I really like this z axis indicator

I want to make similar one that can hold dial gauge instead of digital gauge.

Since thoxbui posted only stl file, I had to design my own in openscad.

X-rods spacing is 45 mm. Rods are of 8 mm diameter.

You can utilise my scad file and put any probe mount on it.

Thank you for sharing this with the SCAD - with a small tweak to the hole placement and position, it worked great for my dial indicator.

Good print, lifted on one corner (fortunately the least important one)
Thanks for providing this design with the SCAD file - with a minor modification, I was able to make this fit my dial indicator. Clip works beautifully and the friction fit on the shaft with that notch works great.
