Aluminum Casting X-Y Axis Acme Nut Trap from 3D printed models.

I have been playing with this for a couple days on my pcduino3.  Installed it about 5 times,  always following the insteuctions exactly.  It always came back with "error 404, file not found" when trying to view it from a local browser.  
Not sure if anyone had problems with it,  but I did find a fix that works with these instructions. http://learn.linksprite.com/pcduino/install-mjpg-streamer-pcduino/  In the instructions,  the "DESTDIR = /usr"  but in the startup command it list "/var/www/mjpg_streamer" the fix was to change it to "/usr/www" and it starts right up. Change the startup command from: 

mjpg_streamer -i "/usr/lib/input_uvc.so -d /dev/video0  -y -r 320x240 -f 10"-o "/usr/lib/output_http.so -p 8090 -w /var/www/mjpg_streamer"

to this:

mjpg_streamer -i "/usr/lib/input_uvc.so -d /dev/video0  -y -r 320x240 -f 10"-o "/usr/lib/output_http.so -p 8090 -w /usr/www/"
