We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is a flexible library for GoPro mounts. I made it also customizer-friendly so you can design your very own mount and print it directly.
Of course you'll get the basic 2- and 3-arm mounts (to build upon), but it also features useful extensions such as handlebar / seat post / threaded rod mounts and options. Check the pictures and the customizer!
Use the customizer to bulid your own set of mount if you find what you need... else you may ask, or look at the OpenScad module that was designed to be included in your own designs.
One of the attached images explains most of the settings. The current options are:
I will probably add extensions with time so following this object is the way to go if you need to know when. Feel free to ask for some more, so I can include them here. Planned are regular camera screw mount and flash mount.
The naked 2- and 3-arm mounts are useful to protect your existing bits while they are not used. Just mount them so you can leave a screwed bolt without either losing the nut nor breaking an arm as I did more than once.
I tried to fine-tune the gopro 2- and 3-arm mounts as some other designs were a bit fuzzy on this. Still, you can fine tune the values if you really want or need it in the last tab of the customizer.
