Another step in transparent objects: lenses

Recommended Posts

Take a look at this project, it is a camera with lenses entirely made on a 3D printer!

It has some interesting ideas about how to get a smooth finish on transparent parts. Although the author uses a resin printer, the process he explains to achieve optically clear lenses might be usable on fdm printed parts.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
