Looks great. I haven't been using Octoprint for a while, because I get random communications errors which stop the print midway through.
Is this something you have suffered too?

I've had a few issues with comms but never during a print. On one printer I get a comms error if I prematurely stop/cancel the print
I think the comms issue occurs for quite a few people from what I've heard on the forums etc. I know the developer was addressing some issues but to be honest, I haven't really had time to read thru the history on the google plus group yet.
When I have a system working I definitely don't do the "online" upgrade. That has cost me quite a few hours of frustration
On the Prusa Mk2 that this bracket is made for I'm running 1.3.4 master branch and that works fine so far

Appreciate your input Phil, thank you so much

You're welcome. I was a bit skeptical about using the Pi Zero W but i now have 2 that work fine with Octoprint 1.3.4 They are quite a bit cheaper than a Pi3.
I haven't yet tried a Pi or USB camera, but I have no reason to doubt that will work. ( famous last words)

I do plan to give the zero a try some time, but for now I use a Pi3 over USB to my MK2. Which worked perfectly until I updated it to the latest version. That was a couple of versions ago.
When the latest version was released I thought it would fix it, but no.
Perhaps it's time to a complete wipe of OctoPi and start again, maybe with a new SD card while I'm at it.
I'll give it a go when I get time.
I don't use video on my Pi, mainly because I don't know how :-)
