Design request?

Is there a forum for people like me who can’t design things could ask the creative geniuses if anyone would be interested in designing?

im looking for a mini side mount bar that sticks out and a gorillapod can then wrap round it for an octolapse camera

RE: Design request?

The side extrusion on the mini appears to be standard 3030 same as used on the Mk3 and lots of other printers.  Why not search thingiverse for existing mounts ?  I found this one https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:434600 that is for a Pi camera module that looks like it would work but there are loads on there.  The search term I used was '2020 camera mount'

This one also looks promising https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4212206

Something like this?

I can do some "construct on demand" if necessary.

@lichtjaeger - that is very close!  somethign like that but with some sort of upright "pole" the gorillapod can curl its legs around - chunky I think as the ip cam is top heavy.

This is my setup at the moment

Look on Thingiverse for HeyVye's modular camera mount system. It's a set of parts for GoPro compatible struts, joints, mounts, etc.

Lots of people have printed collections of these (and compatible modules) to mount all manner of cameras.

Here's the collection of bits I currently use to mount a Logitech c920 on my mini:
