3D Printed Lens Cap

Inner Spring

Last week I ordered an Olympus 35 RC analogue film camera.  I paid a good price but unfortunately it didn’t come with a lens cap or case.  Fortunately for me I have the know-how and technology to design and make my own lens cap.

The image above shows the lens cap without the outer case on.  I designed the sprung locking mechanism so that it could use the resistance of the form and material to lock it into position.

This is the first revision of the lens cap and a few changes need to be made.  Stay tuned, I’ll add more pictures as I develop it further.

Let me know what you think and if there any design improvements I could make.
