This was designed from my desire to wear my GoPRO Hero 7 on the neck as a tiny miniature camera with a normal camera strap.
A bonus is that you can actually discreetly film POV of your daily life or make time warp videos without without being ridiculous of having it mounted on your forehead or chest or some other contraptions like that.
I went through numerous iterations of this case to make sure:
This has been thoroughly tested on GoPro HERO 7 black. I believe most recent GoPro share the exact same body - but I don't know anybody who has gopro 6 or 5. The silver or white versions should fit as well, but I believe the charging port may be on slightly different place. Still if you are looking to get gopro the hero 7 "black" is far superior with its truly magical stabilization to anything else gopro made so it is worth spending more on it.
There are two files - first file is where the camera has a nice grip and covers the front LCD info screen.
I like this version the most and I use the case often. I would sometimes put it on Time Warp and then just walk to my destination. It creates nice transition shots. The covered front LCD makes it very discreet.
Second file has a smaller grip and it has an opening for the front LCD. I added this in case you absolutely want the front LCD to be visible.
The corners have a tight fitting hole for inserting a pieces of 1.75 filament or a thick wire to make the case structurally rigid for vertical layer strain.
It is not absolute necessary to insert the filament or wire to the corners - the fact that there are holes actually make the structure more rigid by itself by the way it is printed, but I wanted to be sure the case is as structurally sound as possible.
Finishing and Fitting:
In the files there is a zipped pdf file with a guide of my own tips how to finish it very easily for a superb professional look and feel just like on the images and how to fit it to your camera (it require gluing two craft foam strips on the inside of the case)
This case has been used extensively by myself and refined to the point when I am fully satisfied with it.
