This widget is an optional accessory to the P6*6 3D Printed Pinhole Camera.

I have received feedback from photographers that the snap-fit of the cap is worrisome. A popped cap means ruined photos. While it hasn't happened to me with dozens of rolls of film, I worry about it too. This clip slides onto the assembled body and cap, and holds the cap in place. It probably won't keep the cap from coming loose, but it will prevent the cap from coming off. Prudence dictates that you should confirm the security of your camera regularly.

Also included with this part is a spacer designed to fit under the opposite side of the camera, allowing you to compose and shoot level photographs without a tripod, while resting the camera on a flat surface. The spacer is intended to be removable and used as needed, but it could be glued in place.

Print the part as you wish. The spacer is attached to the clip by a couple of small sprues - trim these flush to separate the parts. If you really want to, glue the spacer to your liking on the knob side of the camera body's bottom surface.
