Hinged Webcam Mount for Makerbot 2X (For Lifecam HD-6000) by zorlack Sep 30, 2013


We setup a UStream for our Makerbot and wanted a way to hold the camera in-place (which didn't involve scotch tape.)

We came up with this [hinged mount!](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6n45TAcExsk)

The mount is designed to fit a [Microsoft Lifecam HD-6000](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00465SJMQ/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00465SJMQ&linkCode=as2&tag=zorlackcom-20) (around $20 on Amazon). The mount press-fits onto the hex bolt above the door of the Makerbot and is hinged so that the camera doesn't obstruct the operation of the door.
