    Hi, I am fairly experienced with 3d printing but I have never ventured into the Octoprint area of 3d printing. I recently found out that the software to run the printer using the hotspot was Octoprint. So what I plan to do is set up some cameras along with the Octolapse plugin to make the smooth time-lapses. I was wondering if anyone has done this before and is kind enough to be willing to guide me through this :) All advice and tips are appreciated!

    Doesn't the C2 already have a camera? The R2 does.

    No, but I added it.

    I have used the timelaose a couple of times, but I did nothing special to configure it (I did not add a plugin, I used the one Robo already had installed on "RoboOS"/OctoPi)

    Once the camera is installed / cabled into the RPi, you will have to log into OctoPrint and manually start / stop the video streaming. The OctoPrint home page has a menu for setting up the time-lapse parameters. That menu gets disabled while you are streaming video.
