I added a remix for this particular camera mount allowing for a Wyze camera to be used. Hope it works out for someone other than just me!

Few things I noticed after printing:

  1. The small screw (the one with the "flower" top) has broken off 3 times, once because I was tightening it to fast but the other two times I really don't know what happened.
  2. The big screw doesnt fit the building plate connector at all, Tried to bruteforce it in and cut my finger,

problem 1 isn't that big of a deal but the second point really hurt my hands because there is nothing to hold it with when bruteforcing it in.
I will see if I can fix problem two by remaking the screw and by adding a flathead screwdriver hole in the hollow space. That way you can use a screwdriver

I've added the TinkerCAD link to the project so you can remix it right from there.

Im with ya, no screws are even close to fitting for me. So bummed.

I've uploaded a new version, will much less aggressive screw and it should fit a lot better now.

The mount that goes under the bed is what I'm having trouble with. seems like the hole is too small.

Ive made a version that only uses the tiny screw, I havent uploaded it yet because Im really busy lately. Will do it this weekend if I dont forget

Sorry to hear that it was hard on your fingers. I could perhaps shrink the threaded part by 5%.

I just got this printer, and this mount looks like exactly what I want, but I'm having a hard time finding information about how to set up a camera to work with polar cloud. Would you mind pointing me in the right direction?

Alternatively, 3D Printer OS has integrated camera functionality with all Flashforge Models.

The only way I know how to get a third party camera to work with Polar Cloud is to do it through OctoPrint.

There is a guide on how to do that here:

Heck this might have been the camera mount I've been looking for! Everything else always requires you to disassemble a Webcam to attach it.... While this just let's ya plop it down!

Yep, pretty simple and easy.

If that isn't a 3D printer taking a selfie, nothing is.

Haha. Someone had to do it.
