| Material Question [message #65516] Fri, 05 April 2013 03:16 UTC
Good evening ladies and gentlemen.|
I want to make an rod support system using 3d printing.
It's something that'll go mounted on my tripod and will hold my camera (2 kg) on a raised end and two 15mm width metal rods on the other
Something like this (not exactly this one, it's just so you have an idea):
(the camera would go on the right side in that picture)
I'm planning on printing just the support part (not the rods)
I was wondering if strong and flexible plastic would be fine for it
I realize the walls need to be thick but i don't know if the material can support the weight of my camera.
What do you guys think?
