UM2 Raspberry Pi holder?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone stumbled on/created a good solution to attach a Raspberry Pi (B) + camera module to a UM2 printer for timelapses. That is without having to modify the printer? (as in drill holes and so on).

There's so much cases out there, I don't even know where to start.

My raspberry pi arrived today. I was looking for a case also. Cool to know there are mounting holes. There are also extension cables here http://www.bitwizard.nl/shop/rpi-camera-extension

apparently they tested them successfully up to 4m/13 ft.

I researched this before I order my pi.

I was going to mount the camera at the rear by the stepper motors looking forward and run the cable in behind the covers. But seeing you can get really long ribbon cables it could run along with the led cables and up the front looking back.

I had designed some small (and dirty) stuff to place the printed RaspiCase on the front top of the UM2.

And i adapted a case for the camera to be screwed to the case.

It's not very nice but it does the work, i have to check if i can find all the files i you want.

Didier that would be awesome.

@Labem: I find that cable fairly expensive and bulky and I don't feel like ordering the original flat cable from the US either. Printing a case is still my preferred solution

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
