Controller Memory (SD Card 32gb)

The stock 1F controller is shipped with a 32gb SD Card. Is there any benefit or can you upgrade to a 64gb Micro SD Card? I need to reflash because I made the mistake to upgrade to Firmware 1.1.1.
Will reflash to 1.0.9 or the new 1.2? Any comments?

Hey Wayne,

you can benefit of the larger size after flashing (e.g. to store more g-code programs, or to create a larger swap).

You enlarge the filesystem by calling ‘raspi-config’ as root or with sudo, and then under “Advanced Options” you choose the option to enlarge the filesystem to the SD card’s size:

After enlarging, you can check the size with the command “df -h

The sd image will auto expand to whatever storage is on the card so no need to sudo into anything.

The only thing a larger card will do is add more storage space.

Hey Onefinitycnc, hey Wayne,

Seems to me that I knew this already, but things keep falling down the big stack overflow :slight_smile:

What Raspberry PI board do we have in the BuildBotics style controller?

Hey Wayne,

it’s a Raspberry Pi 3B (not plus).

The version of the Raspberry Pi OS on the Onefinity Controller image is Raspberry Pi OS 9.3 Stretch of 2017 with a Linux kernel 4.9 and chromium-browser version 60.
