GoPro Hero 3 Lens Hood - Small
K2theM @biff2 I have contacted Shapeways, and they are looking for more information about the part you received. If you could post the following, it would be helpful: A picture showing the ill fitment A picture of the bar-code on the bag the part came in. Thanks
K2theM @biff2 That's odd that one would fit but not the other. They were both modeled using the same base part in Solidworks, so there should be no large change between the dimensions of the rings. I also made this version specifically at the request of a user, who was most satisfied with the result (plus the part has been printed several times without issue so far). So to me this sounds like a Shapeways printing issue. Anyway, I have a contact message in with Shapeways, so we will see what they have to say about it.
K2theM @biff2 This is the first I've heard of a hood not fitting. The nature of a press fit design requires a precise fit, so I am a bit concerned if the prints are now arriving with incorrect dimensions. I don't believe there is any post polishing dome, or at least there shouldn't be for this model. A lens hood does not work so well if it is shiny. Looking through the order history, it appears you did not receive a polished finish, so the fit should be fine. Since this is the first I've heard of press fit problems, I'm unsure what to do. If you can be patient I will contact Shapeways and see I there is anything that can be done.
