An OpenSCAD module (STL also included) for a Canon EF-M lens mount (the lens side). My initial use for this was to make an adapter to connect my Canon EOS-M camera to a telescope. Hopefully this module is useful to others that want to make custom EF-M adapters.

The design has a recess for the lock pin so it should bayonet and lock like a normal lens. The bayonet fins are tapered slightly for a better fit on the camera and should allow printing without any clean-up. There's also a channel for the electrical contacts so that the mount doesn't push them in too far - I had issues in earlier designs with a pin getting stuck in the pushed-in state. The camera-side of the mount includes a small alignment dot, but I would probably add a more visible dot to whatever is added to the mount.

I was inspired by http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:10829, an EF lens mount, but did not directly use any of the design because EF-M is fairly different. The partial rotate extrude code from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:34027 was extremely handy since it allowed me to easily make the more complex tapered bayonet fins.

Hello mate great work, just wondering what do you call this kind of design where it has 3 locking thing on the side like an engineer term so i can search it online to make my own. I been looking everywhere and still dont know how to do something like this in CAD design. Thanks

It's a type of bayonet mount, so I'd search for "bayonet mount" or "bayonet ring mount".

thank you yes thats the term ive been looking for
