Wanted: Lens Nut Model

Hey when I got my first OpenMV cam it didn’t come with the plastic nut to help with focal adjustment . I think it had set screws ?
Is there a 3d model for this nut available or a similar part with the same threading available for printing?

I have found a couple models but the threads aren’t in the model, threading models is where my modeling skills end, unfortunately.


Any M12 lock nut is fine. It’s all standardized.

Thanks, For some reason I was thinking the M12 was a camera term and not the thread size

just be careful, I assume its M12x1.0 used on industrial sensors and cables, not the standard M12x1.75 used on standard M12 bolts.

Good input, Thanks @effgee

I ended up 3d printing a spacer and snugging the lens up to that instead.
Perfect focal length and even the user can’t mess with it.

I think what @kwagyeman means is a M12 x 0.5 nut will work. The lenses have very fine threads, unlike a “standard” M12 screw.
