Nikon Lens Cap Holder

Introduction: Nikon Lens Cap Holder

About: Product Design student at University of Oregon. Autodesk Fusion 360 Intern.

I wasn't terribly satisfied with some other Nikon Lens Cap Holders out there, so I designed my own using Fusion 360. This print will fit all LC-52 Nikon Lens Caps. It has a slight draft on the inside ring to make sure the lens cap prongs get a good grip.

I've included the STL file and the F3D file if you'd like to make any edits. The F3D timeline has further steps for adding embossed text to the inside bar.

Enjoy!

Great implementation; Voted - though with no access to a 3d printer I'll just have to make do with my pocket

This should work for any lens cap. But if you have many lenses how will it work for size. My lenses run from 58mm way up to 92mm (or is it 96?).

Great question Dan! This model will fit 52mm lens caps, however the design is parametric so you should be able to change the internal ring diameter and the rest will update. Are you a Fusion 360 user by chance?

Sorry I do not have a printer 3D printer. I am a camera buff and making the point so that others who attempt this should take into account different thread diameters for their lenses. Perhaps add circles for various diameters and this would be a cool design for multiple lenses. Just passing through. I have learned through many a lost lens cap to be careful. So now it is automatic habit to pocket it for me.

I like the idea though.

You make a great point, I'll have to consider how your feedback can be adapted into this design. Thanks!
P.S. If you are interested, I could customize a holder specific to your lens caps, print, and mail out to you. Just a thought. :)

Thanks! My mom always misplaces her lens caps, so I wanted to help her out. It's pretty handy to have on your strap. Let me know how it works for you and post a pic of your print!
