Camera gear is expensive and, unfortunately, tends to be the first thing that gets beaten up, broken, or lost. While it would be worse if your beautiful camera took the hit, the losses can add up. What’s more, it can be hard to find just what you want and need for camera accessories.
3D printed camera gear is an excellent solution to both these problems. With almost infinite customizability and an economical approach to creating replacement gear, 3D printing can make your life easier and help you save money.
With 3D printing, you can create lens caps, gimbal, and more to order. 3D printed camera equipment only requires a properly formatted and designed CAD file to create a product. Once uploaded to a printer, it takes only a few hours to print.
This is a great solution to that perpetual pain, lens caps, and other frequently lost bits and pieces. With 3D printing, you can have a whole set of appropriately sized 3D printed camera lens caps on hand and at a reasonable price. 3D printing does not have the lot size requirements many other forms of manufacturing do and you will be paying only for use of the printer and the material you use, not a ton of extra products.
You can also add your name or change the color of any 3D printed camera gear. This is a great way to customize anything. You can even 3D print a camera case just for you that will keep your camera snug and safe. Independent professional photographers might want to consider these options as a way to quietly show off their brand while they work.
3D printing also offers you a way to create more sophisticated camera equipment at a great price. If you are working with video, a 3D printed GoPro gimbal may help you make sure you can mount the camera where you want and keep it secure while you move. A 3D printed Steadicam is much more affordable than the already-assembled, traditionally manufactured ones you can find on the market.
