I wanted a semi-strong, stable, lightweight tripod for taking ground level shots and this is what i created. Its very lightweight, easy micro adjustments with fine threads and slides in the side pocket of my camera bag.
Print with any material at any layer height. I suggest 3 perimeters with a .4mm nozzle and at least 20% infill for strength. I'm including the STL for a special version body I designed to snap on to my K&F concepts ball-head adapter which is what i keep in my camera bag and attached to my camera. The standard version will work with any standard camera or DSLR with a bottom screw mount. The 1/4"-20 thumb screw works well but i suggest a metal thumb screw for strength.
Print whatever combination works for you. I printed and tested all parts and will be keeping the custom body, two 40mm bolts, two 80mm bolts and the bolt organizer in my bag.

Modeled with Fusion 360 to be printed with no supports.
Super easy print
I printed these parts with a .8mm nozzle, 2 perimeters and .2mm layer height.
Quick night shot to test. Love the low profile perspective for urban photography.
