I'm having an issue making the quick disconnect clip part. I printed it on an UP! using ABS but the two clips you need to bend broke when I squeezed them. Is there a specific material that works best with parts that need to flex? I oriented the clip vertical to limit the need supports, perhaps laying it flat and will help with the clip strength?
I have access to a couple of different printers one does ABS and one PLA (UP!3d and Makerbot replicator 2).
Oh the HDR-AS100 can be used without the case so something to also look at. I'll upload my AS100 stuff when I get it all sorted out.
Thanks, Jeff
