@sentience Aha your right. I just changed the settings for you. You can order 37mm now, I will redesign my 3d model for you as soon the order arrives

@spruce I have tried, but the order form says the minimum inner diameter is 40mm.

@spruce Micro Four Thirds lenses commonly come with 46mm and 37mm caps. I’ve already ordered your 46mm holder, but I sure wish you supported 37mm in your customisable design! Even better would be if you offered a “Micro Four Thirds” model that had a 46mm holder in the ‘outer’ circle and a 37mm holder in the ‘inner’ cutout. :)

@vinayvidyasagar I did, but I will come up with a new product soon that is more suitable for crowdfunding

@spruce Have you tried kickstarter? you can raise the funds required to mass produce it

The 15k is roughly needed for a mold since this design can probably only mass produced with an injection molding process. Maybe I can redesign the product so it is suitable for a punch- or laser process.

$15K where did you get that number. Is that realistic? Did you price it somewhere? I'll put up the money if you want to go into biz.

Thanks for your comment. Well if I had 15k on my bank account, I would mass produce this idea. But I'm not a patent believer anymore. For most patents it cost you more then it saves. In most cases a short time to market will give you a large piece of the pie and at the time the copycats are producing copies, you announce your new product or a better version of it. We desperately need a new patent system.

I hope you already made a patent application for this genious idea. Please do not let someone else make lots of money with this. I´m a photographer too, and I hate losing my lens caps or searching for them - as well as I hate the cap dangeling around on one of those silly lens cap holders with a strap. Go for a patent application, I´m sure it is worth it!

I have some printed in Grey Robust, but White/Black Detail is also fine

That's a fantastic idea! What material do you think works best?
