I’ve come up with a solution to create a rock-solid monitor mount with some off the shelf parts (from the photography world) and a simple 3d-printed mounting plate.
The existing 3D printed / magnetic arm thing that it came with out machines was… lacking. the magnets weren’t strong enough (you could easily bump it and have it fall), the arm wouldn’t lock tight enough, and the hardware stripped on the first day.
My solution still uses a 3D printed part, but instead updates the connection to be metal & mechanical, not relying on the strength of the magnets or durability of the 3D printed parts. The same mount plate could be milled (using our machine) with HDPE or Aluminum, both of which are on my list of things to do in the near future.
