A two-part tripod adapter for a Raspberry Pi Camera Module v1.3.
You will also need a 1/4" nut.
Please read the instructions for printing & assembly.
MC3D (Mexican) ABS
For the case, rotate the part before printing so that the front faces the bed. Use supports everywhere to make sure the rail where the adapter slides prints correctly.
For the adapter pause the print before the nut hole is closed (Check the layer beforehand on your slicer) to insert a 1/4" nut (Compatible with most tripod threads). I am not sure if all 1/4" nuts are equally sized thus make sure yours is 6.9mm from the side or less. You can also use this calculator if you have another measure that is not the side. It should fit easily. If it doesn't, you can edit the FreeCAD file, or you can also ask us and we'll provide you with a modified file.
To get a better finish, wet sand the case and adapter with sandpaper 180 grit, then 280 grit (only if using ABS).
You can also apply a coat of acrylic spray to the exterior of the case.
Installing / Assembling
Read all before assembling:
The camera module fits somewhat tightly so once inside the case it will be hard to remove. To solve this loop a thread around the four holes on the board and leave the ends on the back, so that in the future you'll be able to pull from the thread to remove it safely.
If the camera is stuck, have patience. Do not push from the lens, instead you can pull little by little from the holes on the board with some sort of little hook.
You'll also need to remove the cable, then insert it back when the camera module is inside the case. Remember the blue sticker on the cable should face backwards on the camera end, and the one on the end that connects to the pi should face the audio connector.
With the camera in place, you will only have to slide the adapter into the case. Do so carefully. If it seems hard to fit try sanding the connection a bit (We did not need to).
The back of the camera is open. If you want a cover for it just tell us.
