Introduction: Raspberry Pi Zero + Repetier Server

If you managed to get a pi zero then you have noticed it is crazy tiny and it works well for low-er use CPU programs, one of which is Repetier-Server. Repetier Server is a bridge between you Repetier-Firmware controlled 3D Printer and your web-browser. The setup is easy, you will need the fallowing to get started:

1) Raspberry Pi Zero

2) OTG USB HUB or OTG adapter and USB HUB

3) Power cable

4) usb ethernet or wifi adapter

5) SD card with raspbian image

Step 1: Open Putty (or Any Other SSH Client) and Connect to Your Pi

Enter the fallowing commands to install the server:

1) wget -O repetier_armel.deb

2) sudo dpkg -i repetier_armel.deb

3) sudo service RepetierServer start

its done!

Step 2: Open Server and Your Done!

the server address will be by default '[ipaddress]:3344'

It is weird to me that this simple set of instructions are not available on repetier's page, or at least i could not find it. Just the SD image. It is a bummer if you would want to use a Pi 3 that you have already configured and handling other projects. Great tutorial! Works beautifully.

The command in part 1 is not showing the complete link. try

" wget -O repetier_armel.deb"

and then start part 2 and 3 again
