Tripod adapter for Kinect by allartburns Mar 8, 2011

Featured Thing!

Description

This is a simple tripod adapter for the Kinect that requires only one non-printed part, a 1/4" x 20tpi jam nut.

I'm marking this as a work-in-progress because some skeinforge configs don't like the STL file. Mine complains but my Makerbot Cupcake prints the right thing, so it's probably not going to stall anyone else's printer.

I think you're right, on my Cupcake I was able to print this, but mine might be tweaked differently than yours.

Recently I started making some improvements, in a future upload I'll include a bit with a piece to be cut away.
A small thin wall at the end of the fork (for removal later) would greatly improve its print quality.
great model! it fits really well

Instructions

Print out one of each file. If you're printing on a cupcake, it's easiest to print these on their side -- the two holes at the center are small enough relative to the rest of the piece that they won't collapse. The notch for the cord will be messy, but you can clean that up with a knife.

Before assembling, use a hobby knife to open up the holes for the bolt and the nut. They're undersized so that it's easy to get a custom fit.

Put the piece with the jam nut on the Kinect first, then slide the other piece over it. When the holes are lined up, screw in your tripod bolt and you're done.
