I'm using XBox 360 Kinect controller as 3D measurement device. Kinect has an powerful IR-laser and all the other parts needed for good 3D measurement device. This simple thing allows to connect Kinect to camera mount easily. More information about using the Kinect as 3D scanner can be found from http://openkinect.org/


Those two small clips will need some tuning after printing but they should click to the holes underside Kinect. They should provice snug fit - so snug that it requires small flat-head screwdriver to take apart the mount again. This thing also allows to keep Kinect on the table too, underside is totally flat so it still stands fairly stable on the table. Prints just fine with Makerbot Cupcake, I have been using this thing for few weeks now.

How does this attach to a tripod? Can you create screw threads by forcing the central hole to screw onto a threaded metal screw? If so, can it then be removed from the tripod and replaced, or does this process strip the plastic hole?

The STL file provided has a hole with a 6mm diameter, which means the tripod screw will be a snug fit and will probably not mesh much with the threads.
