Free blueprints for making your own cheiroscope

My cousin, who is also an Engineering student, was so nice to take the time and draw up the necessary blueprints needed to build your very own DIY cheiroscope.

Here is a link to a zip file containing the PDF-files: CHEIROSCOPE.
Lens specifications are also added in a text file.

An example of a cheiroscope built on the basis of these blueprints. It still needs lenses. "Here's my home-made cheiroscope using the pdf file designs. 5mm foam core and glue. No fancy tilt base, but it works."

      Aaron! Our forlorn son! I’ve wondered where you’ve been. 🙂 If you ever build it, send me a picture. Feel free to send me an update about how you’ve been if you feel like it.

      All best!

    Hello,

    I would be really grateful if you can find the right lenses for me on ebay.

    Best regards

      Thank you so much for letting me know. I migrated the website and this was a remaining ‘bug’. It’s fixed now. Let me know how it turns out! 🙂 Good luck to you and your son!
