it's been a long time.. :-D and now I finally got my own printer but I still have the same problem. I measured the holes and they seem to be 16,5mm in the stl and in the actual print they came out 16,4mm which is still way too big to be tighten to the 15mm rods, is there any easy way to adjust the parts? I have no idea how to open AD prt or asm files :-[

A very basic shoulder rig for a camera.
Feel free to design attachments (e.g. follow-focus, handle, connectors for microphones, lights, display, barn doors or recording-devices) and improvements (e.g. an offset rig for DSLRs lacking a turnable display, different shoulder-supports, 3/4" parts instead of 1/4",...)
When the rig is finished, I'll provide exports of all parts into a number of CAD-formats to make it easy to reuse and improve them.
IF YOU HAVE NO ACCESS TO A 3D-PRINTER AND CAN't FINE SOMEONE ELSE TO PRINT THESE FOR YOU, YOU CAN HAVE SHAPEWAYS PRINT THESE FOR YOU:
1: remove both nuts from the Seagull's 1/4" bolt. See the photos if unsure.
2: print 1x MiddlePiece, 2x MiddlePiece_Seagull2, 1x MiddlePiece_Seagull and the camera_plate.
3: attach the quick-release adapter to the camera_plate
4: attach the MiddlePiece_Seagull* to the rods, 2 Seagull2 framing one Seagull
5: attach the camera_plate to the MiddlePieces. Use all bolts. They are needed so the rig does not flex
6: attach the rig to the Seagull using the long 1/4 nut. Go through the center MiddlePiece_Seagull2 and through camera_plate into the quick-release adapter
7: try on the rig and mark a comfortable length for the rods
8: NOW cut the rods to the required length for your body and camera-equipment.
9: print the T-connectors and connect the shorter rods
10: print the 2x EndPiece, try them on, mark the holes on the rods
11: Attach the remaining MiddlePiece behind the arc of the Seagull shoulder-pad
12: drill into the rods and fasten the EndPiece on both ends this way.
