    Be sure to check out the excellent, detailed Pi camera installation instructions by OutsourceGuru under the Mods and Upgrades section.

    If anyone wants to see it, heres my steps for getting the webcam setup:
    Connect your webcam to the printer via usb
    Connect to the printer with Putty (connect to printer ip with port 22)
    Run "lsusb" and make sure your webcam shows up.
    cd to "/mjpg-streamer/mjpg-streamer-experimental" ("cd /home/pi//mjpg-streamer/mjpg-streamer-experimental")
    run "sh start.sh"
    The mjpg-streamer server is now up and you can go to it with serverip:8080, serverip being the ip of your printer

    Extra:
    WheresWaldo said the ssh username and password (username: pi | password: raspberry)
    Closing the ssh window will stop the server, so only close it while it's not recording.

    You can actually add those commands to /home/pi/.octoprint/config.yaml. The OctoPrint wiki has instructions. That way you can start the webcam server directly from the OctoPrint interface via browser.

    @STEM_Steve Is there any way to break the parts into 2 models? Seems like it's too big to print on a C2 with both but would fit with each separated?
