The Octopi solution works with a Raspberry PI, and on it the Octopi firmware. The device you set up on your wifi and you connect it to your 3d printer’s USB. Then you have a web interface on the Raspberry’s IP address that allows you to manage all the things about your connected printer. All the settings like temperature, mesh, and basically anything else you can manage through a local LCD. And- you can upload your jobs to the raspberry and start/manage and adjust temperature and such. What I really like is that you can connect a raspberry camera and follow your jobs.
The Duet I find in use and possibilities more pleasant. because in addition to everything that the octopi can, you can also modify the system files online. And printer updates can do, directly in the firmware. Moreover, you do not need a separate box because the Duet2wifi already has everything on board.
The disadvantage is that you can’t attach a camera to the Duet. There is a possibility em an IP camera to integrate into the DWC, Duet’s web based remote app. And such a wifi IP camera is easy to make yourself with a cheap esp unit.
