Totally, Custom action camera mounts!

Oh this is gonna open up a world of shot possibilities. Anything is possible.

Found a place in Baytown that has a 3d printer and is making a business of it. The man's mother just told me over the phone, that he already has printed several modified gopro mounts. Unfortunately she said I just missed him. So I couldn't get any details until tomorrow.

I just designed my own version, as a CAD class project. And it would be real easy to modify mine or one of his designs to fit almost any idea or special mounting location. I can't attest to the strength of the printed pieces yet, but I always tether my cameras so I'll let you know as soon as I get my piece printed.

I can do the design and CAD work if anyone has any ideas or needs of their own.

Good for prototypes, but will never survive long in use.

Just after making this post I inspected the one that I have under a microscope. I can see where you might be right, however I have worked around plastics for a long time and when extruded properly it can be amazingly strong and resilient. Add to that the weak points, in many cases can be beefed up and overcome.....if you have enough gopro's to do the research.

Fortunately mine is a prototype I'm gonna contact gopro and try and interest them in my design. I'd give it to them for a bag full of goodies. You guys with the R6's and the gxr's would love it. I got the idea from seeing the way the cameras have to be mounted on the front of those bikes.

The plastics they are using now are already ten times better than the plastics being used in 3d printing 5 years ago. It's only getting better. Though with bikes you have the additional issue of UV protection. Which I'm sure you can cure with a rattle can.

So I finally got over to speak to the gentleman doing the 3d printing. I asked about the strength of the material and he asked me which one. I said what?

He said "We can print it in wood pulp derivative, abs, pva(water soluble plastic), acrylic, nylon, and an electrically conductive material.
And not sure what other materials may be available.

So Nylon is the strongest, and the electrically conductive is for printing circuit boards.

The price was a little steep though. he prices things according to weight and time to print. $29 to 39 for the gopro mounting shoe that I want done.

i have a buddy with a 3d printer at our office in the heights area if you want some prototypes made he can prob do some for you for the of it, he's always looking for new uses for the machine, it doesnt get used nearly as much as he would like.

Its a simple maker bot its not a profesional style system you'd find in a production style setting but it still extrudes the same plastics the expensive ones do.

What type of software can it work from.

I use AutoCAD and Solidworks.

Sweet..

I'm going to have to do some digging to see what types of other machines use CAD as the instructions to create parts.

Sadly, i checked with my homebody with the 3d printer in the heights and he said in the process of upgrading his printers table he had a malfunction and his maker bot is down so he may not be a good resource to print some prototypes up for you but i do know that theres a website called thingiverse.com or something that you can send them your prototype and they'll print it out and send it to you (for a small fee of course)

Just checked out shapeway. Yes that's what I was looking for they can even do printing in stainless steel and also gold.

And if I send them my design they will list and sell it on there website and supposedly I'll get a cut. Haven't checked into all of those details yet.
