cool idea and design. (was thinking of grinding down my merlin's mount because the 5Dii is too tall for a true NPP...) have you tested this in action? i wonder about slippage against the vertical motor+gears. great stuff! thanks.
thanks,

The dimension printer I used adds support material that you just snap off or dissolve when finsihed.
Nice work!

Did you use support to print it?

BTW, this make me think that we could also make a custom crown...

Instructions

The part was created to be 3D printed in ABSplus plastic used by Dimension 3D printers (fused deposition modeling)

I would not recommend printing the part using selective laser sintering from the likes of Shapeways since it will not be very rigid.

***PLEASE NOTE**** this part was designed to be used on a modified Merlin/Orion panohead. For use with my camera / lens I removed the spirit level and cut its support, I also removed the battery cover.
