Looks like I wasn’t the only one thinking about making quick release plates with the makerbot. Thingiverse member NRP put together this version of the 501pl quick release plate. His design is a bit different then mine but it’s cool to see that the idea works. I also found a few designs for quick release plates that are no longer made. This could be really great if you own an older fluid head tripod and need a few extra QR plates. I’m sure that as more people get 3d prints up and running there will be more and more useful camera gear designs released.
