Minolta 7000 Battery Upgrade MK2

So my last post was about building a replacement battery pack for the Minolta 7000. Since then I had a much higher quality 3D print made of the housing with some lessons learnt from the first version. This is the result.

This part was ordered from Shapeways and I'm quickly learning that they are so far ahead in this game that you should just go to them straight away. Incidentally you can buy this part from there if you want to build this.

Need some help building that? Well tough luck! I present to you the world's worst build log. Seriously everything that could go wrong with this video went wrong. I don't think I even build a single thing on camera.

So I might not be a videographer but you have to admit the end product looks pretty nice.
