Hey Daid, I tried printing the threads on my Replicator and didn't have success!! Â What printer do you use to print working threads?
Definitely upload it when you have it finished!! Â I considered using pencils / pens. Â And you're right about the pencils eraser down because slippage is a problem. Â

Here's what you'll need in addition to 3D printed parts:
1) 1x 1/4-20x1.0" socket head cap screw.
2) 1x 1/4-20 tap drill (or you can muscle a screw in there maybe).
3) Optional: Download and print the BuddyGripper3D thingiverse.com/thing:35617
Don't want to look for these things? Order a BuddyGripper Tripod Production Kit here: buddygripper.com/product/tripod-3d-kit/
Next, download and print the referenced STL files in the quantities mentioned in the file name.
Then snap everything into place, thread the hole for the 1/4-20 screw in the ballPivot and you're ready to go. This design was inspired by another tripod I saw selling for 13 Euros in Spain. So ridiculous that price.
Let me know what you think!
