WIP: Raspberry Pi Zero W and CSI Camera v1.3 heated bed mount for AM8 and other variants.
The design is now printable and tested and is use on my own printer, it can be considered a completed design until further additions are made.
26 Dec 17 - Octopi installed, images updated guides updated.
25 Dec 17 - It was christmas, too full and drunk for thingiverse!
24 Dec 17 - Wiring made, mounted and powers on.
22 Dec 17 - Pi Mount test print, adjustment of dimensions, adjusted design, re-uploaded.
21 Dec 17 - Added Pi Mount Design, not printed yet.
19 Dec 17 (2) - Second print along with test fit, adjustment to dimensions, re-uploaded, guide added.
19 Dec 17 - First print, adjustment to dimensions, re-uploaded, images added.
18 Dec 17 - Initial Upload.

Camera mount: 25%
Camera swivel: 50%+
Camera plate: 50%+
Pi Mount: 25%
Camera mount assembly:
Firstly, attach the camera swivel to the heated bed mount using the M3X20mm bolt, through both parts, into the nut captured inside the heated bed mount.
Secondly, attach the camera plate to the camera swivel, using the M3X30mm bolt, into the m3 nut captured on the other side. The fit for the nut is tight, if you have difficulty making it fit, try heating the nut with a lighter then inserting it.
Thirdly, attach the ribbon cable to the camera, insert through the slot in the camera plate and press fit the camera onto the posts.
Lastly, remove the heated bed and attach the mount to the "H" Bed using the pre existing 4mm bolts.
Pi mount assembly:
Insert 4x 3mm nuts into the base of pi mount, use a lighter to heat the nuts to make fitment easy and tight.
Insert 2xM5x8mm through the remaining holes on the mount and loosely threat the M5 T-Nuts onto it.
Insert 4x M3X30mm Nuts through the raspberry pi, this will be a tight fit.
Insert the spacers onto the nuts, with the cut outs facing inwards and away from the Pi.
Clip the 12v to 5v converter to the Pi mount.
You can now place the Pi and spacers, over the converter and into the mount.
This is mostly optional, the same can be achieved using adaptors and wall plugs, although I wanted an integrated and semi-permanent solution.
Cut and splice USB B and USB Micro cables and solder 4 internal wires together, ensuring they're insulated from each other.
Solder the 5v 3a positive (red) to GPIO pin 4 on the Raspberry Pi and the negative (black) to GPIO pin 6.
Extend the yellow wire (positive) and use a fork terminal to attach to a spare 12v positive slot on the PSU, extend the black wire and again with a fork terminal attach to a 12v negative slot on the PSU.
Insert the camera cable into the ribbon slot.
