I'm looking for the exact dimensions of the 110 film cartridge. I'll take any sort of information including the ISO whitepaper for it (which I would love to read), or if someone already has it in AutoCAD that would save me all the trouble.

I think a rhino file would be more useful, especially if you actually wanted to fabricate one. – Justin Dearing Nov 11 '10 at 14:59
How do you plan on doing this? – RCProgramming Nov 17 '10 at 22:15
On a related tangent, we might soon have digital 126 cartridges:… – Justin Dearing Apr 12 '11 at 14:12

Ah my knowledge of the ridiculous and obscure may come in handy! You want ISO 13450 (1996), which has all the juicy details on 110 film (size/shape of the cartridge, exposure area, speeds, etc.).

Sadly I'm not sure where you can get a copy without forking over the Swiss Francs to the ISO folks - Perhaps someone else has a hook-up though.

Perhaps also helpful - I think 110 is just a smaller 126 cartridge (it's been a while since I shot anything that wasn't 35mm or sheets/plates - someone correct me if I'm wrong).
If you can turn up a CAD document for a 126 cartridge you can shrink it 'till it fits...

It is a smaller version of the 126. I cant believe I didnt know there was 126 film, Im a bit upset with myself for that! Although its smaller by 35% in height and 54% smaller in the width that doesnt tell me what the dimensions of the case are. Im just trying to avoid taking one of the rolls I have, destroying it and taking calipers to it. Thanks for the comment :) – Jason Schorr Nov 11 '10 at 16:28
I wouldn't be above calipers -- I'd be interested in trying to print it on a Makerbot myself. – voretaq7 Nov 11 '10 at 18:39
As far as destroying a capsule, why not simply ask for a bunch of already developed capsules? – Justin Dearing Sep 18 '11 at 13:59
