Let’s start with a list of things you need:

  • printHAT 2 control board
  • Raspberry Pi 0/1/2/3/4 (RPi 2/3/4 are recommended for a smooth user experience)
  • micro SD card (8GB or more)
  • wrecklabOS software package (pick Mainsail or OctoPrint distribution)

On Raspberry Pi 4 we strongly recommend you use forced air cooling to cool both the Pi and the printHAT 2. Checkout our 3D Printed Enclosures!
