I am someone that continually is moving my camera depending on what I am printing. I wanted a camera bracket that was maneuverable when needed, yet stayed locked when not. This articulating design has 24 indexes on each link connection point and a knurled nut so you can easily lock it.
LINKS: There are 4 different link styles that can be put together however it suits your needs. Links are held together with knurled bolts. One side of the link has a hex recess where the nut goes, the bolt goes in the opposite side. There is no right or wrong way to build this bracket, use any assortment of links to make the perfect mount for your camera.
X-BRACKET: The bracket that mounts the links to the X-stepper only fits on one way. It requires an M3x18mm Cap Screw to mount it. If built your MK3 and still have your bag of extra parts, there is one in there. There are two different styles of this bracket depending on the way you want your links to adapt to it. The MK3 shipped with 2 different variations of the X stepper brackets. Both styles are included, make sure the one you are printing matches your printer.
CAMERA HOUSING: Pretty straight forward. Put the camera in as shown in the myMiniFactory pictures and snap the cover on. Make sure to connect your ribbon cable before putting on the cover.
BALL: Mounting the ball to the links is simple. The ball fits into the hex recess on a link, and a knurled bolt holds it in place from the other side. The camera housing should pop right onto the ball with minimal effort.
CABLE TIE SLOTS: Each link has slots on it where a small cable tie can slide through. This allows for easily routing wires along the links.
1/4-20 MOUNT: With a 1/4-20x3/4in Cap Screw You can use this mount with any Webcam with a 1/4-20 thread on it (See Picture)
GBLOCK: This is a small cosmetic piece to fill the gap in the Link behind your camera.
PLA works great for all parts including the camera cover and bolts. I used the following materials:
