This is a simple connector between Canon Camera and a Helios lens from Soviet Zenith camera. I made it with my Prusa Air 2.


Print both parts, glue them together. Then you'll need to cut a thread on the second part (be sure to print it thick enough for it, I used 5 perimeters and 0.35mm nozzle)

If you use ABS you can try acetone to soften threading place and then twist it in place, hold for few hours to vapor aceton and it should be OK. Will try in few days.
And also I check the model and it seems little undersized (2-3%) - I printed it but part for Canon is dropping away from Canon body. Will try print it in 103%

Make my variant printed in one part with support, see here:
