Adding RasPi Later

Post by jasonbsimpson » Sun Dec 11, 2016 12:17 pm

So, I'm about to purchase a v3, and would prefer it with the RasPi, but they're sold out of those currently. If I purchase the printer without it, is it possible to just purchase the RasPi when more come in and install it later, or is it a huge pain to install it after I've already built the printer and would I be better off waiting for them to get more in stock?

Thanks,

Jason

Very easy to add later, you can buy the SeeMeCNC kit later and install or figure out mounts and buy it elsewhere so you can install it now.

Has anyone figured out mounts yet? My reading of the forum suggest they are not just straight forward standoffs.

You can order the standoffs from SeeMeCNC. I ordered them, used my own Pi, and wired it up to the 5v Aux on the Rambo board. Very nice setup, IMO. Oh and you need some #6 1/2in sheet metal screws. I just bought some of those from the local hardware store.

Thanks very much for the link. I had looked at all of the pictures on all of the parts pages but not read any of the detailed descriptions of those without pictures. Obviously missed them completely. Now I can order the replacement for my V2 just the way I want it.

I designed a printable version of the board mount http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1985636. Works very well in my V3.

I had a printed case for my Pi3 from another project, so I just hacked apart a microUSB cable to connect to the aux5V on the RAMBO and stuffed the case on in there. Works great!
