We’ve seen 3D printed cameras before, but they include some prefabricated part: a hinge, a spring, or more complicated bits like shutters and iris mechanisms. If you’re looking to add a camera model for your micro, you can choose from different makes and models. But before going forward, just take a look at its important elements:
- Film cartridge
- Path of film across the frame
- Film take-up spools on the other side of the frame
- A set of gears to rotate the spools at the right speed
- A shutter
- An aperture plane
- A lens
- A door to access the film
- A lightproof box to hold it all
If you’ve got the camera … however you wish a case or mount to place it! If you have got access to a 3D printer, things suddenly get a lot of fascinating. You’ll use them with the ever standard print software system and monitor your prints. Use it for your fancy DIY monitor.
Here, it is the best 3D printed Raspberry Pi camera cases.
