IP camera for 3d printer

Cam_real To check whether my 3d-prints are printing fine, I bought a cheap IP-Camera module from Banggood. I designed a housing for it in Fusion 360. I also bough a power module from e-bay to stabilize and control the power. I used an old adapter (9V, 500mA) to power everything.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fusion IPcam1Starting with the purple module for the camera in Fusion 360. Here you see one side. In the small hole I glued with epoxy a bolt (M3 on both sides) so the camera can be adjusted in height. Fusion IPcam2

 

 

The purple module can pivot in the light blue housing. The big hole is your the small camera which is connected with a ribbon-cable to the electronics.

Fusion IPcam6The grey part is made with the loft function in Fusion 360 to convert the square form to a circle. The grew part can rotate over the brownish/ orange box and can be locked with small (M2) screws from the side. The box acts as the base with the power module screwed in.

 

 

 

 

PowerSupplyThe power module can be adjusted. I tried various voltages and used 4.5 Volts.
