3D model description

Impossible to find spares for the Bowens Illumitran slide copier!
An improved design would have been possible, but this is a copy of the original (1960s-80s) slide tray. You will also need a sheet of opal/white opaque acrylic diffuser, approx 77mm square.

Plus a slide support for unmounted 35mm and a 70mm slide tray.

Plus a M4/3rds camera adapter to fit the illumitran or Butterfield BPM bellows unit.

3D printing settings

Illumitran slide copier: support required.
M4/3rds adapter: FDM: best printed with M43 adapter on top (ie printed last), with support on M43 flanges (CURA: use concentric supports, draft 0.2 layers is sufficient).
