3DPrinted Camera - Open Reflex

100% Open-Source ! Fell free to copy, understand, improve then share again !
The OpenReflex is an Open-Source analog camera with a mirror Viewfinder and an awesome finger activated mechanic shutter (running ~ 1/60ÃÂ°s). What's more, it's compatible with any photographic lens.
All the pieces easily printable on an recent RepRap-like ABS 3D-printer without using support material ! Everything should print in less than 15h and anyone should be able to assemble it within 1h.
All parts are separate ( Film receiver, Shutter and Viewfinder ) to simplify builds and modifications.
The source files are available under the CreativeCommon By-Sa license, fell free to modify them if you want a new feature, and don't forget to share your improvements here. ;)

so if i wanted to print out these files and assemble it AS SHOWN HERE, what kind of lens/mount would I need? Nikon, I see. But what MOUNT?
ANd if i wanted a Canon EF mount, how would I find/make that?
IMO: Don't waste effort in printing a lens. Concentrate on a lens mount for a specific manual lens. For example, there are tons of otherwise useless, very handy Canon "FD mount" lenses. If you go with Canon choose carefully. FL and R mounts are too old and harder to find. A Nikon fan here can recommend the manual Nikon mount most abundant. In designing your wonderful camera I would concentrate on two things. First, keep the focal plane as perfectly flat and perpendicular as possible. Second, Make the film transport as carefully as possible so the film is guided (hopefully) mainly where the sprocket holes touch the camera to eliminate the possibility of scratching the emulsion. Don't worry how it looks on the outside- makes for a more unique camera. Good luck! What a great project!
