I wasn't terribly satisfied with some other Nikon Lens Cap Holders out there, so I designed my own using Fusion 360. This print will fit all LC-52 Nikon Lens Caps. It has a slight draft on the inside ring to make sure the lens cap prongs get a good grip.
Discovered I had some older Nikon lens caps (36.5mm) with a 'lug' for tying them on, so that enabled a good solution. Added a quick disconnect baynet connector to facilitate changes to different sized lens (i.e. lenscaps) and voila ! All works well.
I am new to 3D printing and only use the printer at my library. So I don't have any design software. You put in a lot of work on this project. I am wondering if I could ask for a favor.
What I would like is to reverse a lens on my Nikon. There is a reversing ring (Thing 411379) available, but that means the end of the lens that is normally protected inside the body of a camera winds up floating around open to any random thing hitting it. Particularly if I an doing closeups!
So, is it possible for you to create a piece that would go on the exposed bottom of the lens with a Nikon lens cap mount that would take a filter on the other end and enough space between the two mounts that the lens glass is not touched when the filter is put on? Then I could put a skylight or other filter on the bottom of the lens and protect it from scratches.
I have never found an item like this at any photo store. It would be a very useful item for me and no doubt for many people.
If you could do this, I would be grateful. If not, life is busy and I fully understand.
