Download film spool adaptors for 120 film. STL Files for 3D Printing of 120 film adaptors

Here are STL and MakerBot files for 120 Film Spool adapters. The STL files can be opened with SketchUp (if it has the STL extension, which is free and from Google). The .X3G file formats are for the MakerBot 3D Printer. You can open these files in MakerWare, also free.

For the Zeiss Ikon. Don't know the film size, maybe 118? The spools are 89.3mm tall. The spool end is 31.6mm in diameter.

The next two files are MakerBot ".thing" file formats. They can be sent to a MakerBot 3D printer to create the film spool adapters for 122 film and 130 film.

NOTE: These are for Ilford film. Kodak spools are different. I'll make Kodak adapters if there is interest. I'll also put up the generic STL files as soon as I find them.

Let me know of any issues! Post comments below if they work or if you have suggestions.

  1. Hi Joe

    Have you got any further with making 122 end caps that I could purchase from you? I mentioned it a month or so ago on ephotozine.

    Thanks

  2. Gavin, I'm using a local university 3D printer. I was told I'm in line for printing more of these end caps after Jan. 1st. I need to get the harder resin copies made. Thanks for the kick!

  3. Joe,

    I'm going to share these files with a buddy of mine that has access to a printer. If you get the time to make a set for Kodak reels that would be great (122 size) since they would also work with Fujifilm reels.

    Acros should be beautiful with the larger size and I'm looking forward to trying the system.

  4. I think a great idea the 122 Film Spool Adapter for Ilford. I can not wait using it with my old kodak Autographic 3A. The problem is that the x3g file only can be used in makerbot printers, and I have no possibility of this type. Can you get the .stl please? I would be very grateful.

  5. Any chance you've gotten to make the Kodak 122 to 120 conversion? Great idea as no one seems to be doing this! Could even make a few bucks by listing it on a place like Shapeways. I know I would pay for it

  6. Hope that you have made some progress on this project. I am looking all over for an easy way to load 120 film in a 122 camera, and would love a 3D spool adapter versus trying to improvise something by butchering the rare old spools.

  8. Hello, this looks promising. Can anybody confirm if the film advance hole on the 122 film spool is the same size and shape of the one on the 616 film spool's flange? Thank you for your reply. Claudio
