Using the excellent Tinkercad file by Physics Dude that this thing is derived from, it seemed like the perfect platform to attach a webcam to.
I simply erased the unnecessary tool holder parts and put a tripod mount hole in the middle.
I also made a larger platform that can move the camera further away from the print area if your webcam requires that or so you have a bigger surface to clamp just about anything onto.
I have a Microsoft LifeCam that has a tripod mount point and used the mounting screw from a gorillapod that I normally use to shoot timelapses or simply remotely monitor the printer with.
Feel free to adjust as necessary by making a copy in Tinkercad:
Printed at 25% infill, 0.28 layer height on a ToM with a Mk6 & HBP.
