Yes, exactly. I want it to check for defects in each layer. Do you recommend specific resolution and a specific camera?
And how do you plan to detect the finish (or start) of a layer?
I use Slic3r to make my GCode files and it has the option to add some user GCode between layers. I have not considered how that might be physically translated into a command for a camera....R
Sorry, I have no idea what would be suitable for that.My guess is that if you want to use a PC program to analyse the images for defects then you should choose the PC software and get a camera that it can work with.If my cheap 3D printer is typical I think it would be very difficult to get an image of a complete layer with a single camera....R
Since I need 2D images, one Camera is needed.
I'm a bit new to Arduino. Are there Cameras that come with Arduino? Which ones would you recommend?
How will it be able to see the complete layer? The print-head will obscure most of it.An Arduino does not have the memory capacity or speed to work with images. It could be used to cause a camera to take a picture but it could not process the picture....R
I want the camera to be triggered by arduino in every new layer to take a reasonably clear picture and save the pictures (maybe on the PC directly).
