This is to create a replacement Tripod Quick Release. It amazes me how many of these shoes are lost yet the camera and tripod are not.

A lot of these seem to have a 'key' so the plates are not interchangeable when they ought to be able to do so.

There is an easy-access nut recess at the bottom for attaching the shoe to the camera.

This should print as created without support.


Take some measurements, key them into Customizer and print. And a bolt, and you are good to go.

The Velbon VideoMate 607 took about 1 hour and 15 minutes to print.
ShoeBottomWidth = 68;
ShoeBottomLength = 61;
ShoeTopWidth = 68;
ShoeTopLength = 54;
ShoeDepth = 8;
FrontDetentLength = 15;
FrontDetentWidth = 2;
SideDetentLength = 16;
SideDetentWidth = 3;
TopPlateWidth = 78;
TopPlateLength = 69;
TopPlateDepth = 1;

The Hakura S-6000 took about 45 minutes to print.
ShoeBottomWidth = 42;
ShoeBottomLength = 43;
ShoeTopWidth = 42;
ShoeTopLength = 34;
ShoeDepth = 8;
FrontDetentLength = 0;
FrontDetentWidth = 0;
SideDetentLength = 4;
SideDetentWidth = 3;
TopPlateWidth = 50;
TopPlateLength = 54;
TopPlateDepth = 2;
