EZPi-Octopi Upgrade to my CR10 3D Printer

This upgrade is very good to do as it allows you to have remote access to your 3D Printer
and having a USB Web Cam you can visually monitor in-real-time the printing job.

Have not had time to add more info yet, because I had trouble with a
cheep micro 32 GB SD card which goes into the Raspberry Pi 3B,
as the EZPi image file on it for several times in a row became corrupted.
So I had to order a high quality micro SD card
and I used a USB3 connection which then imaged with no errors too.

It is working very well now.
