Would it be possible to connect a bigger Pi to the control board?

Would a beefier Raspberry Pi (3 B+ I'm looking at you) work connected to the control board like the Zero W?

I guess my question is more with regards to power and connectivity.

If it does work, I might eventually mod the control box to allow enough space for that, with access to the USB ports and potentially the SD card for full customisation access. :)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Cassiano,

I asked our devs and we haven't tested it so far. I can confirm RPi Zero W works, but I'm not sure if the EINSY board will have enough power for the RPi 3B+.

I will try to test it, in the meantime, try asking on our forum forum.prusa3d.com
