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:


    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 👍🏻

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
