terraPin Prime 3Dprinted Pinhole Camera
In a quest for an easy-to-print and -assemble pinhole camera design, I present the terraPin Prime. There are only four parts to the body, plus the winders (many options for this), using gaffer tape for some tasks. The only fasteners are the fixing bolt for the cap and the pivot for the shutter. Easy-Squeezy! (Make sure you are using absolutely opaque filament!)
Like all my camera designs, I have posted ALL THE PHOTOS I have made with the Prime.
The source file to 3D Print are freely available for DOWNLOAD.
I am working on a revision of this design, called the ACME, which HAS NO FASTENERS! Purely snap-together assembly! Stay tuned, kids.
