While there’s an endless amount of GoPro accessories out there, you may want to consider this custom print to get your night footage done.

Maker Voxxable designed this build in Tinkercad after buying a GoPro HERO5 Session, a process that took around 2 to 3 hours.

Apart from the ring of LEDs around the face of the camera, it also incorporates salvaged cells from a battery bank that can be recharged with a port on one side of the enclosure, and activated with a switch on the other side.

Voxxable tells us that this solution will keep the lights on for 7 hours. If you don’t need that much time you can use a smaller battery and maybe shrink down the size of the enclosure, futher reducing the print time of around 5 hours.

You can see how the GoPro fits into the print in the gallery below, along with a side-by-side comparison of the effectiveness of the lights. There’s also this quick gif to see how it all looks when filming video.

To make your own start with the files hosted on Thingiverse. Make sure you also read the description for a bill of materials.
