The objective of this project is to build a 3D printer with wireless connectivity. We made a 3D printer that can be controlled remotely via the Repetier Server. The custom-built 3D printer has a PiCam camera, LCD screen, SD card reader, and cloud management server to monitor and print remotely. The resulting printer can be accessed through any device with internet connectivity.
