Quick release plate for Manfrotto (Bogen?) 501/503 tripods.


Very rough first attempt at creating a shared .stl--gives several geometry warnings when slicing, but prints better than expected. The text does not print very well in this version. Expect updates!

This didn't print, just parts of it.

Hey, try this: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:72359

It's configured for a Bolex camera but the center slot can be used for any camera that uses 1/4" or 3/8" tripod screws.

I made this version with a tool I was familiar with at the time. It seems to have had a rough conversion from .OBJ to .STL. I've had a lot more luck slicing and printing stuff designed with OpenSCAD like the one linked above.
