New user here. Questions:
- Why does a $3500 device feature a cheap UVC camera with resolution so low you can barely read the Ultimaker logo?
- Why not use some lightweight embedded Linux distribution (Alpine?) instead of bloated Debian with systemd that eats all free space and stresses mtd with constant writes.
- Where is a github repository for Ultimaker 3?
Because it's cheap? The machine is already expensive enough as far as i can see. There is nothing wrong per se with UVC, but this is indeed a pretty rubbish camera.
Yes it is a cheap camera, but that was the whole point, we wanted to just monitor prints, not add to the price for a super high-end camera.
That said, the camera defaults to 800x600 on purpose. It is 'good enough' for streaming purposes and is easy to work with, low bandwith etc. One use-case was to monitor a print remotly, vi
