I took inspiration from raster's original design, but added traps to lock the camera in place. Also added some lens protection, in case the thing falls over.
Also, check out my lens cap for this camera: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:39880


Insert the frame and the stay into the mount.
Make sure the stay is pressed up against the bottom of the camera, to secure it in place.
might also be a good idea to line the inside of the frame with electrical tape, for scuff protection and additional "staying power"

This is awesome. the round bits to keep the lens from getting scratched is brilliant. the best of both worlds much cleared video without a housing and some lens protection. Great work sir.

A guy on shapeways is trying to sell this design search his user name "next copter or do a search for your own description

I greatly appreciate you letting me know about this. I've contacted the seller on Shapeways.

thanks! downloaded and printed it for my friends to thank them for filming a commercial for me :-) idea for others: i added their company's logo to the top and sides to make it a more personal gift

Nice! I've been meaning to print the lens cap... I'll print this version of the frame as well now. :)

Excellent. Thanks for doing this in SCAD and posting the source. Always helpful.
