A Fun and practical stand for the newly released Raspberry Pi camera module 3


Raspberry Pi launched the new range of Raspberry Pi Cameras on Monday 9 January 2023.

I thought it was time I gave my 3D printer an upgrade; a new camera stand for use with OctoPrint and timelapse photography. Whilst designing the stand I noticed that the pattern I had created looked like a Giraffe’s neck, so I took this to the next level.
