Cool project. I might use it. Thumps up from here.

Thank you very much, but its a remix. The real work was one by the original designer, i just made it my own, lol

How do you get octoprint to display on the 5" display?

Hi Sorry i didn't see your comment before. i got octoprint connected to my raspberry Pi, and then you can just attach a screen to the Pi and use that as a display. i got mine on Amazon for about $35 or so. if you would like a good tutorial on setting it up search YouTube for Chris's basement and Octoprint install, or LCD install... he has great tutorials and thats how i was able to get both of them setup and running

!!!!You have done a lot of hard work here!!!!!

I do not have a 5 display like most of them here, so you could make an adapter for us normal mortals who only have a normal display of Ender 3 Pro and later have a bigger option to install.

This would be very helpful as it would make no sense for me to use your great design at the moment.
I would also like a possibility for Mosfet as a suggestion.

The cooling for (airflow) of PI is not so obvious because it is only partially covered by the fan.

Hey, thank you for commenting on this REMIX. I would love to be able to redesign this to make it work for you, but I have no experience with Fusion 360 or any other real design platforms. I ue tinkercad with basic shapes and try and make things work. it takes me 3-5 times of modifying to get things right and i feel that for what you need the best thing would be to click on the part that shows where i remixed this from and message the original designer.

the airflow issue is something that i just enlarged the opening he had already designed to just fit the fan i had on hand. i agree that it would be better placed inside blowing directly on the Pi, but testing showed that with this design at full load i get a 10-12 degree drop in temp which bring me from 50-52C down to just around 40C... so its fine in my opinino. the Pi can work up to 75C before it starts to throttle back down to save itself, so at 40C i am very happy with that...

Ok, so if the gentleman who originally designed this doesn't respond to you, chooses to not help you, or cant help, I will "TRY" and make something from scratch for you. I will do my very best to make it perfect, and will slice it to make sure it works. although I will not be printing it out as i do not want to waste filament on something that i would end up not using or throwing away. i hope that you can understand my reasoning for not wanting to print it. Well just let me know how it turns out and we will go from there.
