About Project

Ricoh GR is a pocket rocket. It’s small, extremely portable, fast to power on. Some users prefer to attach an optical viewfinder to the hot shoe, and soon they find 3D printed OVF is much more cost-effective compared to officially sold ones.

Solution

  • Step 1: First, the 3D model will be broken down into layers of 0.1 mm on the computer and sent to the 3D printer.
  • Step 2: Before printing, we need to fill the tank with SLS Grey Nylon PA12 powders. On a bed pressure, a 0.1 mm thick layer over the whole width is applied.
  • Step 3: Pre-heat the machine to about 100°C, and the laser will lit the powder and increases the temperature just above the melting point of the powders.
  • Step 4: After a layer is formed, the platform will lower down and produce another layer.
  • Step 5: When the printing process ends, remove the excess powders which also serve as supports.
