3D model description
This is a custom bracket for my 20mm ball and socket camera mount (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4586256). I found the 1 metre long ribbon cable of the Pi-Cam was picking up interference and causing image instability. So I elected to buy a cheap and cheerful USB webcam to feed into Octoprint and timelapse etc.
Works a treat and all you need to do is remove the philips headed screw from the original camera mounting clamp and slide out the hinge pin. The camera can now be removed from the clamp and fitted to the printed part, using the original hinge pin and screw. Fit the M3 x 20 cap head screw into the base of the mount before fitting the camera to the mount. Fix assembly to the top face of the ball of the "Ball and Socket" mount.
Now I know it all works, I must get round to printing the whole thing in Black for the Predator.
3D printing settings
I printed the mount in Purple PLA silk because it was what I had in the Kossel at the time. Print the mount on its back. You could probably print without supports but the hexagonal hole for the hinge pin probably would get a bit ugly so print supports everywhere. They'll only be in the hinge holes and the centre pedestal hole anyway.

I seem to be collecting 3D printers faster than non winning lottery tickets. Still learning this stuff and cutting my teeth with Fusion 360. Hopefully, some of the things I've created will be of use to someone. Please feel free to let me know as positive and constructive feedback is welcome.
