can you list the dimensions of one of the objects, because when i open the stl. file in rhino to print, im getting crazy large dimensions of the individual pieces (from 40 inches to 90 inches). anyone else have this problem? but if you just share the dimensions i can easily rescale everything according to one measurement. thanks!

I'm printing this out now. Will upload pictures when I've made more progress.

Nice !

If need more explication don't hesitate to ask.

If interested, next I'll work on a smaller version, for only 1 picture on photo paper (long exposure) working with an Ikea cooking timer that would control the obturator. Mutch shorter to print that i could easy multiply.

this is great! what program did you use to design it?

I use SolidWorks, I'll upload the designs files tonight with an fully monted picture. (I hope)

Absolutely awesome!

This is freaking awesome. I was thinking small by starting to design a tilt/shift adaptor for my lenses, this is great.

Thx, If it can help. ;)

The goal of this box it's that can be easy changed.

The front part can be easy changed for use an different focal or adapt an real lens, the film box are the same.

For exemple, I'm looking now for an old camera with an shutter on the lens (as on most of folder camera) and adapt it for use on this box.

This is great, I am so impressed

Do you have a photograph of the completed assembly? I think that might be very helpful for some of us.

I forgot to take some and I lend the final print to a friend.....

I ask him to send me a picture of it but I'm still waiting.

I'll try to upload an assembled CAD preview in the evening.

Here it is, I hope I'll help. ;)
