THIS DESIGN HAS BEEN MOVED TO YOUMAGINE:
This is a modification to
Alone it can be used for lighting video with 2 or in conjunction with
with 4 light bulps as a very strong video light.
With a large umbrella it's a soft and and without a hard video light.
When you want photo and video, this modification allows to place a flash on the same umbrella.
The hot show is tapared to allow for easy insertion of the flash.
I provided a technical drawing with the dimentions and spacing used, in case someone wants to design a different moficiation for this umbrella holder.
Unscrew the top plate.
Keep the 2 screws.
Slide on this part and insert the screws into the 2 center recesses.
You can use 4 additional screws for the edges. The original part has holes for 4 additional screws but does not use them.
It can be a snug fit if your layer height is too large. In that case try to insert a flash while the plastic is still warm.
The print you see was aborted after that damn Thing-o-Matic failed after 25 of 60 minutes. (The usual extruder-jamming when the PLA gets too hot due to an obvious design fault of the hot end.)
