This is a backcover for the LCD Screen on the Anet A6 with integrated Raspberry Pi Zero W and RPi Camera 1.3.
I use this for Running OctoPi on the Raspberry.
19.01.2018: Added a version with just 3mm holes instead of the M3 nut inserts.
You will need:
• RaspberryPi Zero W
• RPi Camera 1.3 (I got mine from aliexpress.com)
• Camera Cable Zero to RPi Camera 1.3 (This is a special cable to use the small Camera input of the RPi Zero like this one: https://goo.gl/8MQoxh)
•The screws that are already used to hold the LCD
•2-4 M2 screws to hold the Raspberry
•2 M1? screws to hold the Camera. I used glue, but there are holes, if you want to use them.
How to get Octopi running on your Raspberry Pi Zero W: http://octoprint.org/download/
You can either use the USB ports to power and connect to the printer or the pinout of the RPi. You can find a tutorial how to use the UART connection to the Anet A6 here: https://goo.gl/kmkc7Z.
If you use the USB ports, note that you will lose some of your print volume.
Supports aren't needed but if you like the USB outputs to come out a little better you can use them. Keep in mind that you have to remove them from the camera housing if you use Cura.
I printed mine with a resolution of 0.4 and a 0.8 Nozzle, but you can achieve much better results with a 0.4 Nozzle and higher resolution.
