Great STL - it was easy to download and build. Perfect fit with no modifications. Cura slicer + monoprice mini FTW. Thanks!

I just checked the sizes.. as it does not have to be very tight on the lens side, 31.8 is the diameter of the lens, on p3A and (I assume standard too), so perhaps 32mm would be perfect, easy to put on, but have enough play?
With a filter on, all of my filters are about 34.4, so perhaps 35mm would not kill anyone - again will be a bit lose, but I do not think that would matter much... It increases the depth of the lens by about 1mm from sock.

Thanks so much for designing this. My Phantom 3 Pro didn't come with a lens cover and the gimbal bracket just won't stay put. This was the first thing I've ever printed after building my printer yesterday; it came out well and was exactly what I needed!

Where did you get the "Remove Before Flight" banner/thing? Cool design!!

Just Search on Ebay there are plenty of them ;)

Just printed this using your settings and works a treat on the DJI Phantom 3 Standard. Good Job. I have taken picture but dont know how to put it on here.

Cheers again.

I just had this made and found out it does not fit over the PolarPro filter on my Phantom 3 Pro. I also find it a very very tight fit on the top gimbal bracket. Overall its a great concept

Thanks for the cool work, but i have the problem that it isn't possible to slice it
i get a lot of Unable to close this loop having 100 points
erros, could you pleas help me

Hey toohighjumper
Your model is just a little small for the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced. Can you make on that is like 2mm bigger?

Sure. The widh of the diameter of the lens cover or the lengthof the holding arms ?

The diameter of the lens cover is a little to small.. I sanded mine down a little and made it fit, if you would like to make another model though I will print it and tell you if it works!

Did you even try the "4Filter" version?
This got a 2mm thicker inner diameter of the llens cover element.

I don't use a "ND Filter" of a "4 Filter" so I figured it would be to lose?

Thanks!!! your effort is greatly appreciated.... Can I just ask you for a favor. Since I lack the skills to do it myself, I wanted to ask you if you could do a variation of you creation. You see, I got a Polar Lens Filter for my P3 but the outer rim of the lenscap is a bit wider than the original one. I measured 33.3mm with a caliper of the outer rim in the lenscap, so perhaps, enlarging by 0.6 or 0.8mm the inner diameter of your round lens cap, a lot of people would be able to fit this filter with your lock. As I mentioned before, my guess is that this is simple, but I lack the skills to do this...

Thanks once again for your design...


Cheers Carlos,
sure i can ;) i`ve uploaded a version that should fit.
Please check it out and let me know if this is going to work.

How about install with P3 standart? Any Problem sir? Thanks...

do not works!!! beacuase of the cables!

Hey Kado,
i don`t own a P3 Standart at the Moment but i suggest that it should fit as well.

Thank you in advance sir...

Because, i need a P3 standart for gimbal lock...
