Thingiverse user Walker shared a DIY photography project.
This is a 3D printable slide projector that will work with a Nikon SB-600 flash.
The goal of this project is to sync the slide projector with my camera so it will project an image or pattern when I take a picture.
For the projector to work you need to attach a flash to the back and a lens to the front to focus the light.
I find using a flashlight to get everything set up and in focus is a good idea, then switch to the flash.
I designed some custom slides with patterns for creating different effects. Mounted slide film works great too.
This model is set up for use with a Nikon Speedlight SB-600 and a Nikon lens mount. I’ve been using a bower 85mm 1.4 lens to test. But other lenses work. You just new to be able to open the aperture manually. Newer Nikon “G” lenses wouldn’t work as well.
This project was created in Tinkercad, and I used Meshmixer to generate support material for printing.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
