select enclosure feet
Open, NormalPublic

Description

The base of the Beta full enclosure is currently flat.
I want to add small "feet" but its surprisingly hard to source off-the-shelf parts that are not huge, ugly or glue-on.

Help me find a good solution.

The round flatter ones would probably be the most sturdy. Maybe include another 4 loose in the box.

Those are all glue-on.

That's what I was searching for. Assumed it would be best for everyone. There was some screw on versions but they were more like nipples eg https://www.banggood.com/4pcs-Furniture-Table-Chair-Foot-Non-Slip-Soft-Rubber-Pad-Cover-Clear-p-970553.html

Either way I'd keep them shallow. A mm off a flat surface maximum probably, Ideally a tenth of a mm IMHO.

maybe my original requirements were not 100% clear:
not huge
not ugly
not glue-on
:)

Soz. I came in from the channel.

Maybe this one but we need to have some place inside the enclosure for the screws ! It's also easy to remove them and also maybe possible to adapt for a 3d print solution...

it's not look like ugly or uge for me... but it's only my opinion

Those looks quite OK, but they are huge!

I was looking for something in the range of 1-2mm height.

why not 3.75mm, seems like a descent compromise. And I don,t think it is going to impact any external gear added to the camera.
