UM2 Fan Shroud Nozzle Cam - Endoscope / Otoscope Search

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2 Fan Shroud Nozzle Cam - Endoscope / Otoscope Search


First time posting. I designed a nozzle-cam fan shroud for my UM2 extended but am having trouble with the endoscope focusing on the nozzle due to the focal distance.

Design can be found here, pictures should be attached.



The design mounts the 8mm soft cable endoscope around 25-30mm away from the nozzle, but the only endoscopes I can find have a focal distance of around 60-100mm.  Even at that distance I had to decrease the build volume around 20mm or so, so the end of the camera wouldn't collide with the interior walls of the printer.


Does anyone know of an endoscope with the same sorta size package as the one shown / linked below that has a shorter focal distance?


I know there are some otoscopes, or an ear endoscope, but they all seem to come with a 200mm pole, not really suitable for my design.

& not really looking to rip apart the endoscope if I don't have to.


Figured i'd make my first post and ask the community.

I've uploaded a few video's to my website if you'd like to see it in action, besides the blur, its pretty cool!


lmk what you think!



(Note: the design was based off a fan shroud I found I think on this forum, & think it was originally designed by @Labern)

    • 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
