    Re: Just 3D printed a technika board

    That's up in the PETG range-- so you'll probably be alright. I haven't had much issues with PLA and Florida humidity, but then again, I don't leave my prints outside as a rule. The filament,...

    Re: Just 3D printed a technika board

    Or, I can download an STL file from Thingiverse,...

    Re: Why does the ground glass lack four corners?

    If I recall correctly, some early cameras have rising corners, so you cut the corner by a specific amount to get the glass to sit in the frame at a specific height.

    Then anything below a 175mm (14" is 355mm, half of 350 is 175) should allow you to reach 1:1.

    There will be a bellows factor that you'll have to factor into your exposure.
