i think this idea has lots of potential!

have you been able to improve it?

I have an OpenSCAD script for 1/4-20 thread that is printable and fits nicely into the camera. With this you could create a screwable cap.

I'm still working on my own camera mount, but here is the script for the thread:

Perhaps it would be a good idea to screw it into a camera when the plastic was still warm and wait for it to solidify in the threaded hole so that when you screw it out it will have taken on the necessary threads???

Hi M_G...

I'll leave that test up to you. ;)

The "zip-in" fake threads actually work pretty well. What I would rather do is install a 1/4-20 screw. However, this works OK for now. I'm not sure I want to put melted plastic into my camera!

I am working on another variation of this camera stand with the
lug offset to the side. That's because my camera has its mounting hole over on one side, not centered.

Thanks!

I'll give both kinds of thread making a try with my own camera once I have a chance (I'm not too concerned with getting molten plastic on it).
