Author Topic: 4 shutter "iris" hatch  (Read 48501 times)

This is a better version of an idea I posted a while back. While not a true mechanical iris, a lot of people have found it interesting. This one was being made for a freind who needed an interesting way to display a photo of herself.

The outer ring is rotated to operate the shutters.

Doors closed


Half open


Fully open


Construction is from 3mm foam PVC board, laminated together with superglue and pivot points are 6mm Chicago screws.

Nicely done! Is that the finished product or do you plan on going further with it?

Very lovely--and well done as well.
Do you intend to sell these or take custom orders in the future?
I would love one myself--either to frame some steampunk photos or as an art piece.

Well its the finished product for my friend. I may make another one out of metal. I have been wanting to try some patina finishes that can be bought in liquid form. Forum member Maduncle has seen it and has some ideas.

That is magnificent!

I will post what she does with it

No I cheated a bit there. At work I have occasional access to a flatbed cutter. I needed to run some test files so I used this. I anyone wants the computer cut file I can send it to them.

Very lovely--and well done as well.

Please get a top hat and make an iris to put in the top surface that can open and release a small scouting zeppelin!

Fantastic!!! This would make a most suitable hatch-cover for a porthole in our submarine.

I saw some goggles with irises and thought they were cool, and was meaning on making some. And now from the looks of your pictures I could probably make some working irises

Would it be possible to get the schematics posted? I would very much like to have something like that as a small door on my Design and Technology product next year, sort of like a door to a small compartment maybe. Amazing stuff though, very impressive.

An excellent design! not only functional, but beautiful, elegant even, in the mathematical sense!

Now ... what can I use it for?  Cool

yeah I want to have a go at building my own one of those. i could use them for allot of things, maybe build some miniature ones to put on my goggles for example.

also, with the metal one your making you should film it opening and closing so we can see it in action.
