    Add a (RasPi?) Cam to a Cube3?

    I'm planning to add one for remote monitoring. My target would be cheap, a RaspiZero and its camera module should be enough.

    Question is: which would you consider the best placement?

    Central hole as seen from above seems a good spot, wdy think? Enough to know if a print is failing?

    I was thinking about this and had a thought. If your cube cartridges are mod'd so they no longer use the plastic trackway that stock cartridge have to use, then you could cut out a hole on the bottom of the upper plastic part and mount the camera there. And have the pi mounted somewhere on the top of the cube. I don't think there's anything running through the back part if it if the cartridge line isn't running in there.

    You mean the OUTER plastic cart part? or the spool inside a cart? Not sure if I follow your design idea anyway, but sounds interesting!

    Nice webcam Abraham

    This is something I really struggle with on the cube 3... it is a time when extrusion hesitates.
    It is mostly related to highly dithered staking. Honeycomb has really caused issues for me.

    Also, the thin section that is delaminating, put some very small cross holes in there. That will hold the layers together.

    That fault is because I put the Cube 3 paused, at night, because it makes a lot of noise and does not let sleep, in the morning I started it again.

    WAY COOL!...
    I use to race 4wd off-road 10th scale RC in my younger days.

    I've done the restart a number of times and I get a pretty good re-start.
    I get that pattern when it is done filling the solid on the floor and it starts dithering the fill. This is when the next couple of layers will have these voids.

    This problem is due to the fattening of the filament because the melt has reached up higher in the nozzle (de-string function bringing the heat up higher in the plastic tube).
