VESA Mount Anton Bauer Battery Plate Adapter for IKAN V17

This is the older IKAN monitor not the new V17e
I had the plate held on with 1 screw and it spun (hence the circle marks on the back . ) When I got the VESA Monitor Mount from EZ FX (they make a very nice stable Jib mount here in Florida) I could no longer put the Battery on the monitor .. Since I have an Ultimaker I said YES I CAN . 45 minutes later I had this.. Now is it perfect NO but it gets the job done. Mine is slightly different than the one you see in the STL. I didn't want to wait another 8 hours to print this (I made my printer go slower) I took a Dremel tool to it to clean up a few items I left out . I fixed them on the STL so you wouldn't have to. I made a mistake and put an opening on the wrong side and forgot about the Toggle Switch . Also the opening was slightly too small for the plate but fortunately the Wall was the right thickness and it came out in one move :) but now there is a Place for the release tab built in . Also the VESA mount went under the Plate so I fixed it in the STL. Will I print this again . Maybe in the future but WHY this works perfectly and will last me years :)
Slow down your printer . IT has little registry holes on the back for the other holes
My friend has an IKAN V17e and I know he will want me to make this for him when
he gets his Anton Battery Plate. So Ill have a V17e Version also .
Im really happy with this design so much so that Ill be using parts of this for another
plate for the Jib itself :). This is a VERY large Flat surface this did not curl as much as I had expected
but yes it did. WRAP your tape over the edge and tack it down on the backside to help with the curl.
This helps with the tape wanting to PEEL UP if you cut it to fit the top Surface. I do not have a Heated
bed I wish I did I know I would get better result. Let me know if you use it and how it works out for you.
After using it on a shoot I found that it Blocked the Side legs from moving. so I redid it. I will post pictures once its printed. (Ill clean up the STL file soon Just started the print when I noticed the issues)
This Version is so much smaller and it makes it so nice to use since it allows the battery to sit in an appropriate manner than the original one. This version rocks compared and it uses less material IT totally lines up and works perfectly straight out of the printer. No adjusting . And its more secure since it allows the use of all 4 VESA Screws
I left the original up in case someone wanted it.
Forgot to get the Size of the Screws... Your local hard ware store should have the right sizes. I didn't write the
sizes down as I was in a RUSH to get to a shoot and was running late (they happened to be next to a Ace Hardware)
But you need 2 VESA Mount Screws and 4 Screws that are in the back of the plate.
