Since I have been working modifying action camera to be full spectrum I needed an easy way to add filters to the front as well as adjust the focus and this solved the problem. As simply print in TPU and it pressure fits on the lens of the action camera as well as allows a press fit of the IR filter. In addition it acts as a focus knob because the focal point of various wave length of IR is different so this does double duty. In addition it also can fit none modified action / GoPro style cameras to all filters such as ND or CPL's to be added!

Just about any that can do TPU
.2 or .3 You pick
20% (or abouts)
This should be printed in either TPU or other flexible dark colored plastic as the idea is it uses a stretch fit to hold the filter in place and attach to the camera lens. If you find a better filament, please let me know in the comments as I might like to also give it a try!
