A very cheap way for monitoring your printer from everywhere

Recommended Posts

Use your old phone as a IP WEBCAM.

Do not expend more money on a IP webcam. Your phone do the same. This is my printer.

There some free software for converting your phone in a Webcam. I am using this one:

You need to configure your router to see the video from outside your network. You have to forward the port that the phone is employing.

    • "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.
