Leitz Laborlux S Polarized light system - 3D printed

#1 Post by Bogdan » Thu Oct 15, 2020 1:53 pm

Hi,
I just finished the design and trials of a diy polarized system for Leitz Laborlux S.
It's supposed to be used with the linear polarization filter foil that you can buy online from a lot of places, these are the holders to fit the cut to size foil in.

Files are here, if I decide to design a retarder holder I'll add it to the same.

Nice!
can you publish the sizes (diameter, side) of the polarizer needed?
Also the round holder, it would be nice to have angle marks printed in - like 0, 45°, 90°, .. so you know how the polarizer is rotated?

Thanks Patta, diameter of the round one is 48 mm and the side of the square one is about 21-22 mm.
As for the markings,they can easily be done but I considered they are not needed as this is used just for amateur ‘artsy’ work, not for cristalography or whatever else where measuring is needed. :)
I keept it as simple as possible. :)
