1. 3d modeling in solidworks
To start this project we firstly gonna need a 3d model of a standard DSLR lens kit. Luckily a friend Daven from channel Make anything already made a custom lens filter model but we need to make a few adjustments for our lens to fit in snuggly. You can download and original and remodeled file down in the links below.
2. 3d printing and mounting
The adapter is actually made from two independent pieces so we need to brake some small supports that are holding those two pieces together. With a little bit of force you should be able to separate them apart. With sharp knife remove some leftover retraction strings and we can finally insert the lens. I have used two different glass types. First one is a common concave lens with which we can shoot macro photographies and the second one is a common flat glass that will serve just as a protective layer. To install the lens simply align it with the adapter and push strongly until you will hear a click when it will pop in its place and this is pretty much it. You can also apply a few drops of super glue if your fit is not perfect and here we have it. The lens kit can be easily attached to any DSLR camera and It doesn't look so weird as I firstly thought it would be.
