Looking to build an enclosure for my LM3 (850mm x 400mm), so wanting to get a decent camera.
Obviously don’t want to be limited in accuracy by resolution and a lot of posts seem to be pointing to the 16mb Arducam as a top end option, eg:
However the Lightburn software seems to be a bit limited in that the distance calculator only allows for lower res cameras (eg 5mp or 8mp) to calculate the right distance.
So I guess question 1:
Is it worth the 8mp to 16mp upgrade? I want to be able to precisely align things on my bed, so don’t want blurry pixels to be a problem.
How can I calculate the right height for the 16mp camera and my bed? (I’ll need to order off Aliexpress, so if I know the correct height, I can build the enclosure while I wait a few weeks for delivery)
