Square Filter Holder for Open-source Optics
by jpearce, published
This is a filter holder for optical experiments.
This component is part of the Open-source optics project, whose goal is to radically reduce the cost of scientific optical hardware: by the [Michigan Tech's Open Sustainability Technology Research Group]( http://www.mse.mtu.edu/MOST).

This open-source filter holder is designed to hold a standard filter on a smooth 8mm diameter rod. Flip stl to print.
Use the OpenSCAD files to customize it for your application, print on your favorite open source 3-D printer and enjoy. Included are the main holder.
