Improved 3D printable camera mount

I updated and improved the design for my pick-and-place machine’s camera and hexagonal LED array holder.

The new version better fits the LED PCB I had manufactured.

Combined with the barebones of a Logitech C270 USB HD Webcam it makes a good table scanner camera for LitePlacer or other pick-and-place machine.

Disclaimer: If you order the camera through above Link, I will receive a small commission from Amazon PartnerNet affiliate program – you will pay the same price as when shopping directly from Amazon.

I also included multiple versions of the top frame to support different thickness of table top – just print the top frame version you need:

table_thickness

Other changes:

  • Enlarged screw holes; these tend to shrink especially when printing ABS
  • Made upper lid more rigid
  • Altered supports for C270 PCB in cam holder

To assemble the case, you need 7x M2 x 6mm screw for thermoplastics and a bit of glue to fix the top frame to LED holder. Find further instructions in my original post.

I printed these parts from ABS with 0.4mm nozzle, 0.16mm layer heigh, 1.2mm shell, 0.8mm bottom/top and 20% infill.

If you do not own a 3D printer but want this part, I might be able to print one for you and sell you the finished product.

    An excellent example for 3D printing. Thank you Malte for your great „piece of art“!
    All parts fit perfect and the c270 can be mounted easily using the screws from the original camera housing.

    Look great, thanks.
    Where did you locate the camera hole in the table, measured from front left leg of the Liteplacer?

      In my setup, the edge of the camera mount’s top frame is about 40mm from the table front. In X-direction, I placed the camera slightly right of the middle.
      I will post a bit more details about my table setup and the reasoning behind it – either here or on LitePlacer forum – soon.
