Timelapse

Recommended Posts

I am interested in setting up a web cam or an old iphone for capturing timelapse videos of my print. I currently use a webcam with Icam software to occasionally check in on a print, but don't have it setup for timelapse.

I would be interested in hearing what software or methods people have used and any suggestions as to what might be my best option.

I am on a mac.

I believe Octoprint on a raspberry pi had a feature for that, people were using.

Other than that, I don't know, I just got my DSLR and some video editting software.

Thanks Titus, I have just been snapping photos every once in awhile when I get a chance and I am checking on a print. I have been meaning to look into Octoprint more to see what all I can do with it.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
