3D printing is a long and involved process, but when you combine it with time-lapse videos it allows you to showcase the production in an entirely different light.
Doing so with Prusa printers can be difficult due to the moving heatbed, and while Prusa themselves wrote a tutorial on how to accomplish it, the process requires a camera, separate trigger input, or an expensive Bluetooth board and your smartphone, none of which are ideal.
If you have a GoPro hanging around, this time-lapse trigger offers a wireless solution that doesn’t require any modifications to your printer. The PCB plugs directly into the Einsy board and uses WiFi to communicate with your GoPro.
Each purchase also comes with a 3D-printed bracket, made in Prusa’s original Black PETG materials to ensure proper heat resilience from the Einsy board. That, and it makes everything look uniform as well.
The trigger board works with all Prusa 3D printers that have Raspi support and with GoPro versions 4 and higher, including the Session versions.
You can use it with other 3D printers as well, so long as you have a 5V/GND and 1 GPIO available for programming. A manual is also offered on the store page to pair your GoPro with your printer. Check out the video below to see an example time-lapse.
