Crazy arduino tracking system idea.

Good afternoon,

How exactly do you mount optics to a random chip?

The chip fits snug inside of a plastic housing with a plastic dimple for the short lens.

Is it possible to connect or 3D print a lens mount for this type of thing? Are there any resources for it?

This is for a laser pointing system.

Thank you for your time,
Sincerely,
Yelizar Dergachev

you can buy them with optics - at least you could some years ago, I use them as optical flow sensors for ardupilot.

Hmm. Okay. I guess I will look for some on amazon.

Hot glue?
Epoxy putty?
3D printed housing?
By whatever means necessary?
Whatever is easiest for you.
You should probably start with something adjustable so you can figure out where the focal plane is.
