I solve so much problem nowadays with the 3D printer. Now I'm making drawings for a bracket to the QHY5 camera and the Tokina 200 mm f 1/3.5 lens that I have attached to it. That is my auto guider equipment.
The latest, I have learned how to make pockets for the nuts, no more threading of holes. Easy of course for they who know how to do it:
My documentation about it:
Now I have come so far that I can start with making 3D CAD drawings for the pulleys I want to 3D print.
This is something new and I do a lot of mistakes, but still I have my first 3D printed puley and it looks to be usable.
First part of my documentation:
This is an sub part of my new setup for a 300 mm camera lens.
3D printing is amazing !
At last I have started to practicing how to make 3D CAD drawings. I really need these 3D printed parts for my astronomy projects.
For you who want some insight I have my first simple drafts of CAD drawings here with some links of information:
It will be a revolution for me to be able to make my own special designed parts.
To encourage and assist amateurs interested in making 3D printed spectrographs, we will prepare a web sub-group for them.
There are at least four concept designs being discussed - Paul's "LowSpec",
John's "Littrow", Christian's "UVEX" and Tony's "TRAGOS".
You are more than welcome to visit and check out this exciting new development in amateur spectroscopy.
