I redid this from scratch based on an original Canon lense-cap.
It has more details that the simpler copies from other lense
manufacturers not have.
It is also tapered to stay fixed in the lense.

I hope to print this next weekend.

Done in Alibre Design. (there is a 30 day trial that can handle this thing)


Make a lense-cap:
1: print
2: attach a plate to the upper end.
(not part of the design because the overhang would be nearly unprintable.)

Unfortunately, this is, as correctly described, the flange for a Canon FD lens Cap. Oddly, the lens cap flange is Not the same as the camera flange - it's a lot smaller and doesn't engage all three flanges - so while this part will sort of mate to an FD lens, it's a rather insecure mount. A potentially better flange is here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6948. I've printed this and noted the insecure mount due to one of the flanges not engaging. Haven't actually printed the suggested part yet, but it does look more like my actual camera flange.

Hey, did you ever get this to work? I've got a bunch of old FD lenses, and a CMOS image sensor that was never meant to be abused in the way I have planned for it. Hopefully, this model can be adapted into a housing for it.
