Camera Mount for MendelMax

Camera Mount for MendelMax by TheMakersWorkbench Feb 21, 2013

Description

I had issues with my mini tripod and LifeCam Studio when recording or streaming prints. So I designed a mount that held the camera at the popper height, and synced the printer's vibrations with the camera. The result was a much more steady video of the print and I did not have to worry about the webcam and tripod "walking" from the viberations

I use a binder clip to hold my LifeCam Studio onto the mount but I left enough room that a 1/4" hole could be drilled for a 1/4"-20 bolt that will allow almost any camera with a tripod mounting hole to be affixed.

I have also included the .skp file if anyone wants to modify this.

You could print this out, drill a hole and mount it to the Mendel Max camera mount, or you could design the GP mount into the MM mount. Maybe I can try this over the next few days. Here is the mount I mentioned. thingiverse.com/thing:63134
Any idea how easy it would be to connect a GoPro Hero 2?
Or potentially check on the progress of the print from a "remote" location/room.
