|need help choosing material [message #46733] Tue, 10 April 2012 15:48 UTC
what is the best material for a mount for a phone. it has multiple parts. joints that allow 360 rotation. and will eventually be adapted to fit generic tripods
ideally it must be very rigid and strong (i dont want the phone bouncing around every where when you take a picture). im thinking alumide but am worried at the brittle-ness of it.
the example is 1.5mm dia. over 20mm length will most likely break
i plan to use rods with diameters of 4.1mm ..... is it still as brittle at these tolerances ?
i know the image might be a bit confusing but its only to show the basic structure .......i need to decide on a material before i can work out the mechanics.
and what gap you have to leave between moveable parts?
i can seem to find it anywhere? even on the materials page
