Great model, works really good but I think there's a problem with 'Leg_Sement_Updated'
Looks like a small gap in the geometry right in the middle :s

Great idea but useless. The balls wears down from use and the balljoint can't hold the weight of gopro any more. Design with a nut to squize the ball is better in use.

what size is the ball ?

@MonZon these are done in PLA in the picture.

Anyone tried printing it with PLA?

Sorry guys,

I found that some slicer and cad software was making a glitch in the mesh. I never had trouble in Makerbot/makerware but in simplify 3d it would import with the mesh bugging out but not always. I upgraded the whole tripod top, It seems to import correctly now and it is now available for download. Let me know if any one finds any bugs.

Tripod_top has a major flaw at the junction between the joint and the GoPro fixture as whiteb68 mentions.
Netfabb free could not fix it. Anyone with Meshmixer knowledge can fix this?
Potentially a useful accessory !

having issues printing the "tripod top" the part where the gopro attaches just breaks off wihtout any force at all, i printed it in abs

Im having trouble opening tripod_top.stl. It says the object is really small when it shouldn't be

Hi bobthesheep, depending on what program you are opening the file with you will need to set the model to be shown in Metric/MM for the correct scale.

You are a saint if this works! :D lol..

Thanks @joe8102244 let me know how it works out!
