Step 1: Sensor Harvesting
These sensors work like a film and convert the image into digital data. You can find different size of sensor in different cameras (Webcams, Photo cameras, security cameras, fpv cameras etc.) I used old webcam circuit.
Step 2: Starting
First of all I desoldered large parts and cables from circuit.
Step 3: Disassembling
I cut off the legs of sensor because I don't have a hot air gun :(
Step 4: Design
I got the measure and prepared 3d design.
Step 5: 3D Printing
I printed the ring as two part for better quality and fit.
Step 6: Shaping
I placed the sensor and started to rough shaping.
Step 7: Carbon Fiber Fill
I cut the strip from thin carbon fiber sheet and and wrapped it around the ring.
Step 8: Final Shaping
Complete shaping with files and sandpaper.
Step 9: Sanding and Polishing
Step 10: And Result
