I tried to hold a 10+ lens in front of an unmodified C615. It did not magnify the object very much. But I am no optics expert. Probably there is a better solution. It always breaks my heart, if I have to modify nice hardware in such a way :(

I read you have to remove the hardware auto focus of the web cam. But you can disable that auto focus in the control software. Is there any reason for this? Maybe to get a better optical zoom together with the +10 lens?

I have not experience with other projector. The main thing isto get the focal point at the center of the turntable with macro lenses. In my case, the first macro lens is just glued to the projector. I think this should work with any hardware. You can download the CAD files on my homepage www.virtumake.com and modify them as you like :)

Do you have experience with other projectors? What about Philips PPX2055 PicoPix (Kontrast 1000:1, 854x480 Pixel, 55 ANSI Lumen, USB 2.0) It is small and cheap. But I don't know if you can mount lenses.
