OkayÉ That guy with the chainsaw, he just
started it up. Hey folks! Matt Monroe, the Nasty Clamps’
guy with yet another video for you. This one’s a bit different than unusual though.
This is an experiment, and it’s experiment in technology, product design,
3D printing, and all sorts of cool stuff. Here’s what’s going on.
I have one of these. And chances are you do too.
It’s a GoPro camera. Super super popular. Now, I also have happen to have one of these.
You probably know what it is, it’s a painter’s pole.
it’s collapsable, and more importantly, it’s extendableÉ
Like thisÉÉ Okay? That’s a twelve foot pro pole there. You find
these at any hardware store. Anywhere from 4-24 feet. They’re great!
Now, what if you could combine thisÉ With this, somehow.
LikeÉ I don’t know. Somehow get that on there. That would be great, but I poked around on
the web, and nothing was out there. Hmm, interesting? So I got a piece of paper
— drew that. I’ve then took that image into my computer.
Made a rough 3D sketch, and then I sent that 3D image off to a designer.
He tweaked it. He massaged it. And then sent me back a 3D file,
which I was able to send off to company called Shapeways.
Shapeways does 3D printing and plastic. In the period of three weeks, I went from
a simple sketch, to this. A physical product, hard, plastic, and totally
usable. In fact, I’ve been using it a lot this past
week. Here we go, like this, screws on to the painter’s
pole. Drop your GoPro inÉ Oh! you need that, the
long screw from the GoPro. Pop that in thereÉ And check this out!
So we got that, we can also do that, thatÉ And more importantlyÉ
That is super handy. In fact if you’re shooting longboarding, skateboarding,
BMX, mountain biking, kayaking, or architectural, this would be a life saver.
So I’m selling itÉ Not on the nastyclamps’ site.
Instead, I’m selling this on the Shapeways’ site.
I’m selling it as a 3D printed product. Here’s the URL — Okay?
I’ll put a link up after this also. But this is cutting edge technology.
I’m saving time, literally months by not having plastic injection molds made,
and also saving a ton of money by not having plastic injection molds made.
I’m actually saving about twelve to fifteen thousand dollars.
Now, here is the catch. These are expensive to print out.
UhhhhÉ They’re forty-four bucks. Is that pricy? Yeah it is! So what?
If you’re trying to shoot action sports, you need something like this.
You need something extendable. And more importantly.. Well, it’s not more important…
But these painter poles? Find them anywhere. Any hardware store.
So, go to the Shapeways’ site, and check it out.
Now, when you purchase one of these, your gonna’ need the Pro Pole Mount,
that’s what I’m calling it, the Pro Pole MountÉ The long screw from a GoPro, you have one
of those if you have a GoPro. A 5 millimeter acorn nut, because they can’t
print those out. Get these at any hardware store, they’re about
fifty cents. And the GoPro camera.
That is all you need, check it out. Stay Nasty!
and tune in again…
