Tim Sutherland Posted August 8, 2016 Report Share Posted August 8, 2016 Here is my 3d printable shareware low mode wrap grip project. If you make one for yourself and find it useful please consider sending a paypal donation my way at lisselandtim [at] Gmail [dot] com. I wanted to buy a wrap grip for low mode but couldn't find any for sale. So I created my own version that can be 3d printed. The design is for a 1.5" post, clears the fork of my pro vz gimbal just fine. Both halves are identical, so you want to print 2 to make one grip. There are small tabs for alignment and slots for square nuts and 10-32 screws. You'll need 2 10/32 square nuts and two 10-32 x 1/2" Allen drive screws. Optionally you can grab some grip tape such as this Grip Tape from Amazon Outer Diameter is 62mm, or 2.55". Due to the size of the square nuts, it had to be this big to accomodate a 2mm wall thickness. Here are a few photos from Joel San Juan who helped me out testing. Here are the links. They are on Tinkercad, where you can download the printable file in your chosen format or upload straight to a service like shapeways or 3d hubs. If you're in LA, contact Alan Rancher at Media Blackout for printing. 4" 4" Wrap grip half 3" 3" wrap grip half 2" 2" Wrap grip half These come out somewhere from $20 to $50 per half to get printed. I would recommend going with nylon or PETG at max 100 microns. The black prototype printed at the top of the page is 300 microns ABS, neither of which are ideal. Let me know what you think.
