I am using a 3" 4:3 "Digifinder" display-viewfinder on my Panasonic GH-1 but found that:
a) The way to mount it with a rubber band is ****
b) I can't see the edges of the screen where battery-level and other important information is shown
This adapter fits perfectly onto the screen of a GH-1, GH-2, FZ100, ... camera and can be attached and detached without any rubber band chaos.
It allows to mount the digifinder at a longer distance and thus see more of the display.
There is even enough room in the visible area to drill some holes and insert micro-LEDs as indicators for e.g. audio-level warnings or to have some feedback that the audio recorder is actually recording at the moment.
Feel free to adapt this to other cameras (e.g. the Canon 60D).
You can use the free 30 day trial of Alibre Design, just change the camera-specific parameters and export as STL.
This thing is very large and narrow.
So make sure the first layer sticks well and that your platform is perfectly level.
I added slits and a bridge to make reduce warping and curling-up but even on a heated build platform you need to have your temperatures right or they become an issue.
Below 8mm of warping (which is a lot) they are not noticeable in use
and below 1.2cm you would have a small gab. It does remain usable then
but will probably want to try again with a lower print temperature
and higher bed-temperature to get better results.
