GoPro Camera 3 point suction cup mount. Hood mount
by tmorris9, published
I want to be able to put my GoPro Hero on the hood of my car so I can video without seeing my dash, dirty windshield & hood.
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.

I printed with support just so the holes would not close over, still had to file them just a little.
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.
