To make things easier, we created a pre-configured bCNC Raspberry Pi image.
The Image has the following features installed and configured :
New in this release:

- SSH has been enabled
- The image is less than 4.0GB uncompressed but we recommend using a 8GB SD-card.
- The hardware serial port has been configured as [/dev/ttyAMA0]. The Raspberry Pi 3 needs and extra step.(Below)
- NodeJS V6.9.4
- To setup a RPi 3's, run the "RPi3 Serial Config" shortcut on the desktop it will configure the hardware serial port and is only needed for on a RPi 3's. It only needs to be run once and will automatically reboot the Pi.
Login credentails(SSH & RDP):
