I have a plan on building a 3D Printing Farm, using an ERP software, OctoPrint and Node-RED.
My main focus right now is to integrate Node-RED with OctoPrint, more specifically using Node-RED to trigger/click the 'Start Print' button on OctoPrint.
I was thinking of using the 'http request' node together with a GET request to retrieve the OctoPrint website and then either PUT or POST requests to start the printing.
I have no idea whether that would work. Opinions and alternative solutions would be appreciated.
