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.

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