This is a camera mount that affixes to the unused screw posts on the upper left hand front of the inside of the Flashforge Dreamer / Dremel Idea Builder. It's specifically made for the ELP 2.1mm wide angle 5 megapixel USB camera model ELP-USB500W02M-L21, though it should fit other similar cameras as well.

Went through 5 iterations of this to get it up and angled so you can see both the print head AND the full platform at max extension, without it interfering with the print head. Capture shot included, as well as some shots showing how it fits inside the printer.

i received the camera, do you need driver? what program you use to see it ?


In my case, I have a USB cam plugged into my Mac. No drivers in that case. For the Pi cam, depends on what distribution you're running. I think Raspbian includes it by default, but you have to enable the driver.

What size screws do you use and could it fit the raspberry pi cam?

For screws, I think I just used some screws that came with the Dreamer. And another user printed this (picture in the 'Made' tab) and mounted a pi cam, so... Yes!
