In this Episode:
Rod-connectors, 3D-scanning, 3D-printing and Main part finished

I’ve started work on the geared follow focus, but it’s tricky and will take some extra time to get completed. The FF-system will use glue (for now) to fit inside a structure that angles the torque 90 degrees, so your FF-knob/wheel is rotating towards/away from you. Just like any system today. The main gear that attaches to the lens will of course be adjustable and available in different sizes for different lenses.

Next episode: 3D-scanning, Reference data, Follow focus and assembly!
