A simplistic, but decently working design for viewing stereo images or photographs, using 2 acrylic lenses and a three-part 3D-printed Frame.
The Idea came to life after printing the terraPin 2HT Stereo Pinhole Camera and wanting to view the pictures in 3D. Although it works with a variety of stereo cameras, I can say that it definitely works with the terraPin Stereo.
Notice one of the middle frame cutouts is slightly larger to accommodate for bigger noses, like mine, but other than that orientation does not matter.
The Model itself is designed to keep its rigidity, while saving filament and print time. Pictures are held in place by the snap in strip on the Hold Frame, that has to be pushed into the opening after printing.
The parts are connected via nails/srews through the small holes in each frame.
Lens cutouts are 34,5mm in diameter and designed around Lenses with a focal length of 106+mm.
More specifically, look for a OM7 or OM Nr.7, Ø 34,5 mm, f +106 mm convex acrylic lens.
These are quite cost effective with a price usually under 2 bucks and are a pressfit with the given model.
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!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
