The standard mount on the Logitech C920 is fine for attaching at the top of your monitor on maybe on a desk or whatever, but it doesn't sit very well on the corner of an Ultimaker and most importantly doesn't allow you to angle the camera downwards enough to get the tip of the extruder to be in the middle of the screen.
These two parts screw together and uses a small grub screw to hold the camera to it, and screws to the Ultimaker itself. You can angle it at 0-60 degrees, the head won't bump into it if it comes near, and it won't fall off midway through a print.
The hinge is formed by screws, and so they can adjust the tension on the hinge. This is an area which may need a little more development as the screws seem to go soft after a while.
(I couldn't get the online 'assembly editor' thing to actually save what I'd arranged, so I took a couple of screen shots of it instead)
Materials and methods
Follow the 'teardown' instructions here: https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/news/teardown-tuesday-logitech-hd-pro-webcam-c920/
Get it as far as having removed the original mount from it, and optionally remove the microphones from the camera too (as you don't need them). Then put the camera back together again, but without the original mount.
Print up both parts. The holder just fits into the hole left by removing the mount. It's held into place by a small screw (eg. an M2.5). It doesn't need to go deep into the camera to hold it very securely (there's nothing much behind where the screw needs to go into the plastic, so you won't accidentally skewer the electronics or anything).
The two parts screw together using two more small screws which form the hinge. The tension on the hinge can be adjusted by tightening the screws.
Screw the whole thing to the top of the Ultimaker. Again, short screws are fine (I used 5mm M2.5s). There are three holes in the base to do this.
