OctoPrint is the most popular 3D printer management software for wirelessly monitoring and controlling your 3D printer. The Raspberry Pi, which is a single-board computer (SBC), is commonly used to run it.

Not only does OctoPrint make the entire process simpler, but it also makes 3D printing more efficient. It makes using a 3D printer and gathering statistics incredibly straightforward and easy, and thus is by far the best upgrade for your printer.

OctoPrint is a wonderful tool, but it does have some restrictions despite its many strengths. One of them is the inability to use more than one printer with a single OctoPrint instance. Of course, you can handle numerous printers at once by choosing a different printer when the first print is complete-just not at the same time.

At the moment, you have to install multiple instances of Octoprint on the Raspberry Pi if you want to run more than one printer at the same time. Since OctoPrint wasn't designed for more than one printer, running multiple printers at the same time isn't officially supported.

But it's possible!

In this article, we will discuss different ways of getting started with OctoPrint for multiple 3D printers.
