If you're familiar with 3D printing, then you must've heard of Octoprint. Octoprint takes your raspberry pi and creates a local server for your printer so you can print from any web browser. You can also hook up a camera so you can see your print from anywhere. I am not going to show you how to setup because there amazing tutorial out on youtube. I used a raspberry pi 3, raspberry pi camera, sd card, micro usb cable and wifi dongle to complete this project.

For the case, I needed something mounted on the bed because the camera cable is short and the camera needs to be mounted on the bed.
