Remote hardware and app questions

Recommended Posts

I am using an UM1 and tried this two weeks ago but haven't got this to work yet.

Here is what I have found for my UM-1:

You will need a Computer running a some host software like OctoPrint or Pronterface (Cura can also act as a host but doesn't support Webinterface as far as i know).

A friend of mine is using a small webcam connected to a RasPi that runs Octoprint. Seems to work pretty well.

I intend to use a RasPi too, but just want to install a software that allows Videostreaming and connect to the Pi via SSH and use Cura as host. But i haven't yet got this to work because i have bad wifi-connectivity in my lab

I use it in combination with a good webcam (Logitech C920, Full HD quality) and have Skype set up to auto answer. It works pretty well.

I would like a wireless remote controlled motorised pan and tilt camera with the same resolution but I think it would be extremely expensive...so the Logitech is good value.

    • "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.
