This is a Sparco X1 helmet action camera mount I designed for my drifting hobby.
It was designed with enough clearance for both the skeleton and waterproof cases alike. It puts the camera at eye-line height and as close to the helmet as possible without being imposing.
I used M5 bolts and Nylocks nuts to keep it neater but the original GoPro / Firefly fittings fit straight in.
There are two versions of the arm, one that has rounded edges but is bulkier but more printer friendly for those who don’t get great overhang results. The other is a tube design which looks a lot neater.

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!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
