GoPro 3D Prints for General Use

1. GoPro Knuckles

Since GoPros are effectively micro-cameras, they can be uncomfortable to operate by hand if used as a standard filming device. That’s why this designer came up with a knuckle duster-style handle. This makes filming on the go much easier, and since the mount is printed with 100% infill and attached with a 3D printed screw, the mount is as secure as your fist.

The only real problem with this design is that it is effectively a knuckle duster, also known as ‘brass knuckles’, which are considered illegal weapons in some countries and states. So be sure to know your own area’s laws before printing.

2. Mini Handheld Mount

GoPro Hand Mount

This handheld GoPro mount is a fantastic and practical alternative. It’s a very simple design, needing only 20% infill to be perfectly usable and sturdy, though you will need to print or buy a screw separately to make sure the GoPro is secure enough for general use.

3. Tripod/Handle Hybrid

Tripod 3

Using a clever 3D printed hinge mechanism, this useful handheld GoPro grip doubles as a tripod to keep your GoPro steady. This makes it perfect for hiking and camping videos, vlogging, and just about anything else that requires you to set down and pick up your GoPro repeatedly.

3D Printed GoPro Tripod

You’ll only need one screw to hold it together, and an optional shoelace or other string to make it easily portable.

4. GoPro Window Mount

  • Designer: goengineer
  • Price: Free

If you use your GoPro as a security camera or just want to livestream something interesting going on in your yard, then you’re going to need a reliable window mount for your GoPro so it stays at a good height while filming.

This design can be mounted and dismounted easily, and the mount itself doesn’t cover any of the buttons so you can still easily operate your GoPro even when it’s secured to your window.

5. GoPro Underwater Scuba Frame

3D Printed GoPro Scuba

Diving enthusiasts and swimmers out there are probably wondering how you ever truly lived without your waterproof GoPro, though using yours underwater without any extra equipment can be unwieldy and frustrating.

This 3D printed GoPro scuba frame is perfect for those of you who like to dive deep and want to get footage of even the darkest parts of your oceanic exploration. With the latest updates, your GoPro and the attached lights can be adjusted and controlled with just a few finger movements, so you’ll never need to let go of the handlebars.

6. GoPro Chest Harness

This design for a 3D printed chest harness is the perfect way to record your next outdoor treks, and it fits snuggly if attached to a good belt made of nylon webbing or better.

Be advised that the mount itself is designed for a Hero 3 sized GoPro, so you may need to use your slicer to adjust the size if you use a different model.

7. Mini Tripod Adapter

  • Download: Thingiverse
  • Designer: functionaldiyer
  • Price: Free

This very simple 3D printed attachment converts a standard tripod to make it suitable for a GoPro.

It’s an easy print that requires no rafts or supports, but you will need to scale it to around 1000% in your slicer before printing. 

8. Quick-Release GoPro Plate Adapter

  • Download: Cults3D
  • Price: Free

This Hama-compatible 3D printed tripod mount is the choice for Hama tripod users who want to securely attach your GoPro to it.

Its quick release system makes it easy to snap into place and remove as needed. And while the STL files don’t come with clear instructions, you can print this with confidence thanks to the screenshots the designer has uploaded of their design software showing the ins and outs of the print.

9. Backpack Strap Attachment

  • Download: Thingiverse
  • Designer: Nicrombious
  • Price: Free

This 3D printed GoPro mount is perhaps the most storied of our entries here. Designed for a trip to Nepal, this 3D printed shoulder mount was strong enough to survive a trip up Mount Everest!

The design is simple, with no problematic settings or complicated parts, though you will need to adjust it in your slicer to suit your backpack’s strap to ensure your GoPro stays attached and as still as possible.

GoPro 3D Prints for Vehicles

10. Tiny GoPro Drone

  • Download: Thingiverse
  • Designer: attackemartin
  • Price: Free

The goal for this 3D printed GoPro mount was to make something small enough to act as a miniature drone, but tough enough to hold a naked GoPro securely while airborne. All-in-all, the finished design with a standard GoPro 6 attached weighs less than 50g (under 2 ounces).

This is a working drone, so it’s going to be a long project despite its tiny size. You’ll need a few extra resources like batteries, wires, screws, and a motor, but everything you’ll need is well listed along with the detailed instructions on Thingiverse.

11. Tough Skateboard Mount

Skateboard videos are all the rage on sites like YouTube and TikTok, but the fast speed and balance needed to perform tricks makes using a handheld camera prohibitively tricky.

This design was rigorously prototyped to make a skateboard-ready GoPro mount that can handle shock and falls thanks to its improved infill settings and use of tough TPU filament.

Everything you need to 3D print and assemble this great design is thoroughly laid out in the link above, along with some example videos to make sure your print is as smooth as your footage.

12. Universal Drone Mount

3D Printed GoPro Drone

While many drones are camera-ready, they’re not all designed to securely hold a GoPro when in flight. This universal mount for a GoPro 5, 6, or 7 is designed to work with various drones so you can get some really cool footage of your drone’s flight without worrying about your expensive camera falling to the ground.

The screw holes are included in the print, and no adjustments should be required if you’re using a standard GoPro, though be advised that you may need to do some tweaking to make sure it fits onto your drone as securely as possible.

13. Adjustable Bike Tripod

  • Designer: Vidar
  • Price: Free
3D Printed GoPro Accessories

Attaching a GoPro to a bike can be risky, especially if you’re using an inferior mount. Even some store-bought ones can be unreliable, but I found this safe and secure 3D printed GoPro bike mount stays sturdy when the road gets rocky.

With only a few additional screws and an optional spring for easier adjustment, these free STL include a host of 3D printed GoPro bike attachments and accessories you can count on.

14. GoPro Car Attachment

Car 2

Using a GoPro on the road is a cool way to get footage of your drives and routes and can provide a crucial service for driving instructors and insurance claimers. This 3D printed GoPro mount is safe and secure, designed to fit onto the rear hooks of some of the most common car brands.

Needing no more than 8 screws, this secure mount will attach easily to your tow hook ready for you to get some rear footage in no time.

15. GoPro Magnet Mount

GoPro Car

Now that we’ve covered attaching a GoPro to the rear of your vehicle, we’ll look at attaching one to the front. This 3D printed magnetic GoPro mount N52 grade magnets to hold your GoPro in place while you film your drive.

It’s designed to be attached with a standard suction cup for easy windscreen adhesion so it can be removed or relocated easily without sacrificing security. Unfortunately, the cup linked along with the files is no longer available, but you can easily find similar ones online.

16. Surfboard Pole Mount

Surf Board Mount

Getting GoPro footage from your surfboard is a great way to show your friends how well you rode the waves. This 3D printed mount is the best design for a surfboard mount, though it is still a work in progress.

You’ll need to make sure you print it with something tough like TPU and use maximum infill. We also recommend rigorously testing it for security before use, since losing a GoPro in the ocean means it’s as good as gone.

Honorable Mentions

17. GoPro Mount for 3D Printer Timelapses

  • Download: Thangs
  • Designer: TheBuildBay
  • Price: Free

3D printing is often a long process, and you can’t be expected to stand there and film the whole thing yourself. If you like to make time lapses of your 3D printing projects, you’re going to want a GoPro mount that’s actually designed to fit onto your printer.

You will need some screws to hold it all together and make sure you account for at least two pauses mid-print to ensure everything lines up correctly. When you’re done, you’ll have a working GoPro mount to make 3D print tutorials or reference videos as you like.

18. GoPro Shoe Mount

  • Download: MyMiniFactory
  • Designer: Aleksander Thuesen
  • Price: Free

3D printing a GoPro mount for your shoes probably wasn’t the first thing to come to mind, but it is a pretty cool way to film your on-foot journeys and record the world from a lesser-seen point of view.

The mount is designed with holes that you can thread your laces through to hold it tight, though you could also use zip-ties if you’re worried that your laces may be too loose. Be advised that the designer recommends only using XT to print this due to its high stability and durability.

19. GoPro Filter Adapter

GoPro Filter

It’s easy to forget that GoPro also has a photo mode, and this filter adapter is perfect for adjusting the filters in this mode in ways the GoPro isn’t designed to do as standard.

It’s a much cheaper and easier alternative to buying one online, though it is primarily designed for a GoPro Hero 8 52mm, so you will need to make some adjustments in your slicer if you use a different model.

20. GoPro Storage Case

  • Download: Printables
  • Designer: Whity
  • Price: Free

If you’re worried that your expensive GoPro will get broken or lost in transit, then you’re going to want to 3D print a good, tough storage box for taking it on the go. This rugged case is designed for GoPro models 9, 10, and 11, and includes slots for the camera itself, SD cards, and a spare battery pack (you can check 3D printable battery holders here).

Depending on the size you want, holding 2 or 4 SD cards, you will need either M3X20 or M3x25 screws to hold it all together. We also recommend getting some foam for the lid for some extra protection, which the model is already designed to accommodate.

21. Float Tripod

Floating GoPro Mount 3D Printed

This float GoPro tripod is an excellent DIY project for beginners or those who just like to use household items to make something new and cool. By attaching just a few soda bottles to the 3D printed mount, you have your own floatable GoPro tripod that you can use to get some candid footage of your local park pond or private swimming pool.

It’s designed for any model GoPro, so you won’t need to change the size at all, though you should avoid using any more than 50% infill so it still floats comfortably. We also recommend still using a waterproof GoPro as the model may still capsize when in use.
