I figured out how to use iPhone for High Quality Octolapse videos

I know videos from WildRoseBuilds have these really cool mesmerizing timelapse of 3d prints but all the solution I'ved found requires some amount of modifying your printer to trigger a shutter switch on a DSLR. The issue with this for me is that:

  1. DSLRs are expensive
  2. It's a lot of work to get a shutter trigger mechanism on 3D printers.

So I made my own solution using iOS camera app (Network Camera Snapshot). Here is a youtube tutorial detailing how to do it.
