Cool project!

It would be interesting to see how this design could be optimized when printed with Black Strong and Flexible. With laser sintering, you should be able to dramatically reduce the number of different parts.

You'd have to paint it, though. As mentioned, BSF isn't light proof ...

A fantastic project to be sure. But one has to ask "why?" Apart from the obvious "Because I want to prove I can make it" answer, is this really practical? You need to buy a lens. For probably way less than you would spend on the material to print this you could buy a used film camera. And film is getting harder and harder to find. Don't get me wrong, as a former photographer I can appreciate the amount of work that has gone into this, but again, I fall back on my original question...
