Arducam Pi Camera for Octoprint Octopi Webcam with Motorized Lens, Adjustable Focal Length for Monitoring 3D Printer, 3.28FT/100CM Long Extension Flex Ribbon Cable for Raspberry Pi

  • Native to Raspberry Pi: No need to install additional driver
  • Support lastest Raspberry Pi OS and libcamera apps
  • Motorized Focus: Allows you get the sharper and closer image


Most 3D models take more than a few hours to print, so you may wish to leave the 3D printer at some point in the printing process. Using an Arducam camera to monitor 3D printing can make you pay close attention to your creation. Since most cameras are not made specifically for the use of 3D printing software, it is impossible to obtain proper support from the manufacturer. Fortunately, Arducam can help you solve all installation and setup problems.

  • IoT cameras
  • OctoPrint, Monitoring 3D Printer
  • Robot cameras
  • Wildlife cameras
  • Other battery-powered products
  • Can be used in MCU, Raspberry Pi, ARM, DSP, FPGA platforms


  • Hassle Free: Works as a native Raspberry Pi camera on Raspberry Pi 4/3B+/3 and more, and Arducam has solved the problems with the installation and setup on OctoPi.
  • Motorized Focus: See closer and easier than the fixed focus (1 m to infinity) lens, the minimum focal length is about 5CM, which is better to monitor the 3D printer nozzle and make you pay close attention to your creation.
  • Focus Controllable: A camera focus control plugin has been developed to control an Arducam motorized focus camera using the OctoPrint Control tab, which utilizes custom commands from your slicer to adjust focus while printing.
  • A Long Cable: 100cm/3.28ft extension cable included, long enough for mounting the camera, especially useful when you don’t want to place the camera near the Raspberry Pi.
