A suction-cup / window mount for a Raspberry Pi and its camera.
I used small suction cups from my local hardware story, removing the wire hook they came with so I could slide them into the printed frame instead. Possibly these 1 1/8″ ones.
I used the camera case and snap connectors from the Lulzbot design from nlaredo, and was inspired to clip onto the edge of the board by anykey’s design
Note that the clip inserts must be printed horizontally, since printed layers are strongly cohesive, but one layer does not adhere to the next. If you print the the prongs of the clips pointing upwards, they break off instead of flexing.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
