This is a small demonstration of what can be done with 3D printing. Wild Films Ltd needed an attachment to fit a laser focusing sight onto their camera. After trying some concepts in wood, they then approached ourselves to model and refine the concept with a view to getting it 3D printed. Illustration of the concept below in Autodesk Inventor.
An stl file was exported from the model and sent to a 3D printer. The result back from the printer :-
The component was sprayed black to fit in with the rest of the equipment and the result is displayed below :-
The adaptor is the bottom left item! 3D printing is ideal for this sort of work, although like anything else it has it’s limitations. Thanks to Wild Films Ltd for allowing this widget to be discussed.
