PS:115 – Creating

Something about creating that makes me feel good. I have been tinkering and getting better at 3D Printing (see Instagram photos to the right) and working up some fun ideas in my head and thus enter Tinkercad to work out an issue.

I wanted to get my Raspberry Pi’s camera mounted better than my current rigged setup of a cut piece of foam, with a twist tie holding the camera to something a bit more, stable. Thus, I searched around hoping maybe someone had fixed my issue, sadly most required M3 screws which I don’t have, and then most are meant to be screwed into the printer. I wanted simple!

Enter this design; it’s simple. Snaps, but had an M3 screw for the bottom, so why not just make an M3 shaped piece (with the proper sizes and all)? Then you just need a good wide base, throw in a space underneath for the camera’s cable, and you’d have a nice movable camera for a time lapse from any side 🙂

Behold, the camera case + a nice stand! Still a prototype at this point, waiting for another test print off the printer to be done (fixing up print errors with some settings tweaked) but once it’s confirmed working, I’ll upload the 4inch high stanThingiverseverse + make it public on Tinkercad should anyone want it.

Simple, but hopefully more to come! Need anything printed? Helps me learn! Just let me know!
