Walter Schreppers received his Raspberry Pi weeks ago. After a day of hacking and programming he set up his Raspberry Pi as a network node to control his Prusa 3D printer.
Usually he need to tie up his laptop whole night long to control his printer, with his Raspberry Pi he could free his laptop. Via a web interface he can handle some basic instructions to 3D printer.
Walter plans to add a better stylesheet, drop down box, interface for a webcam and then release the code on github.
