VESA to 25mm rod : as per the stereo/trinocualr microscopes that are fairly common right now.
Some of the dimensions may be wrong. ie: Rod length and therefore clearance at top/bottom, bevel at rear edge may interfere with the microscope mount. One of the bevels is being weird on a corner.
Offered as an alternative to someone elses printed design that seemed susceptible to fracturing over time. Describing what I meant seemed less effective and far more tedious than just designing one.
The VESA mount holes are 100mm and 75mm spacing, M4 cap head bolts (because wedge heads will just progressively split the print).
Printing with 3mm perimeters should make the relevant parts solid, and also the other relevent parts use infill and still be strong..... I guess.
I'm pretty sure PLA at 3mm perimeters/top/bottom with 30% infill will work fine. BUT this kind of thing needs some flexibility, and PLA tends to be brittle over time. So probably best to use PETG or similar.
Including .blend file because maybe useful and I'm offering this as an unrefined alternative. A microscope's life may be spared if I can contribute to a more reliable design.
