I have this one currently, but I have not tried the dual head with it yet.

I will express my CRAZY ideas at any time! So you have been warned. None of my opinions are Lulzbots and can be wrong at any second.

Here's my contribution to this cause. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:949219

The mount portion slides onto the aluminum bed. It requires at least one M3 x 5mm screw to secure the pivot in the position you want. I made accommodations for M3 screws and nuts to secure the mount to the aluminum plate... but I found that the mount slides onto the plate and is fairly secure.

You'll need a longer raspi cam flat cable so it moves freely with the bed. I started using a USB webcam (Logitec C270) to get a longer cable to reach my Pi.

Printer needs to well tuned for the Print-in-Place mount... if you have problems, try reducing the flow rate / multiplier. This should create the clearances between parts to allow the GoPro portion of the mount to rotate.

Lastly, I'm using a multi-section post vs the single post. The articulation from the two sections accommodates the extra space the dual extruder needs.

Hope that helps... lots of choices out on Thingiverse.
