3D model description

Made to recycle the Canon XL1/XL2 shoulder mount accessories (including MA-100 and MA-200) on to 15mm bars for DSLR shooting..
This works perfectly for the original XL1/2 shoulder mount, and fits the mounts with audio connectors, but is work in progress as I intend to include a hidden battery and 5v output for the MA-100 and 200.. I will supply later versions as free updates if you ask me!
The MA-100 is intended for MIC level signals. The jack plug provides 5v DC to the MA-100, to power the internal op-amps that provide balanced-to-unbalanced conversion, and about 6 dB gain. There is no phantom power. Mail me if you have suggestions how best to provide the 5v and I'll incorporate it in the design.
Clamping to the 15mm bars is provided for by GoPro style thumbscrews or similar (eg Small-rig locking screws), which screw into M5 hex-nuts held in the print.

Extra requirements: 2x M5 hex head screw and half-nut.

3D printing settings

FDM.. best printed pointing upwards from the bed, aka the Falcon X.. this provides the strongest print around the 15mm bars. The thread will probably benefit from cleaning out with a 1/4" BSW tap.
