REQUEST : Time Lapse / Camera for Mac

Recommended Posts

As the title suggests...

I can run the time lapse option from parallels in mac, but its a huge drain on the system resources running windows also...

When i run cura from mac directly i don't see a camera option with my macbook pro's built in camera as well as my Microsoft HD-3000 usb cam.

can this be added to cura please

The problem is that I do not have an easy to use library to access camera's on the Mac. The library I have only works on windows, which is why Webcam functions are limited to windows right now.

It's a shame, I know. But little I can do about it right now.

oh ok not a massive problem... on a mac/laptop with built in cams - you can't exactly 'wedge' the whole laptop up against the side of a ultimaker haha, so can only be a USB solution only, hopefully this might be something someone will help you with ;-) ill have my fingers crossed

    • "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.
