3D model description

This is a hand grip, screw, and viewfinder glare hood for the Leica M2 camera.

The grip is attached by the 'accessory pin' on the left side of the camera and the tripod mount on the right, using a flat screw. My Leica had a 3/8-16 tripod mount but others have 1/4-20. I've included one of each and they are coin operable. I made mine in solid ABS for strength.

The viewfinder hood can be scaled to adjust fitment, the included model is the exact scale that fit best on my camera, in PLA @0.2mm layers. It fits the curve of the camera body and so only goes on one way.

There is a cutout in the front grip to allow the camera's timer to function, and a hole in the base, positioned at the film plane, which can be tapped to 1/4-20 to have a central tripod mount.

Edit 5/12/20: added a 1/4-20 screw for newer Leicas
Edit 4/19/21: changed part names and description for clarity
