If there is a product to revolutionize the hobbies and DIY without doubt will be the 3D Printers (when masifiquen and lower their prices). An example of that is the project OpenReflex French designer LÃ©o Marius , a Camera made â€‹â€‹entirely analog 35mm with a 3D printer (except the lens and the film obviously).
The materials cost less than U.S. $ 30, and all components can be printed in less than fifteen hours and then be assembled into a task that can be lengthened for another hour. In short, in about 16 hours is possible to make a camera whose planes went free Internet , and with detailed instructions for assembly .
In order to improve future design iterations and facilitate any modification, Marius made sure that all parts of the camera have their separate 3D drawings, and promised to create a custom lens mount with the promise of support for any type of goal.
