A Prusa Mini 3D printer.

The tinkering tribe of makers and DIY enthusiasts has been bewitched by the charm of 3D printers for years. Riding the wave of this fascination, OctoPrint, the versatile 3D printer management software, has enjoyed a harmonious waltz with Home Assistant since version 0.19. But with the recent release of Firmware 4.4.0 for the Original Prusa MINI/MINI+, the limelight has shifted, and it's time for PrusaLink v2 to take centre stage.

This timely arrival of PrusaLink v2 is nothing short of a blessing for those struggling to find Raspberry Pis, the elusive components typically used to run OctoPrint. It's as if hen's teeth have grown even scarcer, making this new integration a breath of fresh air for the 3D printing community.

The recipe for PrusaLink v2's success is simple: all you need is an ESP-01 or the highly recommended ESP-01S, along with a smidgen of spare time. This straightforward concoction will seamlessly bring the Original Prusa MINI/MINI+ into your network, offering a streamlined 3D printing experience that even the most discerning maker can appreciate.

So bid adieu to OctoPrint, as the enchanting PrusaLink v2 takes the lead in this new dance between 3D printers and Home Assistant. The curtain has risen, and the stage is set for a performance that's sure to captivate the hearts of makers everywhere.

3D printers are more than just novelties (or machines capable of producing novelties), but an essential tool for many.
