Can you post design file?

This one works great for the Raspberry Pi Camera Module V2. I tried the one from ModMike and the tolerances were too tight and didn't want to spend the time trying to make it fit. Nice mod/remix.

Agreed!! I also tried the ModMike one, tolerances are way too tight - presumably the printer has to be perfectly calibrated for it to print properly, both for the camera housing and the arm grips.
This one has enough tolerance built in for even a noob like myself to print it successfully on my first try without any sanding or cutting necessary. It all just snapped together.
Awesome work Codemonkey!

This is a great design. I purchased the V1.3 Raspberry pi Camera and the front face top of the camera didn't fit because the front part of the camera cover front was blocked, so I just snipped off a bit of the plastic and the front popped on no problem. I should have just printed the original for the V1.3 Camera. Great Design anyway. I'll print it again if I upgrade the Camera. Thank you.
(3d Solutech Navy Blue Filament 210C/bed 60/ 0.4 nozzle $17.99 on Amazon).

The bolt needs to be closer to 25mm (1") than 16mm, the 16mm I bought don't work. Also, I needed to print at 102% to get the nut to seat well, otherwise it cracked in PLA.

I copied your mounting scheme, and added a pivot arm with some articulating links so I could get a larger camera farther away from the bed for a better POV, and more angle adjustment. Thanks for an excellent design!

for the long L bracket on the camera mount, is it possible to create 2 pivot points? One where the empty hole is right behind the camera and another one closer to where it clamps to the black box with the barcode? That way we can pivot the camera closer and at a different angle? Maybe by the use of some small screws to tighten down? Thanks and beautiful mount, cleverly built!
