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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
