UM2 iphone time-lapse camera mounts

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2 iphone time-lapse camera mounts

Do you love a 3d print time-lapse video, but can't be bothered with set up?

My latest 3d printable design solves that and with 2 camera mounts as well!


Sliding frame mount and ball/socket articulated arms with snap rings to keep those joints tight.

Move your camera into any shooting angle you need. I've created phone mounts for my iphone 5 and 6.

Coming to a download library soon!

Is there any chance you can make the phone clamp piece for the smaller, iPhone 4?  :)

Edit: Will this clamp on/fit the Ultimaker Original ?

    @francfalco and/or share a step file ?


    Hi guys,

    The only 2 printers i have access to are UM2 and MB, so i'm sure the clamp part won't fit anything else?

    Unfortunately, my 3d modelling software is C4D and no STEP file export available.

    This is great! I've been thinking about designing one of these for a while!

    My idea had been to design one that mounts on the extruder, so that I could get some closeups of what's happening at the nozzle for debugging slice settings, but I thought it might cause problems with the extra weight on the extruder...

    Might be fun to try and design a mount for the bed, too, for some new angles.

    I once did a bed mount for Gopro, maybe you can adapt it for your phone...

    Question about time lapse...

    What sort of delay do you guys use? I was using an app for the iPhone 4 that takes a photo every 10 seconds....but upon playback, its just not as smooth as recording the entire thing and then speeding it up. The delay makes it too jumpy.

    What's the magic number :)

    Never crossed my mind to record normal speed and then speed up in post production!

    I too use 10s frames, agree not great but it does the job, but i may try the full record - i have a new iPhone with lots of space, so that might be an option now.

    I'm also trying to incorporate a camera Pan into my time lapses, wonder if there is an easy way to do that?
