Camera settings in Cura?

Recommended Posts


I'm ordering an Ultimaker 2 on Monday, so I thought I'd get a leg up and try out Cura on my printrbot plus. So far so good! I like it!

It seems to always turn on my camera on my laptop, whether or not I have timelapse enabled, and also, I'd like to use a different camera (e.g one I can actually point at the printer) Is there an easy (or hard) way to do this?

It's was a known bug that the camera gets turned on at start up, as a way to check if there is one present, and then under some (all?) circumstances it doesn't get turned off. But it was supposed to have been fixed I thought. Hopefully Daid, the developer of Cura, will respond here after the holidays.

Don't know much about the external cam support - the webcam feature is a Windows only thing at this point, and I use a Mac.

    • "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.
