If you are looking for a 3D printing project to keep you busy over the weekend you might be interested in this new GoPro custom 3D printer Greg which has been created by Calvin Witt.
A pro version of the GoPro camera rig is also available via the Pinshape website priced at $1.95 and allows you to download the designs source files for use and modifications to suit your needs.
So FINALLY I had some time to sit down and discuss my 3D printed GoPro rig! In another video I will discuss how to actually go about printing and assembling the rig + offer some technical tips for making your own GoPro rig. I wanted a simple yet effective design for filming when I was at the Maker Faire in San Mateo. This was my own design that has options to add on a small monitor for viewing footage in real time + a battery at the bottom for filming with. These are separate uploads.
The assembly of the handle is very simple. You will need 4, 1/4-20 by 1″ long bolts, 4 1/4″ bolt washers (optional) and 4 1/4-20 nuts. Also you will need 3/4 x 7/8 x 1/16″ o-rings for the handle. Carefully glue/epoxy the nuts into the handle and wait for the glue to dry. Put the screws into the handle parts and screw into the handles. Your GoPro handle is ready to go :-D!
