Introduction: 3D Print Canon Hotshoe Mount Adapter
- Cover the contact points. I'm surprised Canon does not provide this, on the other hand, Nikon provides them standard.
- I wanted to design it in a way that will allow me to attach my own enclosures that interface with the camera.
Step 1: Design
I used AutoCAD 123D to design my adapter. You can see below with the design. Also attached is the project file.I exported it as .stl file then used Makerbot Replicator to print the object.
Step 2: Conclusion
With the object completely printed, it is time to try it out! Hopefully, it works! The design came out as I had imagined. The time lapse enclosure fits perfectly and snaps right in. Once in, it is very stable.
Just imagine the endless possibilities with this adapter, you can virtually mount almost anything!
