triggering camera from gcode
June 26, 2018 10:21PM
I'm new to pronterface. I have an Arduino based 3d-printer. I want to add a camera to be triggered by every new layer. If I install pronterface on my pc. I'm wondering if this can be done in pronterface?

What kind of camera?
Can it be remote triggered?

I suppose you would have to look for change in Z in g-code

May have to get slicer to insert command in g-code output
to indicate "new layer" then trigger macro

I don't use pronterface -- old CAM
Repetier with Slicr or cura much better

Just capture all of it with usb Cam and edit it
or use motion trigger available in some cam software

pronterface just calls slicer...

... with a camera with a "snap-button" you could connect to and address the button with e.g. M42-code (set and release a pin) to activate an output pin ...
