This thing was revised on May 24, 2014. The revision added a 0.5mm thick surface to the clamping face of the part. The interior remains hollow. The older SolidWorks and .STL files have been deleted and replaced with the revised versions.

The "Super Clamp" (manufactured by Manfrotto, et al.), is widely used by photographers and stage hands for mounting cameras, lights, audio and other equipment. A triangular insert is supplied with the Super Clamp. The insert is used when clamping to a flat support, such as a board, etc., however, these inserts are easily lost. Here's a replacement for the Super Clamp insert.

Although this part doesn't look exactly like the original, it is perfectly functional. I printed in PLA, but ABS will work just fine.


  1. Print. (Prints nicely without support.)
  2. Insert into clamp.
  3. Remove from clamp to clamp onto a cylindrical support.
  4. Loose insert
  5. Print another one!

This is fantastic! I was just sitting down to measure up a superclamp and try making one of these blocks.

Maybe this time I should make a tether for it? Elastic string etc, so I quit losing the dang things? Where would the fun be in that?

I found that it is indeed more fun to lose them and then print more.
