3D Printed Quick Release Adapter for Cameras #3DThursday #3DPrinting

RJ_Make shared this video on Youtube!

In this episode of ‘Practical Prints’, we design, build and strength test an quick release adapter for the popular EI-717AH Fluid head.

Sold under the names Cowboystudio, Weifeng /Fancier, E-image and others.

The purpose of this adapter will allow me to use the affordable 717AH quick release system on my other camera gear.

Using Fusion 360, a 3D Printer, ABS Filament, some supplies from the hardware store and a lot of trial and error, I was able to solve the need and in the was successful.
