So when you need something what is the first thing you do? Well if you have a 3D printer it is to visit Thingiverse and look for what you need, download it and print away. Well that is what we did when we needed a small tripod for the gimbal project we where working on. It turned out so well we created a video as if you need a small tripod, this is worth the plastic. One extra note is you will have to also design and print you inter-bushing for the 1/4″ 20 TPI rod, we liked this as it also allows us to customize things a bit.
