Can you make one for hero 5 ?

Please D4VL94 (and all future commenters)...see all my earlier replies about whether this fits newer models. I don't know because I only have a 3!

is it possable for this to fit on a hero 4?

I don't have one to test...sorry!

just wandering because i wanted to know if i could put it around my hero 4 and use it has a welding shield.

That's a great question! Why don't you research that and post here for others so they know.

i will try some other time i am having a problem with my printer i am trying to get a new one i am trying to use my schools 3d printer right now .

Does this fit on the Hero 4 Black ?

I'm not sure...I only have a Hero 2. Sorry!

For my HD hero this is slightly too wide. It holds it well, but not firmly. Nevertheless, thanks for the design, it prints easily and beautifully even 4 years after design.


That was one of my first complex designs, and was done in Autodesk Inventor. Now I use Autodesk Fusion 360 (on a Mac) and I am so much more proficient now, just from having built hundreds of challenging objects!

I tried printing one without a raft and support and it failed when I used my Replicator 2 printing directly on the build plate with PLA. Once I added a raft and support it worked fine. And it works great! I use the WiFi back on the GoPro and it fits fine. Thanks for sharing your design.

Hey... thanks for the tips about the ABS on the bed.
Also, great job on the camera holder.
I may use this in my FPV quadcopter.

Thank you for your object, it is very useful!
Could you upload the source file so that I could make a derivative?

Any way you can make one with a clamp on both sides? There is one on thingiverse but the other clip is very very weak

I might be able to do this...if I can find some time. I'll see what I can do.


Is someone making this design for sale to others? I use my HERO 960 outside the case all the time on my sidecar rig. This would be a great mount to have in my kit, but i don't have the skills or equipment to produce this. Anyone making them for sale?

It is a very nicely designed piece. Thanks.

I'm not sure if this is allowed on the Thingiverse site, but I could make one for you. How much do you think would be a fair price? $25 maybe? Please add postage, which would probably be less than $5.

Let me know.

By the way, I just used this on a 60-day cross USA road trip connected to the windshield of the car, and it worked flawlessly!

Any chance you'd flip this a bit and put the mounting holes on the bottom (for tripod mounting)?

This is a great "thing!" I have a GoPro and love to use it indoors but don't have a naked mount...for my camera ;) till now!

Hey Jim, any chance you could post the Inventor or STEP files? I was about to work on the same type of deal, but with a tripod mount.. and I'm lazy ;)
