as a total newbe to OctoPrint I am now surfing the website for a while, as well as the documentation. But to one of the primary questions I cannot find an answer to, yet, it doesn't seem to be covered at all: how does OctoPrint integrate with a random 3D printer's controller (like makerbot/ultimaker/some less prominent one like fabrikator)? What is the big picture?
I'm sure I'll eventually figure out how, but I think this is an important thing the website shoud tell right away, so I wanted to drop it here as a bit of feedback.
Thanks for making and maintaining OctoPrint, it looks really cool and I'm gonna be a user soon.
