Creation's quality: 5.0/5 (1 vote)

3D model description

This is a tripod utilizing the worm gear mechanism to move up and down. It has a phone mount inspired by the Universal tripod phone mount designed by neyfrota. If you want to mount something else like a camera, feel free to design your own adapter to fit whatever it is that you want to mount.

When printing Worm Screw & Body support is needed at the snap fits and the bottom or use auto support, touch platform only option. At least 0.12 mm layer height is needed when printing the Clamp Bottom, Long Screw, Short Screw, and Short Nut.

During assembly, the worm screw had an indentation to be align to the base indentation. Once that is aligned the worm gear legs could be snap on to the Worm Screw & Base, there are numbers on the Base to match each leg.

P.S. Sorry about the picture quality Thingiverse limit the photo size to be 500kb...

I got into 3D printing when took Drafting and Design class at my high school. It is just fascinating to me how I can print a object of my design in my home. Instead of just looking at my design on a screen, I can now touch it and feel it on my hands. I personally consider 3D printing as a hobby like playing video games. So I made this account to share my design to the world and if you like my designs I'm happy. If you don't well give me some feedback.
