With this last shred of information, it's a good time to step back and think about how this part was actually produced.

This end cap, like all the other parts of this camera, was designed in a Computer Aided Design (CAD) package by mechanical, electrical, material and systems integration engineers. Prototypes were produced and parts were iterated to create a more polished end product.

Along the design process, various Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) simulations may have been run on the parts and assemblies to ensure proper fit, ease of manufacture and endurance. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are two of the most popular CAE tools in use today.

Autodesk Fusion 360 will be used to demonstrate FEA for this project.
