Inspired by the Raspi camera holder for the i3 Mega (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2275881) I designed a holder for my webcam, I use to monitor my prints with OctoPrint. This way the growing of the part in timelapse video is much smoother to view, as if the camera was at a fixed position.

The holder needs no screws and is just clamped to the sheet metal below the print plate.

A demonstration video of the 20 mm hollow calibration cube (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:271736) can be found here: https://youtu.be/Uj4-BXuUzgA)

UPDATE 2017-08-18: After some weeks of used I encounterd a problem with this holder. The plastic deformed a bit and blocked the movement of the heatbed in the most frontal position. I planned a new holder which only clampse on the right side of the sheet metal. Maybe it is enough, if you increase the infill so that the holder does not soften. If I am satisfied with my new design I will upload it here.

UPDATE 2017-09-16: I uploaded a new design (filename: Kamerahalter V3.stl). It now clamps at the side of the sheet metal, so it cannot interfere with the rails, even if the material softens.

after a couple of long prints the clamp became loose and fell down. That was PLA. Ill try ABS and hopefully that does the job

I had a similar issue once. I bent it back with a c-clamp over night. After that it worked fine again.
