    Can I swap out the PI?

    I can see no issues with this. And yes you will have to reflash/have a separate card.

    HM 4.2.4 3D Printed Case

    An FYI for those looking for a case for a HM 4.2 with Raspberry Pi Zero W (RPi Zero W); the 2line-TC-Rpi-A+ or 2line-probe-Rpi-A+ cases work as is, as does the Heater Meter 4.2 Sliding Back Case located at

    Fusion 360 issues
