  1. Hi all -

     

    I am putting together a Nauticam rig (Sony A7Rii if it matters) and am enjoying (/sarc) the cost of the various components. While I am not looking to cut corners and risk flooding my camera, I have been trying to buy used components and save money where possible/reasonable. As part of my research, I am looking to get a manual focus gear for one of my lenses (specifically https://www.nauticam.com/products/sfe28-f-focus-gear-for-sony-fe-28mm-f2). I am a little shocked that a ring of plastic with gear teeth costs $175. I have seen some 3D models for zoom gears (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:948608) and was curious if anyone had experimented with 3D parts.

     

    Obviously, I wouldn't risk a part that needs to withstand pressure, but for something as simple as a zoom gear inside the housing under vacuum, this seems like a reasonable way to save over $100.

     

    Thanks in advance
