This is a small pan and tilt servo system for the Logitech C600 webcam.
It is designed for two Hitec HS-81 Servos

Wood screws may be useful to hold the 3D printed parts together.


Print and assemble.
Exploded view should show how to assemble it.
Let me know if anything is confusing.

How do the two parts move independently?

I wondered that myself ?%#$%& for a while LOL! upon close examination i finally noticed that the whole thing pivots on the horizontal servo.

How can the camera move?.

That's awesome! What did you print it on, and what is the material?

This was printed on a Stratasys Prodigy Plus, but I think the new uPrint has a better print quality for making robot parts. In two or three I think the RepRap and MakerBot CupCake will be competitive in terms output quality.

It uses Grey ABS, which is the same as shapeways "Grey Robust".
Grey is the best choice because its easier to paint black than white and easier to paint white than black.

I'm not sure what the support material is but it dissolves in sodium hydroxide, which is handy for building overhangs and other strange shapes.

Thanks for the info.
