    Has anyone used some kind of camera monitor for laser etching/cutting?

    I'm considering eye protection and am thinking about completely enclosing the machine, using a small camera to watch the progress.

    Theres a bunch of software that will do that - Octoprint, Chilipeppr, etc. and handle your Gcode at the same time.


    A Raspberry Pi and its associated camera will set you back ~$50 and make it child's play, as well as give you a great toolchain to production flow.
