Here’s a really quick and easy 3D-printable screw-in front lenscap design, set-up as a customizer application. Less than $0.15 worth of materials are used to make a typical size lenscap, yet they work well and can even double as color references.
An Instructable gives the details.
If you’re into photography, you may have lost a lens caps or two. Although not too expensive for a replacement, the cost can add up and shipping next day delivered can be pricey. A fully customizable lens cap you can make on your 3D printer is a great solution to a photographers common problem.
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!
