A major improvement (i hope) upon my first pinhole camera design. Fully functional and with a few easy steps, ready to use.

-Film advance and rewind dials
-a clicker to tell you how far to advance the film. (8 clicks per frame)
-a shutter with a safety, so you don't accidentally take a picture of the inside of your bag
-a removable viewfinder
-an easily loadable film carrier, that slides in and out of the camera body (little rails on the inside to keep it in place)
-PRINTABLE ON A MAKERBOT (and probably on a RepRap too)

This time it's fully functional, and only requires a few pieces of hardware to assemble and use:
-a small cabinet hinge, to mount the door
-two machine screws
-two wing nuts
-four 10mm long screws, to put the film carrier together

Also needed:
-A soda can, to make a pinhole
-Electrical tape, to tape the pinhole
-3m (or other brand) foam tape, to seal the door

More explanation and instructions to come within the next week.
Thanks for looking!

i like it, you should probably make an stl. file :)

Thanks for the comment Tom.
I was thinkin' that myself, but all I have is sketchup free edition, and I don't think it can export as .stl, can it?
Is there a free CAD program that can do this? Anyone want to help me out?


Sketchup can't export stl ? I think he can. ;)

I work on a pinhole box to (check my profile) and i'd like to continu and follow this project.
I'll gona do the first print test Friday if al good, If you want we could keep contact ?

Well with SketchUp free, you can only export .kmz and .dae with 3d models, but I found a plugin: http://www.guitar-list.com/download-software/convert-sketchup-skp-files-dxf-or-stlhttp://www.guitar-list.com/dow...

So now it is available as an stl, yay!

Leo, I'd be honored if you wanted to use any or all of my design. Definitely keep me posted on your progress, especially if my design sucks, or is failing. I'll be posting some instructions this week, but feel free to mess with the .skp if you have more ideas. Have fun! :)

P.S. Wow! I really lik
e your pinhole design, so compact!

Ah, dang, I should probably save each component as an individual stl...
coming soon!

OK, all the components are separate .stl's now!
