This is a parametric set of lens-gears for a follow focus.

Compatible with industry standard follow focus systems.

all gears have the same outer but different inner diameters.

(You you need not adjust your follow focus when switching lenses.)



All gears have their nominal inner diameter labeled onto them in 3d letters.
