3D model description


I've just changed the design so that a Pimoroni Ninja Raspberry Pi case can be used. You'll find a .stl file for the mount in the files section.
The PiKon is a 3D printed, Raspberry Pi powered astro-cam. The design was made for Sheffield University's 'Festival of the Mind' to demonstrate what the 'citizen scientist' could do with disruptive technologies like Raspberry Pi and 3D printing.
The project attracted worldwide press attention as the first 3D printed telescope and went on to be successfully crowd funded offering everything from components to full pre-printed kits.
