The above video was shot using my LED bar lights, build your own for less than 6 bucks!

Raspberry Pi case with camera case and adjustable mount. Links can be added to the camera mount arm to extend it as desired. The case includes mount holes and boss for attached directly to Open Beam OB1515 extrusion material.

Designed for use with OctoPi (OctoPrint), recommend using the new quad core Raspberry Pi 2 board, B+ board will also fit in this case.

Print with no support, 15% infill, PLA or ABS. Threaded holes: drill 2.5mm / tap M3. Screw clearance holes: drill 3.0 to 3.3mm diameter.

The Raspberry Pi camera does have a factory preset focus distance that is not optimized for this application. A more macro focus can be achieved by simply turning the camera lens 1/3 to 3/4 turn CCW. Note that these lens are glued in position at factory, a small exacto knife using magnification can help release the glue, or just brute force turning with quality needle nose pliers can get it done - just be careful.

Optional: mount camera directly on print bed, with RPi case or separate with long cable see photo.

This is an awesome part, that's made a bit more frustrating by having to drill out holes and take off baked in supports. Can you please release a version without the included support material?

you are in luck ... just had those files open for another project .. made all or most of the changes you suggested, just uploaded new files.

This is awesome! But is it possible to ask for individual part files so I don't have to print the whole thing?

Very nice design.
Everything fits and are of perfect size and have nice details, very impressive.
Thank you for sharing.
