This is a 3Dprinted frame i use with my GoPro Hero3 but i´m sure it fits 3+ and 4 aswell. It can easily be opened and closed using a simple snap lock design. It needs to be printed in a somewhat flexible for the concept to work I have printed it in nGen from colorFabb which works and a pre-release PetG from Proto-Pasta. If you successfully print one in other materials let me know.

Great idear... but missing the hole for the second mic on Hero 4

Epic Design Daniel! I'll definitely print a few, this is what The Frame should've been all along!

The original frame is designed and tested to withstand extreme conditions, including drops and the full force of a large wave. If you don't need that then something like this could be just the ticket, but it's important to understand the limitations of a frame like this and the risks (potential to lose your camera if used in an inappropriate situation).

EDIT: Actually this is a Hero 3, so the frame isn't as extreme as I'm saying. That true of the new frames for the waterproof without a housing cameras like the Hero 5 Black and the Sessions.

Ýour right, i do talk about that in the video but i realise most people probably don´t watch that. I will add a short disclaimer to the description, thanks for the heads up! =)

You're welcome. I work for GoPro, and while people having to buy new cameras is good for the company's bottom line, we love our customers and wouldn't want you to lose your cameras.

I feel like this should be a disclaimer added to the thing description. (Not in reply to me though) thanks for typing it all out!

Great work! Would it work for hero 4 ?
