This is a holder that is used to mount a Xbox Kinect to a tripod. I wanted to use the Kinect to scan a small object. I read from a number of people that you should mount the Kinect in a stationary position in order to obtain the best results when scanning small objects. I had an old tripod manufactured by Maxell, so I decided to design a holder so that I could mount the kinect to it. There are two pieces to the mount. The larger one holds the Kinect's base while the smaller piece is used to attach it to the tripod.


Print the two items. They are attached by a 6-32 screw with #6 washers. The design can be easily modified to mount the Kinect to other items.

I made it. Works really well , great design. Thanks for putting it up!

I'm considering making one of these. How well does it hold the kinect in place? Has anyonee noticed it wiggling or tipping in the holder?

This is great, I'm surprised it's not way more popular. I'd love to see a picture of how you actually screw the tripod into this, or does this include your maxell mount clip? If so, I'd love to modify this to work on any tripod, could you post the source files?
