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 help to have visual monitoring in-real-time of your printing job.

   List of Parts Used

1) Raspberry Pi 3B
2) Raspberry Case with Fan and Cooling Heatsink: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhmjlL3Pkhs).

  I used:(https://hobbyking.com/en_us/15w-3a-usb-charger-1.html).
