DIY HQ Camera

In this project we’re making a case for the Raspberry Pi HQ Camera. This 3D printed an enclosure that houses the Pi 4 and the HQ Camera module. It’s compatible with any C or CS-mount lenses so we can use a wide variety of interchangeable lenses.

Easy/Fast 3D Print

The parts can be 3d printed without any support material using PLA. The case is modular and features snap fit covers that are easy to remove and swap out. The PCB mount is designed to secure the camera to the Pi and can be printed in just about 20 minutes.

Snap Fit & Modular

With snap fit parts you can customize the case to fit a number of different sensors and components. All of the ports and connectors are accessible so you can connect all sorts of devices like a display, mouse and keyboard.

This guide only covers the assembly of the enclosure. Please visit the links below to learn how setup the Raspberry Pi HQ camera module
