GoPro Camera 3 point suction cup mount. Hood mount
by tmorris9, published
I just bought my $300 camera and just don't trust their $30 suction mount for this. So I bought 3 RAM suction cups (super strong and reliable) and created a triangle plate to mount them as one.
This way, up to 2 can fail and I won't lose my camera. I would feel safe with this rig driving cross country at freeway speeds.
On my first version I made the mount in the center and low. Turns out it was impossible to attach the knob and the mount was always visible in the lens. I did use a few extensions to make it work but I knew I could do better.
So my second version (this one) addresses this by raising the mount up off the triangle and placing it at the edge. It works great.

A car hood should not get that hot. If they did the paint would bubble.
True if you left this outdoors on your hood in a hot area (like Arizona) for many months it could get damaged but for our use it's highly unlikely.
Also you could put it on your door, or roof of the car.

I printed with 4 solid layers and 4 perimeters and 50% infill. This makes the mounting holes and finger mounts pretty much solid and plenty strong without going solid infill. I still went 50% to make sure it was very strong yet slightly flexible to fit a curved hood.
