Powering The Octopi Off The Printers Power Supply

Was tired of having the power sockets in the wall full. With the new printer, I would need 4 slots to power both the printers and both their pi’s running octoprint.

I ended up ordering some buck converters and the things needed to hook them up to the Ender3.

I got everything soldered together and cranked 24v from the Ender3’s power supply down to 5v so it would not release the magic smoke from the pi

Got them added to each printer and ended up printing out some cable clips and an enclosure to keep everything nice and tidy.

Now that both printers have the buck converters I need to add LED strips to the printers, so I can clear up even more space in the power strip.
