Just a warning to anyone installing this - if you have a mainboard fan guard installed on your Ender 3, do not install this on the left side of the print bed - or at least be very careful -- depending on which fan guard you have installed, the mounting clip/screw could collide with the fan guard upon Y homing.

Thanks for uploading the design - I was looking for this exact setup and here it is!

Like Tenatious I am finding the case part to be a tad too small for the PiCam 2.1. The board and the lens both have trouble fitting in after initial print. Going to try scaling it up 1-2% today. Probably do the housing and lid at a uniform 102%, then the housing bracket at 102% just for the width and see how that goes. Thanks again for the design!

Hi Mike,

I hope the slight increase in scaling works for you and I am sorry you are having problems getting the board to fit. It is, in fairness, a snug fit so that the camera doesn't wobble around in it's housing. There will be a certain amount of filament calibration differences between machines. Maybe I was lucky when I created it. Thanks for the feedback.

Was this for PiCam V1 or V2? I have printed the housing and it's just a little bit too tight for V2.1.

V2.1 . The lens section should fit snugly into the u shaped slot and you may need to make sure the pcb is vertical for the lid to snap into place.

You should put a rubber tip on the screw part. I am planning on printing this soon once I get a Raspberry Pi for Hanukkah. I might print a tiny dot in TPU to enhance the grip.

Thanks for the input, Jack. The bolt seems to grip okay, but I try not to tighten it too much to be honest. Let me know how you get on with the TPU tip though. I have not used any TPU filament as yet, still a noob. Please post a make - it will be the first of any of my designs! :D
