This is a mount for a Microsoft Lifecam VX-7000 to be attached to the top of a Replicator 2 in order to watch your prints remotely, it will probably work with a lot of other webcams I just designed it to specifically fit this one that I had. I have included the sketchup file in case you wanted to just change the size of the top part around a bit to make it fit your webcam of choice. The Lifecam actually fit the Rep2 perfectly without any sort of mount but I was a bit concerned it might get in the way with the amount it hung over the edge, it probably never would have been a problem but just in case I figured I would mount it up on this out of the way. Hooked it up to a Raspberry Pi with some webcam server software and bam, remote printer viewing from anywhere. It's a really simply model obviously but its my first one that is actually of any sort of real use so I am happy with it.


This one was printed out on MakerWare's default Low setting, layer height .34. It works fine like this but I am sure it would print out fine on a myriad of other settings. Like I said, its not a complicated model.
