BH2 UMA to MTV3 Adapter

#1 Post by microb » Sun May 19, 2019 2:12 am

Doing a tube lens set up for a BHM microscope. So using the tube lens un the UMA epi, and instead of a triocular setup, the following modeled tube hooks up to a MTV-3 adapter that has a lens to aim light for the C-mount camera.

Here is the 3D print with and without the relay lens, along side the triocular head it matches:

Way cool! How long did it take to print? We 3D print some prototyping parts at work, takes a while some times, but very well worth the effort.
