Some Day My Prints Will Come

I was approached this morning by a man holding a piece of black plastic in the shape of my centre mirror plinth / GoPro mount fresh off the 3D printer – and I saw that it was good.

The finish around the GoPro “fingers” is a bit “steppy” due to the limitations of the process for reproducing radii, but the (empty) GoPro case I’d taken to work slid into it snugly and the nut fitted in the hex socket and the bolt fitted and when tightened it gripped the GoPro case without snapping off the fingers – Success!

If it’s not below freezing when I get home (frankly unlikely) I’ll see if I can fit it to the dash top, though I’m unlikely to have the right size bolts.
