This bracket is a simple clip together print which allows you to mount your Raspberry Pi camera on your Mendel90 without requiring any screws. The resulting image gives a good view of the extruder.
Unfortunately this was designed for the original Raspberry Pi camera and does not fit the newer versions.
I produced this design to allow people setting up OctoPrint / OctoPi on their Nop Head Mendel 90 to attach the Raspberry Pi camera without having to drill any holes. It gives an excellent view of the extruder in action and requires no additional screws, nuts or bolts.
This design works best when printed in a 0.2mm layer height and personally I used PLA but I would imagine the design is suitable for any material.
I found no support / scaffolding is necessary except for camera_mount_hinge which requires a little support to print the pegs.
The bracket should fit snugly but loose enough to slide up and down on your Mendel without scratching the frame. Once you have found the best viewing position add a tiny amount of blue tack in the gap in the bracket, then when you push it back in place on your Mendel it will stay still.
