There is an active community of Printrbot users and staff configuring and using Octoprint with their machines. Printrbot was one of the first to bundle a Raspberry Pi and Pi Camera with a printer-kit --  PrintrBot Go v2 kit -- and have been mentioned an interest in rolling out 3D printing host software (OctoPrint, AstroPrint, etc.) with the other machines in the future.

Printrbot Go series launched with bundled, onboard OctoPrint embedded systems inside.
