I’ve just set up a raspberry pi with Octopi to control my new Taz 5, and now I’m looking to put it into a case attached to the machine somehow, with a camera for monitoring progress.
I’ve seen Scuttlebot’s LCD case mod here: https://forum.lulzbot.com/t/taz-lcd-pi-enclosure-mod/2651/1 but I’m wondering if there are other ideas for attaching separate enclosure with a camera to the frame, and what camera suggestions people have. The other cases I saw on Thingiverse appeared to be freestanding boxes, but I may have missed something.
I’m also wondering, for mounting anything, will I need to remove the structural supports from the frame? And will that make it so that I may get the unit’s shape out of true?
Also, I got the Raspberry Pi camera board, but I’m wondering if a USB webcam may be a better option for easy positioning and attaching the camera to the frame, given the short wide ribbon on the Pi Camera.
Anyway, any suggestions are welcome!
