I got sick of smashing cheap glass screen protectors so I made this. It's mainly designed to be used with an Lisam LS210 frame and my 30 degree mount (found here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1394967), but there may be other applications. It secures to the frame via velcro strap.
I recommend to print it in black to stop light reflecting back into the sensor.
Inspiration came from etracer's design found here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1299062
- 30x30x3mm piece of acrylic/polycarbonate
- 4 x M3 nyloc nuts
- 4 x M3x10mm screws
- a drill press would come in handy to make the holes in the acrylic
- Clean up the print. Makes sure it fits the Yi snugly, some sanding of the inside lens hole may be required. It's designed like that to give a tight fit. You will also need to pre-drill the screw holes to 3mm.
- Cut the acrylic to size. 30x30mm +/- 1mm will do the job, 31x31mm is ideal.
- Drill the 3mm holes in the acrylic. It's easiest if you put the acrylic in place and mark whre the holes need to go with a pen. The holes are spaced 25mm apart for reference.
- Press fit the nyloc nuts into the print (make sure you have them in the right way).
- Attach the acrylic with the screws.
- Rip balls without worrying about lens protector breaking.
