GoPro 3D Print #1: GoPro Knuckles

Bildschirmfoto 2016-02-18 um 15.34.19

What’s this? These is the most direct camera mount you can get. You 3D print this knuckles mount, mount your GoPro camera and start going. Feels comfy, is easy to handle in action (while running, skiing,skating, diving, skydiving etc.)

Who needs this? If you want to give your action shot a twist, this could be the mount you’ve been looking for. But, as maker suatbatu writes, “please don’t punch someone with it. I tested it for you, it does what a brass knuckles does, perfectly”. All3DP doesn’t like violence, either.

What is it? 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.

Who needs this? Creative scatterbrains that always leave their equipment anywhere but where they may find it again.

GoPro 3D Print #3: Reusable Mount

What’s this thing? The great thing with GoPros is that they are small and versatile. They don’t need much space. As such can be mounted virtually anywhere. But often, you lack the right mount for what you plan to do. Headbands, suction mounts or the chest harness that makes you look like a fool aren’t always the answer.

Who needs this? Everyone who doesn’t want to waste sticky pads GoPro offers. They may work well on almost any surface, but how about some sustainable, reusable mount you can 3D print for your GoPro? And it’s possible to get off without screaming bloody murder, too!

GoPro 3D Print #4: Hero Frame (For GoPro 3, 3+, 4)

What’s this? GoPros come with a case that’s virtually indestructible. It’s cool, but it’s also a bit bulky and blocks sound very effectively. A lightweight 3D printed GoPro frame makes it easy to take out the cam and doesn’t cover the GoPro’s microphone.

Who needs this? Need to access your mounted GoPro often or is the provided GoPro case overkill where you use it? 3D print a GoPro frame and enjoy clearer sound as a nice side effect.

GoPro 3D Print #5: FPV Crash Case

What’s that good for? FPV is an acronym for “First Person View”, and it connects flying a race drone and virtual reality video goggles to a spectacular sport. FPV pilots are used to 3D print parts as they are lightweight and easy to customize. So why not protect your GoPro with something out of the 3D printer they use anyway?

Who needs this? Adrenaline junkies that have to spare every gram in excess weight – the hobbyist fighter pilots of modern times.

What the heck is this? The new version of the GoPro case looked much better than the previous one, but soon users began to complain that it is a real pain in the a** to open. Even without fat sausage fingers, it is really hard to open the lid. So hard in fact, that there is a tool you can 3D print to open your GoPro lid (and fasten the screws which aren’t exactly ergonomic too).

Who needs this? People with inflexible fingers that have problems gripping the abomination that GoPro sells as the standard screw handle. And open the handle of the new improved GoPro case. This GoPro 3D Print really comes works.

What is this? We love simple solutions that combine 3D printed items with everyday things to create something new. For a floating GoPro 3D Print tripod you need three empty plastic bottles. Screw them in the 3D printed connector, and you can record with your GoPro under water or above the surface.

Who needs this? Swimmers, or pool divers. This may be great for some vacation videos, but diving or water sports isn’t the right area to use this.

Why 3D print this? Gorillapod is just another word for flexible and versatile, just like the use cases for your GoPro. You can extend the nearly endless possibilities, and improve the production value, by professional microphone on top of the GoPro.

Who needs this? Amateur filmmakers who want to step up their game by using professional accessories with this GoPro 3D print.

Why this gadget? Virtual reality and 360-degree video are on the rise, and you don’t need to buy one of those fancy new cameras to produce your panoramic videos. GoPros work fine if you position them right – 6 GoPros, one rig to 3D print, and you’re ready.

Who needs this? Everyone who has got a lot of GoPro action cams at hand maybe owns a 3D printer and has the right software to create 360-degree video spheres. That’s a pretty narrow definition, but this target demographic is probably growing.

What is this? Running your GoPro up in the trees on a ropeway sounds good? With the “StabImg”, which stands for “stabilized image”, you can do so. 3D print and assemble it, attach your GoPro and never worry about the steep inclination you have to utilize to run your 3D printed ropeway camera vehicle over a long distance.

Who needs this? A cable cam solution like this may be useful for any sport like mountain biking, water rafting (with the ropeway track across the river) or ambitious filmmakers that want great shots from an unusual perspective.

Who needs this? GoPro enthusiasts who want to produce steady tracking shots.
