Any chance of getting the source file as I need to make the tripod bolt hole a bit bigger?

Which piece mounts it to the rails?

I coudn't find it either. it looks like the 2020 adapter with an extra plate.

How do the arms attach to the back of the camera?

The back plate has a slot for the nut. I'm assuming you connect another one of the 2020 mounts to the back of it. Then connect the arms to that. I'll post a picture when I'm done :).

Second question. That camera seems to be available with a single 1W white LED but I don't see any way to configure it with two on the sales page. Why does this mount assume two lamps?

What is the minimum focus distance with the 2.8mm and 2.1mm lenses? The standard rpi camera has about a 50cm minimum focus distance, so you're not going to get the printed object in focus from most vantage points that that arm will reach.

It seems that the screw hole are for M2 screws, and the size of camera mount has been enlarged to 150%...

I just got done printing and mounting this. M3 worked fine and I didn't have to scale it up in slic3r. Is your printer calibrated to printing the 20x10 or 20x20 mm test cube / dice?
