i have the 36 mm x 36 mm camera, do you have the holder for that size?

Uploaded a file, message me if adjustments need to be made.

Thank you! worked great! fit was a little tight on the camera, but just fine

I gave this one a try in the hope it would save me some time designing my own mount, but was disappointed to find that the tolerances on the joints is so tight it can't be put together without breaking the parts. If I trimmed down the joins by hand it might go together all right, but in my case it broke pretty much instantly during assembly. The fingers are quite a bit wider than the slots they need to go into :(

Finally sorted out my issue with this model. It all came down to horizontal expansion settings in Cura - everything was printing very slightly too wide, making the gaps between parts too tight. I did some testing, adjusted the setting, reprinted a calibration cube, re-adjusted my stepper settings and bam, perfect parts. Hopefully this update helps somebody

Did you print the files in the orientation from the STL, or did you rotate them?

I rotated one of them (the base) as it was standing end-wise and would have needed a bucket-load of support, the rest remained as-is. Even the non-rotated parts didn't mesh though. X, Y and Z steppings on my printer are as close to perfect as the machine will yield. I'll fiddle with the design a bit and see what I can work out.

It prints as is with out support. The orientation is intentional for the strength of the part. It won't break off if you print in the orientation I set in the model.

It's strange that it didn't work for you. It fit together fine for me and for the few people who have posted makes at least.

Your included pictures folder is out of control

Thank you for your design.
Please note that the camera support can block the nozzle movement.

Is it possible to make a longer middle section? Maybe 200mm? I'm using your mount with a logitech c270 and it's a bit too close and is blurry.

Added a larger middle section, enjoy
