So I'm using Cura with an Anycubic i3, I have it connected to OctoPrint primarily for the webcam access, and the ability to stop the print if something goes wrong....Octo has been giving me a lot of issues, so I was wondering if there was webcam support in Cura for non-Ultimaker Printers?

    That script adds commands in the gcode to trigger a camera, if the printer firmware and hardware support that. It does not handle displaying the snapshots in any way.

    I use Octo, it's just problematic right now.

     

    There's a great OctoPrint community here:

    https://community.octoprint.org/

    I'm sure they can help you out.

    Octoprint itself works fine, so I suggest to solve your Octo problem with their community first and then install the amazing Octoprint plugin for Cura.

     

    I have 3 printers running with Octoprint and Cura plugin and it works great. 
     

    BTW thanks again @ahoeben for the great plugin 👍🏻
