IP Camera mount for ultimaker

Recommended Posts

Brilliant.

Now...

- Add a bit of motion detection software.

- Add algorithm that knows approximately where extruder is/isn't in frame (alternatively, key it off the color of the consumable).

- Automatically stop print if the big blobby thing at the bottom of the frame moves suddenly (i.e. basic motion detection on partial frame).

Result?

Automatically pause/stop printing if the print head (or your cat) knocks the piece out of place during the print, saving both consumables, potential damage, and lessening a mess to cleanup later.

BTW: D-Link's DCS-930L is available for $70 from Amazon. Supports 802.11*, hardwired ethernet, and is fully Mac / PC / Linux(pretty sure) compatible.

b.bum

(Who is patiently waiting for his Ultimaker and... oops, couldn't resist... printrbot in the new year.)

    • "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.
