With the ability to print the GorillaPod links, makers can use this technology for anything requiring a flexible mount.

After a pass through netfabb to close up the holes, and flip all the normals, I made two of these. It's a good idea, but the base is too tight, it needs to be opened up a little to allow for tolerance. I snapped both pieces trying to fit them together.
I'd provide my repaired STL, but the license is all rights reserved so I can't use the "I Made One" function or remix it.
Nice one! Thanks. Although I would inverse the base (with the 3 balls) to hollow cups where the ball clicks into. That creates more space and is less fragile.

I don't have a 3D printer, so I haven't been able to physically experiment with this design. I'm not sure how well the joints will come together and how much friction there will be when they are together. One idea to maintain friction in the joints is to use the rubberized tool handle coating when assembling the links.
If anyone prints out these designs, I would love to hear how it went.
