Today Trimaliny will show you, how to make a camera, without any electronics, using only a 3D pen and its capabilities.
The principle of a pinhole camera is a light-tight box, with one tiny, precise hole in the front so light goes in exactly the way we want it to, and old-school photosensitive film.
First, I have made the main body of my pinhole camera, drawing box where will be the film stored, with thick walls so no light can get in. I have switched up the colors during this process, so the camera looks a bit funky and fun. In the front, I have left a big hole, where I have put separately drawn round disk with the most precise surface I was able to create in the center, so this cap covers the hole as well as possible.
Next, I have smoothened out the sides of my main box, so the film can glide smoothly inside and so I can hold the camera comfortably on the outside.
Also, I need access to the film, to develop it later. For that, I need doors, which will fit well enough that no unwanted light gets in, and I can switch the film easily.
After a rough drawing of the back door, I have smoothened them and fitted them using the burning attachment. Next is the winding mechanism for the film. This part required just a little bit of fantasy and not much tinkering.
Now it’s assembly time! After final assembly, I decorated the camera with great details to make it look better and it’s time to try it out!
Have a look at the results, pretty good, aren’t they?
