Hello, is it possible to have your design files so that I can make a remis for another brand of flash, please ? Thanks !

it's probably easier if you simply download the STL and import it into your 3D application (I just use TinkerCad) - that is how I made it in the 1st place.

If you want to use the original - I just made it public on Tinkercad - search for "Canon fit flash lens - v3" and you should find it

Hi, thanks, I've found it. When my remix will be done, I'll share it here and make a link with your first design

May i ask how much space (mm, cm, inches) did you leave between the lens and the slides? I just found this last night but i made a 3d design of my version of lightblaster and ive been investigating about dimensions and space berween stuff so the slides focus properly

there is 41mm between the slot for the slides, and the end of the unit where the lens attaches. this does allow it to be pretty well in focus - I think it is probably 1 or 2 mm out from perfect. but there is enough leeway in the lens itself.

Thanks for the great design! I will try to print it myself as I have thousands of 35mm slides waiting to be digitalised :)

Although I don't own the canon lense you mentioned, I will try with a different one.

Question: is there any need for a diffuser?

hi, this is designed to allow you to project your images onto a wall or subject for the purpose of adding interest to a photograph. I am not sure it would be suitable to allow you to digitise slides (maybe you should look at getting a USB Slide scanner). this should work with any Canon fit lenses - but for my purpose it does not need to focus perfectly, your mileage may vary. does not require a diffuser, but should work with one.
