This is my best diver camera sole so far!
I made the two big slots on the sole to make handle mounting even easier. To match the rod endpoint diameters with the Dinkum FlexiJoint pieces (30 mm) I have shortened the global length to 238 mm so now it fits to a 200x200 mm build plate if you turn the model 45° in Z.
Can't wait to dive with this beauty :)
Materials and methods
To assemble the handle you will need:
## In the sole
- 2 pcs 1/4-20 UNC threaded insert (I have used one of these http://www.crosstools.com.au/threaded-inserts-for-plastic%2C-wood%2C-injection---rotomolding.html - the holes are 8 mm in diameter so basically all threaded insert would work, just heat them up with a solering iron and push them in)
- 2 pcs rods with 1/4 UNC screws on both sides (I strongly suggest Dinkum FlexiJoint - just buy a pair from the cheapest one: http://www.dinkumsystems.com/actionpod/ )
- 1 pc UNC 1/4 camera screw like this one: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Camera-Accessories-UNC1-4-Stainless-steel-Slotted-Tripod-Quick-release-Plate-D-ring-Camera-Screw-for/32862381665.html
## In the rods:
- 2 pcs 1/4 UNC nuts
- 2 pcs 1/4 UNC bolts (>=18 mm in length)
