I needed to build an articulated camera mount for a Raspberry Pi Stop Motion Rig project. I wanted something simple and cheap so I designed these hinges to fit standard 1/2"x24" Basswood pieces available at any hobby store. I designed them to fit the #10-24x3/4" screws I happened to have on hand. I also included guides to manage the camera's ribbon cable.
In my case, I bought a $3.00 basswood piece from Hobby Lobby and cut it into (2) 12" pieces. I glued these hinges on and slipped my camera cable through the included slots and now I have a fully articulated camera mount that is easily adjusted with the thumb screws.
These parts can be mixed and matched so thought I would post my things in case they helped anyone else create an articulated camera mount for their own Raspberry Pi camera projects.
No supports needed EXCEPT for the Star Knobs
Three and Two bladed finger hinges work together in pairs.
Straigh blade versions for flexability.
Star Knobs are the ONLY parts that need support!
Fixed Side Mount
This sliding mount prints in place but will slide freely for adjusting you camera side-to-side.
Hinged Camera back/shade
Camera Cover snaps into Camera Back/Shade
