Mount your GoPro camera to the moving bed. Mounts underneath the heated printing plate. Therefor heat will not effect the mount. The mount also clears the frame in full up and down positions. Glue the two parts together but it is not necessary as there is a good fit.
Bed must be raised from advanced options to properly install. Re adjust your bed after installation. Possible to mount from side of bed closer to the supports. Use at your own risk. :)
Print the bolted section with the 3 fins facing down. Print very slow in the first 5mm to avoid detaching the fins from the print bed. Use a freshly cleaned and leveled bed to print. I had best results on the rounds by printing on a clean and unheated print bed (PLA material used).
Design Notes: I tried to vertically mount it with a swivel to allow for simple removal when the bed is lowered. I have the designs but due to clearance issues and the possibility of the print head striking the camera I moved away from that design. I can make it work, if I have time a V2 may be coming out soon.
