    The first thing I did after testing out the C2 is add a RaspberryPi Camera.. It worked well out the gate and now I can "see" what I'm doing while I'm not in the room. It doesn't show up in the App, but I'm sure that will come with time. IMG_7865.JPG

    wow! that's crazy how upgradable that thing is. Looks like you 3D printed the thing. that's great, you might even be ble to make to timelaps prints.

    Here is a view from the webcam. The lights on the right side (looking in) are pretty bright, but I quickly made a cover for those and now the video comes out looking good. This is utilizing the 5MP camera and is a screen grab of the webcam view in OctoPrint.

    If anyone is interested here is the file I used to make the light cover. I dropped the STL directly into OctoPrint and it took about 45 minutes on a "Medium" setting.

    So you just tied it right in with OEM Rapsberry Pi?

    Do you know what the default username and password is to log into the Pi?

    I don't have an iOS device to try the app. Does it ask you to select the R2,C2, or custom profile? Just wondering if selecting the C2 disabled the camera features since one isn't included. I know an R1+ user that added an RPI and camera and it works well with the app with camera function.

    In the old image that used to be on GITHUB I don't think they changed anything from the OctoPi defaults
    • rPi
      • Username: pi
      • Password: raspberry

    What did you do to get it fully working? Just reference for other C2 owners.

    It was actually pretty straight forward.
    • Setup a static IP for the Pi
    • Enable the Webcam on the pi via SSH'ing into the Pi and then run sudo rasp-config
    • Enable the Webcam in the settings on OctoPi (under the ROBO3D Plugin)
    • Start the web stream on OctoPi
    • Make sure that when connecting it to the IOS Application you specify the IP address and NOT the host name because If you utilize the host name it puts an extra "period" in the address.

    The login is the default:... from a mac terminal it would be ssh@[ipaddressofprinter], password is 'raspberry'

    Awesome print and modification, @STEM_Steve! It's great to see people already customizing their C2s.

    Your STL file looks like it's only one piece. Where are the other pieces you used?

    Did you use the stock camera cable, did you have to get a longer one, what path did you route the cable, did you notch out anywhere to gain access the the pi

    Thanks

    That STL file is just a long rectangle looking thing. @STEM_Steve Can you check out if another file is needed and provide it?

    You want to append ".local" to the hostname and then it won't do that.

    Example: If my Robo's name is cute-r2d2 then use cute-r2d2.local as the hostname. The Raspberry Pi 3 will advertise its name via broadcast on the wi-fi network and you can get to it that way, like "ssh pi@cute-r2d2.local" or whatever. Broadcasts come every 60 seconds so it may take that long to see it after a boot.

    The add-a-dot-at-the-end is DNS's way of preventing the addition of domain name suffixes. I can do an "nslookup google.com." (with a period) and the DNS client won't try things like "google.com.mydefaultdomain.com" in its lookups.
