MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
Small printable tripod, the folding legs are designed to print in one piece without supports. This is a challenging print and may be difficult with some printers. There are several mounting options, a standard 1/4-20 tripod mount, a hotshoe mount, and a phone mount (the phone mount works best with phones that have a centered audio jack since there's nothing that prevents it from rotating). The ball part of the ballhead is threaded, so try to get the threads aligned before screwing it on to avoid stripping the threads.
Warning: Using the audio jack as a tripod mount may damage your phone.
1/4-20 x 3/8 Hex Bolt [ebay]* - for attaching the ball head to the tripod legs and for the 1/4-20 mount (for attaching the ballhead, longer bolts can work).
