3D Printed Tripod Ball Head V2

A simple ball head for a tripod version 2. It works with medium sized camera nicely now, much more clamping force than v1.

Also I switched all the hardware over to US imperial hardware so easy to get for people doing a build in the US. You need 4 screws:

1/4-20 1.5″ Hex Head
1/4-20 1″ Hex Head
1/4-20 1″ Button Head
6-32 1″ Hex Cap Head

For the tripod mount I am using a screw in thread adaptor as a kind of metal thread insert, it came free with the gorilla pod.

Notes:

I printed all parts in one go, took 12 hours over night. After printing I had to clean a couple of the threads with a tap, 2 of the 1/4-20 and the 6-32 one. You might have been able to force it carefully but it was easier to clean as I had the correct size taps.
