Description

I had a 80mm lens salvaged from a handheld item my kids broke. Did not like to throw it away.

It had been sitting on my desk for months, really don't like to chuck stuff out that is still usable. This build needs to tweaking. The joints are not very tight, and I think it needs some support, when in the unfolded position. Always possible to improve, not always enough time.
Nice salvage!

Instructions

This is my first multi piece object.
I wanted to try doing some hinges.

I drilled out the holes to 3mm and simply pushed some filament in.
