Think To Nelson for his Help


After a 1st Test I discovered that the complet STL I gave wasn't good.
The position of 2 pinces wasn't good, the structure doesn't resiste when you tight the screw.
I think that the best position is lengthen on the side.

I'll put soon a knew version

I printed this but the ball and socket have way too low polygon count, it's not smooth at all! I was able to sand the heck out of it and make it fairly smooth. The flat square base should probably be a GoPro mount or at least have a slot for a 1/4 20 tripod nut. Also the cylinder with the GoPro mount is not centered over the ball, so it doesn't go from vertical to horizontal orientation without turning it 180deg.

I don't mean to nitpick, just giving some (hopefully) constructive feedback. Never stop innovating!

It is a 4mm bolt with and 4mm nut.

It looks like you need a nut and bolt? What size?
