SLR Camera Lens Cap

SLR Camera Lens Cap by simonx Jun 30, 2013

Description

Replacement lens cap for an SLR camera (the design is based on a Canon lens cap). The cap is designed to fit on a lens with an inside diameter of 51mm.

If you what a different size then just measure the inside diameter of your camera & let me know - I'll upload a model of that size here. I created a parametric model in Solid Works so I just need to change one variable to generate a different size lens.

The SW files are on GrabCAD if you'd like a copy.

I had to print this out several times, 3 to be exact, of course I needed a 43mm for a smaller lens. I resized it using a 43mm ring created in Max and importing into Makerware and resizing to it. Things to consider is that the pieces are very close to each other which caused my print to have the two parts meld together at the push buttons so it was useless. I ended up resizing the center piece smaller, making sure no parts overlapped which is hard to visualize in Makerware but this finally worked.

Hello, I would appreciate it if you could upload a 46mm version of this cover for my brother in law ! looks very cool.

How about 52mm for Nikon and Lumix? and 58mm for (big) Nikon?

Instructions

I printed the cap section at 0.2mm, and the inside part at 0.15mm - but I'm sure you could print successfully at a lower resolution and do a little trimming with a craft knife.

Hi, I could use a 40 mm and a 57 mm version of this lens cap. The design looks really good.
