Support for time lapse recording of prints

Postby JetForMe » Tue Jan 12, 2021 9:01 am

Have you ever seen those timelapse videos of 3D prints where you never see the print head? It would be very cool if I could record those with the Raise 3D Pro 2. I think, to do this, I need to be able to move the head out of the way and send a signal to an external camera on each layer.

Since there's no external electrical I/O from the printer's controller, probably the only option would be to make an HTTP request. Moving the print head out of the way can probably be programmed into the layer-change g-code in IdeaMaker, but I don't think there's any way to, say, run a Python script from g-code, is there?

Anyway, this would be very cool.

Thanks for your suggestions!
We will add this feature into developing list. We are not sure whether it will bring any issue to prints at the moment. We will run more tests to make sure it can work with no issue before we release or set it as disabled by default when we have it.
