Summary

Hello!
Since I haven't found a compact tripod here on Thingiverse, I've decided to design one.
It's very compact but also rigid, it can support a DSLR camera with ease.

No matter if you are at home or outdoors, this tripod is very handy and folds into a very small package. Plus, there are only four files for you to print and very few other components you'll need.

Have fun!!

How I Designed This

For me, it was important that the parts come ready-to-use out of the printer - so there is a little chamfer everywhere to make them have a pleasant feel in your hands.

Hi, this print is in mm and should not need any scaling.

Which software did you use? Great work! I liked the chamfered edges...

Question: If you use that camera to record prints, how long can you record on say a 32gb. Do you record your prints?

Hi, this type of camera is photos only.

kind regards,

Edit: No I don't record my prints.

$2.37 in parts, 13 meters of plastic at 20% infill. Works great!

Printing it right this second! Didn't have time to design my own for my trip to Europe, but i was soo happy when i found yours! It will sure be very handy!

Looking forward to printing this for our lab! I will post results once it's done. Thank you for the time and effort you put into this!
