    3d printed lensboard

    Hi all,

    Just some fun to share:

    Recently got my hands on an older B&L petzval to play with, the question became how to whip up a lens board for the old Calumet Black Beast to test this out on. Got my ruler out and managed to 3d print a lens board specifically for the lens and the retaining ring.

    All I had handy was red filament, so I had to prime and spray the boards backside black.

    Good for you! Most of my dozen or so lens boards are designed and 3-D printed here at home. They work great.
