For S3D if it's an important job I measure the print with this http://www.gcodeanalyser.com/ is very accurate also

I'm really enjoying Octoprint and Cura....and uploading for my S3D stuff.

I still need to tweak my timelapse settings on the camera. They run a bit long (which you can easily speed up in a video editor). The camera wanders on it's autofocus. Sometimes locking onto the print head, object printed or beyond. I do like the setup I printed, as having the camera above the printer didn't work well....the rods were always in the way!

Once done, put the bar into each rail, then the printer!

I found using a small clamp works awesome securing the camera (Logitech 615) I can shove the camera forward a bit so you don't see the belts/rod in the picture. Helps with the auto focus
