VisionCam Development Library

Compact VisionCam and VisionCam Tall are fully developed 3D printed casings for Raspberry Pi based ProbeTool cameras, however there were many other ideas and configurations were explored during the design process that are available here for everyone to download, modify and build. These designs are not quite perfect but form the starting point for others to use and improve upon either as ProbeTools or simply as housings for Raspberry Pi cameras. Each design features a description of intended usage and details of any known issues.
