(moved) Hotshoe for dual E27 umbrella holder by MarcusWolschon Aug 1, 2012

Description

THIS DESIGN HAS BEEN MOVED TO YOUMAGINE:
https://www.youmagine.com/designs/hotshoe-for-dual-e27-umbrella-holder

Reasons:
http://marcuswolschon.blogspot.de/2014/01/leaving-thingiverse.html

This is a modification to
www.dealextreme.com/p/dual-e27-sockets-lamp-bulb-holder-flash-umbrella-bracket-103135?item=6?r=78675737
Alone it can be used for lighting video with 2 or in conjunction with
www.dealextreme.com/p/e27-to-dual-e27-light-lamp-bulb-adapter-converter-94131?item=2&r=78675737
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.

Instructions

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.)
