use of the camera

Posted · use of the camera

Hello there!

I am using an Ultimaker S5. My question is: Is it possible to use the webcam at the Ultimaker S5 as a camera for timelapses. When I can use the webcam es a camera for timelapses, how do I do that?

    Sure. But you need external software to do so. Typically, timelapse recording software that works with "ip cameras" or "network cameras" works with the camera in your UM S5, as long as the computer running that software is on the same network as the printer. You would use an address like this:



    You would have to look up the ip address of your UM S5 printer on the network.
