    There are a lot of nice features on that printer, if I was just starting out, that would be high up or even at the top of my list.

    Did you see the pic of the control board itself? Screw terminals for the power inputs (and the heated bed input/output) that are identical to the ones used on the PSU, no more goofy plastic connectors.

    EDIT for pic.

    While I could make room. I just wont use more than one maybe two printers.
    I already have 2...one at least has to go. I hate having things in my house or shop that i never use.

    In the 3dPrinting nerd interview, they mention soldering something to attach a Pi-Zero..but then its integrated into the machine.

    Going to have to get a pi-zero and figure that out too.

    The Pi Zero is not quite as rare as hen's teeth any longer although getting them in quantity is still difficult, you only need one :)

    Even if I don't no reason I can't just hook a regular pi up via USB.. but would be nice to have it integrated and not have 2 power cords and all that.

    I am not a fan of the rPi Zero, it is under-powered if you use WiFi and there is no ethernet port. I am still a fan of the reliability and speed of a wired connection. Its not like a Prusa is a portable printer. The way it is integrated into the board makes adding a touchscreen impossible, so all you really get is the web interface.

    I'm too claustrophobic to go under my double wide to hardwire things lol. So I generally use wifi.

    I really like the octoprint web interface its all I use on my Robo R1 anyway..even though it is sitting right next to my PC. It only need the connection to upload the file and start the print after that..doesn't matter anyway right?
