Description

Print the thing up, single piece. Get a small rod for the smaller hole, match it to the depth on your camera, and glue it in place with a bit of ABS paste. Then figure out the threading for your camera and get a small screw that matches it, keeping depth in mind. Also, some foam tape on the top will make it easier to get a stable mount.
You may have to trim the print a little depending on the rotary lock of your tripod.

Materials and methods

Printed model, small post, fitted screw.
Foam tape (optional).

Thanks Jonathan and YouMagine team. I'm just getting into 3d printing and can use all the help i can get.

What software are you using? In Sketchup there's a tool called scale. You could use that to re-make the .stl file to your required dimensions. You'll also need the extension for it to export .stl files.

If you're using repetier host to actually run the print, there's a function under 'object placement' called 'scale object'. This will allow you to scale it in any of the three dimensions.

In either case, this model was made in metric, so calculating appropriate alterations will be your responsibility. I'm not good with imperial.

If you're using anything else I really can't help you. In my early days I tried a few printing suites and didn't like the GUIs, so I settled on Repetier.

Best of luck.

I'm new to this 3d environment so bare with me. I looked at the software but have no idea where this dimensions are denoted. I printed the Camera foot but its 1/4 x 1/8 to small. How can i open the software and locate and increase these dimensions?
