You need a 3d printer with a large print volume, this was designed to fit
on the Ultimaker, but I believe the Replicator should be capable as well.
Total cost of all parts comes to around $450 (see BOM below)
while waiting for the prints, order parts needed from the following BOM
this is going to be a bit of a work in progress, I am working on a
complete build log, with step by step instructions, might be a week
or 2 before it's complete, check back!
(the exploded view photo here should give you an idea how the pieces fit)
the zip file contains the gerber files needed to make an LVDS -> HDMI
breakout board, just send the zip to a place like itead studio etc.
or etch your own.
There are 2 "Lens Plates" in this design, one for a LEEP optics variant for the 120+ deg fov, and another that uses 50mm lenses, that give you a 90+ deg fov. the choice is yours, if you do use the LEEP optics, read the notes below regarding the lens grinding jig.
the holders are used to clamp the large lens of the 2 lens set, you then use a belt sander to grind the edges down till they are flush with the printed jig. simple..
