GoPro Accessories to 3D Print
Best GoPro Accessories to 3D Print or Buy #1: Hero Frame
What’s this? GoPros come with a case that’s virtually indestructible. It’s cool, but it’s also a bit bulky and can blocks the sound quite significantly. A lightweight 3D printed GoPro frame makes it easy to take out the cam – also, it doesn’t cover the GoPro’s microphone.
This design fits the GoPro Hero 3, GoPro Hero 3+, and GoPro Hero 4.

Best GoPro Accessories to 3D Print or Buy #2: Knob Tightener
What’s this? A handle for GoPro knobs. When you’re working with GoPros, you’ll have experienced the problem before. The knobs are a pain for any human hand and make your fingers hurt. They’re just not ergonomically designed. This handle for the GoPro knobs makes that problem a thing of the past.
Best GoPro Accessories to 3D Print or Buy #3: Spare Parts
What’s this? When your original GoPro accessories get lost or break, simply 3D print them for a cheap and rapid replacement. Unlike the relatively high priced brand items, these spare GoPro 3D prints can be made fast. They work with a few off-the-shelf nuts and screws.
Best GoPro Accessories to 3D Print or Buy #4: Macro Lens Mount
What’s this? A mount to add a 52mm close-up lens to your GoPro. Thread on one of those cheapo close-up lenses on one end, push the other end onto the action cam, and your GoPro is ready to shoot small objects up close, like flowers or insects. You can put your GoPro on an ant hill or even into a beehive (actually, don’t do the latter. Bees need their privacy and it’s dark in there anyway.)

Best GoPro Accessories to 3D Print or Buy #5: Lens Cap
What’s this? In to roughin’ and toughin’ it? Going off the beaten path is a sure fire way to get some epic footage. But sometimes you might want to pack it away, for instance when you need to squeeze through a tight dark space in a cave where you wouldn’t get any good footage anyways. This cap will protect your lens when you’re in such a rocky situation and want that extra protection.
It’s good for normal people, too.
