Hi all, just wanna find out what are the stuff that can be 3d printed and be useful for underwater usage..

 

 

1) Snoots

2) Inon extension knobs

3) Arms??

4) Ball Clamps??

5) Gears

6) Fibre Optic Ports

7) Macro Lens Holder

8 Macro Lens Flip Holder??

 

 

What else did anyone tried and tested ?

Thingiverse.com is a free library of thousands of 3D-printed objects, including underwater things.

Good luck!

I don't know about arms and clamps. Clamps have lots of torque on them and I suspect that is why they are all Aluminum rather than molded plastic. Molding would be lots more economical than 3D printing (you still have to finish things like threads) and lots cheaper than machining hunks of Al.

Clearly one area that is ripe for printing is focus/zoom gears. Those are ideal

Posted this zoom gear a while back. Thanks to the magic of Sharpie, this part is black now.

Let me know if you figure out how to print that flip lens holder!

I am planning to use a clamp design :)

I've been creating 3D parts using TurboCAD, then sending stl file off for printing. The gear I posted earlier cost $34 to print. I'm learning about the possibilities and limitations of the processes and the materials. It's quite fun.
