PRODUCT DETAILS

Mintion Nozzle Camera (NZC) is specially designed with an auto-focus lens and two pieces of LEDs to observe the first layer printing for 3d printing. With this small tool, it will be helpful to understand how the filament is flowing, layer adhesion, and extrusion diagnosis. Cooperating with Obico, a well-known smart AI detection provider in the 3d printing industry, this nozzle camera will make it much easier to access Obico's First Layer AI Detection to have smart detection for your 3d printer. (The USB cable is included.) 

We have designed two camera holders for Prusa i3 MK3S+ and Voron StealthBurner, which you can download from Printables.com directly.  

Note: Mintion Nozzle camera is not a standalone product, if your printer is a Marlin system, then you need a Raspberry PI to run on Octoprint to use; if your printer is a Klipper system, then you can plug & play to use.

FAQs

Why do we make Mintion Nozzle Camera?
The Mintion Nozzle Camera (NZC) isn’t the first nozzle camera out there. We were inspired by other nozzle cameras out there such as the 3DO nozzle camera, but after trying it we found ways it could be improved such as incorporating lights, adding auto focus, etc… so we decided to create a nozzle camera of our own and easier to approach. Considering the first layer observation, we combined with Obico First Layer AI Detection for a different smart monitoring on 3d printing.
What printer should I use for this nozzle camera?
Mintion Nozzle camera is not a standalone product, if your printer is a Marlin system, then you need a Raspberry PI to run on Octoprint to use; if your printer is a Klipper system, then you can plug & play to use.
How shall I install the camera to my printer?
This camera is integrated with LEDs near the sensor and plug-and-play. We have designed some holders for this camera, such as Voron Stealthburner extruder, Prusa i3 MK3S+ extruder, etc.

You can print the holder and screw the holder onto the hotend, and connect the USB to the Raspberry Pi board (Marlin) or Mainboard USB socket (Klipper), then the nozzle angle video feed will be shown.
Why it's only in 1080P resolution, not to 4K Resolution?
For video straming, the 1080P@30fps is enough, because the nozzle camera view scence is narrow and small, there's no big difference bewteen 1080P and 4K resolution;

Secondly, the Raspberry Pi chipset is built with limited resource on handling with MJPEG video streaming, higher resolution means more exhaustion for chipset resources. 1080P resolution is almost the maximun it can handle with.

Finally, for First Layer AI Detection by Obico, 1080P image is enough to deal with; 4K resolution image maybe affected by network bandwith.
How can I get the notification when it detected?
You can install the Obico app to obtain the message push or the email for notification.
How long do we have the Obico AI First Layer Detection subscription?
In default, each Mintion Nozzle Camera will have THREE Months subscription of Obico First Layer AI Detection service for FREE. You will get the code from us to subscribe on Obico.

Minton Nozzle Camera on Prusa Mini +

I am very pleased with my tiny Nozzle camera. Found a bracket on Prusa models print web site designed by Neil. Had to alter it a little to fit my fan that it clips on to. Also used a cheap WiFi enderscope unit and app to send picture to iPhone. Works very well with clear picture/video

Easy install narrow focus

Easy to install and setup.
I find the images from the ai snapshot often blurry (probably motion) happy with the product.

Good cam, when it works.

I am part of the Obico training, and am using this camera on a StealthBurner cover. The cam is currently experiencing some issues, but when it was working… it was great. According to Mintion support, the camera is having signal/interference issues.
Low points: The cam doesn’t have a guide for V4L2-CTL commands that are defined. My cam video out of the box was very dark and grainy, and required hours of trial and error to get the undefined settings tuned for good clear video. A wiki/github guide with defined commands would have helped greatly.
The onboard LED’s aren’t controllable, or at least Mintion doesn’t tell you how. This would be nice to get some dimming, as my E3Dv6 blue sock is causing some light exposure problems due to being closer to the light source.
The lack of setup guides for klipper/crowsnest is a pain too, it again took hours of trial and error to find the best resolution and streamer protocol to get more than 1-2 FPS to stream.
———
Pros: if you have a smaller heat block, or the option to mount this further away, it’s crisp and clear with a good internet connection.
The LED’s built in are a big upgrade compared to the similar 3DO cam offering. Plenty of FPC ribbon to reach where you want to install it.

Good quality and great service

First camera arrived damaged and would not power on, emailed support with pictures of damaged circuit board and they promptly shipped a replacement unit. Modified the USB cBle slightly for install on Prusa printer. After using for a month I am very happy with the product. I would recommend to anyone looking for a nozzle camera and the built in lighting works great.
