# Raspberry Pi

OctoFarm comes wrapped in a nice pre-built image for the RaspberryPi running on Ubuntu 64-bit. Similar to OctoPrint's OctoPi, FarmPi comes with all you need to get up and running with OctoFarm. You have the option to use FarmPi, or manually install OctoFarm itself. Both instructions are below. FarmPi was created by Maurice Kevenaar (opens new window) and all credit for it's creation goes to him. You can find the FarmPi Github (opens new window).


This image does NOT include OctoPrint... You will need that on another device / installed seperately somewhere...

You can find more information about FarmPi here: FarmPi Documentation (opens new window)

# Supported Printer Amount


This is a guesstimate, these figures are due to change as feedback is received on the image.

RaspberryPi # of Printers
3A+ 5
3B / 3B+ 10
4B - 2GB 20
4B - 4GB 40
4B - 8GB 80
  1. Download the FarmPi image from github or the official FarmPi mirror. Always make sure you're getting the latest version.
  1. Flash the image onto your microSD Card.
  1. Configure your WiFi by editing farmpi-wpa-supplicant.txt on the root of the flashed card when using it like a thumb drive, or use an UTP cable.

  2. Boot FarmPi after flashing the SD Card.

  3. If your network PC supports bonjour you can find your instance at http://farmpi.local or the ip address that your router gave the device.
