We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
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.
Fits any Lulzbot AO-100 and AO-101 as well MendelMax derivatives that use 20mm extrusions with a base that has an gap of 30mm between the bottom rails.
*You will need to print out some feet to raise up your printer as the clip slightly raises the front of the printer.
** You will need a minimum bed of 200mm x 200mm x 30mm to print this object.
