  1. I recently got into 3d printing and cad design. I printed some dome port protectors and gears out of flexible nylon. Also printed some rings to cover the lens info that can reflect off a port.
  2. Hello everyone, I thought my first post should be something that others might find useful. After quite a bit of saving and waiting I recently bought an Ikelite 200DL housing to hold my Canon EOS R. I've been out twice with it and love it, but found with the 8 inch acrylic dome that it's quite front-buoyant and after several hours of freediving with it that will start to cause some strain on my hand/wrist. I know Ikelite makes a trim rail, but I didn't want to spend money I'd rather save for strobes in the future. Lucky for me, I have access to a 3D printer and some filament that holds up well to saltwater & UV. With $1 in filament and a $1.50 in hardware from the local store, I have myself a fully adjustable trim rail that accepts most hard dive weights (only tested up to 2LB). The "base" that connects to the housing base plate, via the 1/4-20 threaded hole and a bolt, is also designed as a kind of handle (for in-water use only). That part is designed to mate with the shape of the housing base plate, but I can make it flat if there's interest from people with housings other than Ikelite that still have the 1/4-20 tripod mount. The bottom "rail" that the weight is ziptied to does not flex when in the water, and could be made thicker to accept more than 2LB if needed - it slides back and forth like the Ikelite rail system to move the counterweight as needed. Anyways, let me know if you have any thoughts or would like the design files to 3D print one for yourself. Happy to share and I hope this helps others who might be on a budget like I am. I'll post the design tomorrow on Thingiverse (a 3D printing file repo) and will update this post with the link. Might try to get some video of it in the water this weekend. It's a simple design that most printers should be able to handle and is plenty strong enough for the task. Hope it's helpful, Austin
