Raspberry Pi Zero + Repetier Server

About: I like to create new things! I'm very interested in IOT and just Internet Stuff. I am not responsible for any injury or deaths caused by my projects.

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

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

" wget http://download.repetier.com/files/server/debian-armel/Repetier-Server-0.75.1-Linux.deb -O repetier_armel.deb"

and then start part 2 and 3 again
