Photo Equipment Screws by mechadense Jan 29, 2013


1/4'' UNC
one is 3mm unthreaded then 6mm threaded
the other is 25mm threaded

I made a test-print with a crazy outer layer height of 25 micron -yes- 0.025mm. The print worked but there was some waving reducing resolution and making the surface rough. Nevertheless it turned out very usable and especially sturdy against breakage through sideward bending.

okay yes. i was just confused as my Rep2 isn't printing them right and keeps failing just before the thread and therefor it seems too small. Great work btw, sorry to waste your time complaining :P

The threads outer diameter is 1/4'' = 6.35mm

so its not a 1/4" at all? but they are all the same size..

So I'm guessing this is the standard size fitting for SLR Camera's? As in the same as a tripod..

Correct. There are also 3/8'' screws for really really big cameras but 1/4'' is the most common size.
