Ultimaker S5 Plugin requested: use the built-in camera to make a timelapse

Posted · Ultimaker S5 Plugin requested: use the built-in camera to make a timelapse

Hey all, 

 

Is someone here able to create a plugin that uses the built-in camera of the Ultimaker S5 to make a timelapse of a print? And an additional request: is it possible to store it on the plugged-in USB? The network within my company is protected in such a way that it isn't possible to keep a stable Wi-Fi connection.

A plugin would be possible, but then it will be stored on your computer. Saving to the USB stick on the printer is not possible when running a plugin in Cura. But anyway, such a plugin is currently not available.

 

But there is python script which does timelapse from the UM3/S5 cam. It has to run on your computer and only takes screenshots of the cam at a given interval. When the print is finished the script merges the pictures to a time-lapse video. Works well.

 

If you are interested, search here in the forum for timelapse, there is a thread with installation instructions.

 

But of course, you should have a stable network connection to your printer.
