I am working on some mounting options for the fly and I will likely end up using the ring as a cutter since you haven’t responded to either PM I sent you asking for a STL of the fly itself for use as a boolean cutter. Short of finding someone to do a 3D scan of the darn thing, I don’t see any other practical way to model it given its crazy polygonal shape.
When I publish the meshes for folks here to print, I need to match your licensing as mine will clearly be a derivative if I use it as a cutter. I am trying to respect any licenses you intend to place on it. I just need to know what they are Its clear you intend for us to use it to print by the simple fact you put it up for download, but you have not stated your intentions toward making additional parts using it as source material.
You are welcome to browse my other published things to see that I, indeed, do credit other’s works even if its used only in a small way:
Also, can you confirm that the fly camera, when placed in the base rests totally on the base ring and those two two semicircular tabs on the bottom? It is not supported by the electrical contacts, correct? I mean if its setting on a desk in the base and you push down on the top of the camera forcing it down, it will not compress the contacts any more than it did just sitting there on its own. Am I correct here?
It appears that its supported by the cutout in the base and possibly those two rounded notches/tabs on the flat base between the two arcs of contacts. Lightly squeezing mine does not appear to make it move but I wanted to confirm with yall that my observations are correct.
