Bracket for use with a modified Merlin/Orion panohead (please see notes for more details)
Created for use with a Canon 600D and Canon 10-22 lens.


The part was created to be 3D printed in ABSplus plastic used by Dimension 3D printers (fused deposition modeling)

I would not recommend printing the part using selective laser sintering from the likes of Shapeways since it will not be very rigid.

*PLEASE NOTE** this part was designed to be used on a modified Merlin/Orion panohead. For use with my camera / lens I removed the spirit level and cut its support, I also removed the battery cover.

cool idea and design. (was thinking of grinding down my merlin's mount because the 5Dii is too tall for a true NPP...) have you tested this in action? i wonder about slippage against the vertical motor+gears. great stuff! thanks.

Nice work!

Did you use support to print it?

BTW, this make me think that we could also make a custom crown...


The dimension printer I used adds support material that you just snap off or dissolve when finsihed.
