This camera mount clips onto the rail of an ender 3 (or any other devices that uses the same extruded rails as an ender 3. The head is designed to allow a logitech 270 class camera (any logitech with that wierd folding clip thing)
The "gooseneck" that supports the camera head are a popit universal joint based design that allows them to be used as cable management/strain relief.
The goal is to provide a flexable camera mount for a USB webcam to be used by octoprint.
These where designed for use on the ender 3s in the Portland Hackerspace.
This thing was made with Tinkercad Tinkercad link here: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/dv8lufpSOzO
The ender 3 rail clip is a slightly improved version of the wonderful work done by JonnieWhiskey https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2920060

These models are intended to be printed on damn near any printer, with damn near any material. The flexi joints have no tolerance between the ball OD and socket ID, so materials with a bit of flex should go together just fine and be quite stiff. and stiff enough to hold up a small webcam. Use 4 lines or more for wall thickness.
Print them out. Snap them together, lign up all the slots, lay the cable into the slot, make sure it is pushed all the way down, twist each link about 45 degrees to secure the cable and then clip the base onto the top side forward end of the left hand rail on the ender 3 and adjust your camera angle.

I had been working on "popit" style flexi links, added the ability to take a cable, by simply removing a 4mm chunk out of the side, and poof I had flexible strain relief/cable management
