktop 3D printers currently offered at Adafruit.
Poke an eye out with one of your experiments? Harness the awesome power of thermoplastic fusion to print a microprocessor powered bionic replacement! It won’t help your vision much, but no one will doubt your mad scientist cred. The Bionic Eye Module is a 46mm 3D-printed servo-powered electro mechanical eyeball sized to fit into standard 50mm goggles. It uses 2 sub-micro sized servos and an Adafruit Trinket to create that creepy nervous tic.
