Raspberry Pi Camera Mount with LED

3D model description

I created this design to try to incorporate 9 x 5mm 850nm IR LEDs (although it should work for any 5mm round LED in theory) into a case to hold the Raspberry Pi Noir (v2 for me) camera.

Having already used the following design on other Pi cameras:

which in turn is derived from:

I really liked the way the mounting worked so I decided to create a variation on that theme. I kept the tilt arm from the original project and adapted the camera case front to include the LED area, then created a new upright which is designed to be attached to other items via an M2 self tapping screw, and back plate to go with them.

In addition I created a lego compatible adapter block which can be attached to the upright with an M2 self tapping screw for more versatility in mounting the camera (lego stop motion is calling my name!). This was adapted from:

This is version 1, I will likely revisit it once I come to assemble the electronics!

3D printing settings

Printer Brand:
CEL

Printer:
Robox

Rafts:
No

Supports:
No

Resolution:
Robox default Normal profile

Infill:
20%-30%

Notes:
I have printed examples at both 20% and 30% infill and both seem acceptable for my use. The 20% infill does feel slightly less stable under abnormal compression for test purposes.

All parts print well without raft or support in the orientation the models are shown here.

All parts shown in the Thing cover photo were printed in standard Robox Polar White ABS. I have printed the parts in other coloured ABS too. Should work fine in PLA

Post-Printing

The hole in the Tilt arm does require some fettling when printing in the shown orientation, nothing too major though.
