    So a little over a year ago I learned Fusion360 so I could print an adapter for my Teradek / RT Motion thumbwheel to fit onto my GDU handles. Now with this whole COVID / murder hornets / riots business going on, I actually have time to take proper pics of the kit and see if anyone is interested in it...

    With Komodo coming out soon, I am imagining this will help out with the small form factor this camera will provide.

    Take a look at the pics and let me know if you have any questions.

    The original design was as you suggested, but I found putting it in the front is A)easier to use and B) can be used on either side. If you have a left hand thumbwheel, you can put it on the right side and have access to focus on start stop, as the button would be on the outside. If you REALLY want a side mount, I can make one. I just thought this was a much more elegant solution.

    Have you done it in 3D design/printing? Nice work!

    Yes, I learned how to use Fusion 360 to design this and then 3D printed it out of ABS here at my house on a Qidi X1 Pro machine. :)

    Impressive! How long in months or hours would you say it took to learn the ropes and print the product?

    Thank you... It takes a while of printing different things with various print settings to get a solid print on the 3D printer. ABS is especially finicky with build plate adhesion and maintaining heat in the printer to prevent it from warping while printing...

    Regarding learning Fusion 360- it took me a while, as it is a whole different language. Knowing I want to do something vs finding the proper tool to do so took me a bit to navigate.
