Description

Developed and tested to mount a Savage ringlight on a VEO 2 204AB tripod. Probably works with some other "Arca-Swiss" plates, but they're not all compatible, so YMMV! (I'm not affiliated with Savage or VEO; they haven't seen or endorsed this design; their names are used for purpose of identification).

OpenSCAD file provided to allow easy modifications.

Materials and methods

First version printed with Taulman Bridge Nylon, 65% infill. Final version (not yet photographed) printed with MatterHackers Pro nylon, 80% infill.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: Rotate 90 degrees and print on its side (with supports), so the layer lines (and thus likely shear lines) aren't in a direction that's being stressed. Closing the clamp presses the sides together, pulling the base away from the riser. If printed without being rotated, this can cause the layers to separate.
